What is the best breakfast after porridge? Granola, right. Basically oats are amazing any which way you cook them. I go through so many Rude Health products with so little regard for my bank account, so I thought I would try making my own for once. Please be kind this is my first attempt at a Healthy Granola Recipe, this one is Almond and Maple flavoured, my old man seemed to like it and I started eating it with my hands so it must be alright (not really, I do that with everything).
Healthy Granola Recipe
- 3 cups of oats
- 1½ cups of almonds
- 2 tbsp. of pumpkin seeds
- 2 tbsp. of chia seeds
- 3 tbsp. of coconut oil
- 3 tbsp. of maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. of maca (optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C.
- Blitz almonds in a food processor for 30 seconds or until slightly broken up but not into a powder.
- Add to a large mixing bowl and pour in the oats, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and maca if using.
- Add the coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon to a small saucepan on a medium heat. Cook until the coconut oil is melted and a liquid with no lumps forms.
- Pour mixture over the oat mix and stir until all the oats and seeds are equally covered in coconut oil and maple.
- Spread evenly in a baking tray and pop into the oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Great on top of porridge, yoghurt, coconut yoghurt or just by itself eaten with a spoon and not an ounce of shame.
