I’ve been getting a little fed up of the same old same old on my yoghurt, so I thought I’d give homemade Granola a go, I don’t really like the shop bought as they seem to go a little OTT on the sugars & fats. So I had a look at different recipes & come up with my own version of things I love.
Firstly I lined two large baking sheets with parchment & pre heated the oven to 130c Fan.
In a jug I put:
120ml Maple Syrup
2 tbsp Coconut Oil (I use Lucy Bee Coconut Oil)
2 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
I melted these together & set aside while I got the dry ingredients together.
300g Rolled Oats
100g Flaked Almonds (although I only had chopped Almonds, so they had to do)
60g Flaxseed (I use Linwoods Cocoa, Strawberries & Blueberries)
60g Pumpkin Seeds
60g Sunflower Seeds
60g Mixed Nuts
I mixed these together in a large bowl, then added the melted ingredients and mixed well
I then tipped half out on to one tray & the other half onto the second tray & spread out evenly.
& baked in the oven for 10 minutes
before mixing in
100g Mixed Berries
& placing back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
I then left them both on a cooling wire til completely cold.
When it was cold I put into a storage container, it should keep well for up to a month. (although it wont last that long with me around).
Of course I had to test it, so I had some on my natural yoghurt & I Loved it! Hope you do too.
After reading and enjoying many a Blog, I’ve jumped in feet first and started my own. I’ll be Blogging about anything in my day to day life, from Family and Home, to Diet and Well being. If it’s happening in my life at the time, I’m sure it will spill out into a post. Happy Reading.
