    Delicious, Healthy & Simple Homemade Granola

    I’ve been promising this for ages and I’ve finally come through for you guys with my long-awaited healthy granola recipe.  When I first made this I was honestly shocked at how easy it was!  I’ve since adapted the recipe to be a more healthy & now use honey instead of maple syrup but if you have a sweet tooth, feel free to use syrup.

     

    I love breakfast but don’t like the fussing too much with it on a daily basis, hence finding a way to make breakfast easy & delicious.  I enjoy a simple breakfast consisting of this homemade granola, double cream greek yoghurt, fruits & honey.  So this recipe is perfect for moms or busy professionals because it lasts for up to two weeks.

     

    Okay let’s get into the recipe.

    Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups rolled oats
    • 1 cup almonds (chopped/blended) or walnuts
    • 1 cup coconut flakes
    • 1 cup dried cranberries or dried fruit of your choice
    • 4 tablespoons honey (you can also use maple syrup)
    • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
    • 3 tablespoons cinnamon

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 180°
    2. Chop the almonds or pulse them in a blender a few times but not too much, you still want a few whole almonds.
    3. Mix together the coconut flakes, oats & chopped almonds in a bowl & set to the side.
    4. Heat coconut oil on the stove, till melted then add the honey and cinnamon & mix together.
    5. Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mix & make sure all dry ingredients are coated.
    6. Spread a thin layer onto a baking and bake for 10 minutes until lightly toasted.
    7. If the oats is still quite damp, toss them up a little bit & pop back in the oven for a further 5 minutes.  Make sure to watch it closely as the coconut flakes burn quickly.
    8. Once the oats are golden brown remove from the oven, allow it cool & then add the cranberries ( or whatever dried fruit you choose).
    9. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.  I like to keep mine in a Mason Jar, purely for aesthetic.
