10 Feb Homemade Granola
If you’re after a light, delicious brekkie, it’s hard to go past a bowl of granola. Chock full of nuts and seeds, granola delivers a protein-packed start to the day (with added texture and healthy sweetness to boot). Packaged varieties can put a strain on the hip pocket, but luckily you can whip up your own crunchy goodness using some pantry staples – in just a few quick steps.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 cups roughly chopped nuts, seeds and dried fruit
- 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup quinoa flakes (optional)
- 2 tbsp honey, warmed
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Spread mixture evenly onto a baking tray. Bake for around 25 minutes (turning once), or until granola is golden and crunchy. Cool and store in an airtight container. Serve with fresh fruit and Greek yoghurt.
