Homemade Granola

IMG_9534

 

I have been making homemade granola for years now, and I am forever changing my recipe to make it the healthiest I can! This recipe is super quick and easy to make and can be altered to your own taste/preferences – not to mention it is super delicious! I now struggle to buy store bought equivalents, as I can taste the high levels of sugar in them. It also lasts at least a week (if not 10 days)!

Ingredients

The Base

4 tablespoons coconut oil
150 ml honey
700g/800g oats

 

The Additional Ingredients

(this is what I like to add, feel free to add your favourite nuts and dried fruits to cater to your own preferences)

300-400g in total:

seasame seeds
pumpkin seeds
flaked almonds
sunflower seeds
poppy seeds

 

METHOD

 

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
2. Melt the coconut oil and honey over a low heat in a saucepan.
3. Once fully melted, add in the oats and stir till all the oats are tossed through the mixture.
4. Finally add in the remaining ingredients (seeds, nuts and dried fruits)
5. Place the mixture across 1-2 baking trays and place in the oven for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown. Toss the mixture with a spoon every 10 minutes to make sure it is cooked fully through and does not stick together.
6. Leave to cool for about an hour and store in a tupperware or glass container.
