One to make on a Sunday that will last for the week...if you can refrain from eating it all on Sunday night!
This recipe has got pretty much all you need in a bowl, refined sugar free and packed with nutrients so you will be ready to take on the day. Serve it with a milk of your choice whether thats nut milk, cows milk or oat milk, throw some berries on top and boom, you will be energised until lunch! You can also have this as a healthy snack throughout the day. Plain nuts just don't cut it for me. A handful of this nutty granola will definitely hit the spot!
Top tip: Nuts can be very overpriced but Lidl sell them for an amazing price and have a wide variety too!
1 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of cashews
1/2 cup of brazil nuts
1/2 cup of walnuts
1/4 cup of flaxseeds
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1/2 cup raisins or dried apricots
3 tbsp coconut flakes (optional)
200g seed mix
The mix I used included sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, golden linseeds and sesame seeds
For the syrup:
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea/himalayan salt
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan)
Put everything apart from the dried fruit, coconut and syrup into a roasting tray and thoroughly mix.
Melt the coconut oil in a small pan and take off the heat. Add maple syrup, cinnamon and salt and combine to create the syrup.
Pour the syrup over the nuts and seeds and give all a good stir. Once the oven is heated, pop the granola mix in for 15 minutes. Whilst you are waiting measure out the dried fruit and coconut.
After 15 mins, take out the tray, give it all a mix and cook for a further 5-10 minutes or until crispy and golden.
Allow the granola to cool, add the dried fruit and mix.
Store the granola in an air tight container. It should last for a week. But I doubt it will, its so moreish!!!
