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.
