We have been making our own granola forever in our house – a weekly staple not just reserved for breakfast, sometimes its all I can manage after a late session at the gym or a late night at work when I need to eat NOW!
I try and source all organic for this delicious easy recipe which has no added sugar and is much better than the vast majority of the shop bought products available.
4 tablespoons honey
400gr mixed oat flakes
100g each of barley and rye flakes
25 gr each of toasted pumpkin seeds,linseed,chia seeds
100 ml coconut oil
40 gr millet flakes / wheat germ
50 gr each of your favourite chopped dates, cranberries,figs, prunes, apricot,
100gr mixed nuts – hazelnuts, pine nuts, walnuts, almonds
Preheat oven to 170deg C
Combine first 5 ingredients along with the oil
Spread out in a roasting tray and bake in a pre heated oven for 30 – 40 minutes until golden brown. Stir the mixture every 10 minutes to prevent uneven browning.
Allow to cool
Combine with the rest of the ingredients.
Store in an airtight tin – this will keep for about 2 weeks though it rarely lasts that long in our house.
Serve with Greek style yoghurt, organic honey fresh fruit or fruit compote for a delicious start to the day.
