Happy foodie friday! Okay, I’ll admit it – we are granola crunchers. Yup, we love the stuff, so I thought I would share with you our not-so-top-secret granola recipe so that you too, can be hippie wannabes.
Really Good Granola
What you will need:
4 cups of Oats
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup of flax
1/2 cup of wheat bran
1/4 cup of coconut
1 cup of almonds (however you prefer: could be whole, I used sliced)
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup of maple syrup
2 Tbsp of honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet (with an raised edge) with parchment
In a small sauce pan, mix maple syrup, honey, coconut oil and cinnamon
Whilst that becomes an ooey-gooey mess, mix the oats, seeds, flax, bran, coconut and almonds together in a large bowl. Then add the ooey-gooey mess to the dry ingredients and toss well. Spread on your baking sheet and cook for about an hour and 20 minutes, giving the pan a little stir every 15 minutes for a lovely even colour.
After that, it is up to you! If you fancy dried fruit go ahead and add if after the granola has cooled. Eat it straight from the jar or serve it up with yogurt and fresh fruit.
