Granola is so easy to make and a healthy breakfast to have to hand. It’s great with a plant based milk and fresh fruit. ⠀⠀

It’s a case of mixing all the dry ingredients together with the melted wet ingredients, layering across a baking tray and baking for 20 mins.

Pre heat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

For this granola, I added a Christmas twist with a few warming spices. Feel free to play around with the recipe. You could add pecans instead of almonds, hemp seeds instead of sunflower. I tend to add 100g of each to keep a good balance. ⠀⠀

Dry ingredients:

100g rolled oats

100g almonds 

100g flaked coconut

100g linseeds

100g sunflower seeds

100g pumpkin seeds

1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon, ground cloves and ground nutmeg

Wet ingredients:

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together, then stir through the dry ingredients well. ⠀⠀

Line a baking tray with parchment, then spread the mixture across, so that it’s an even layer. I did this in two batches. Bake for 20 mins.

Allow to cool, then store in a glass jar for up to a month ✨
