Store bought granola often tastes great but is generally loaded with sugar. Making it at home is easier than you might think and is a fun way to get kids involved in the kitchen too! This recipe gets its sweetness from the coconut flakes and raw maple syrup with its crunch coming from the nuts and seeds. Feel free to swap any ingredients for ones you may prefer or have on hand, my list changes every time I make it! The good thing is this recipe is in no way fussy, I never weigh out ingredients, just add in rough quantities so there's no need to stress with a weighing scales! This recipe is dairy free, gluten free and free from refined sugar!
- 1 handful of coconut flakes
- 1 handful of gluten free oats
- 1 handful of quinoa flakes
- 1 handful of almonds chopped roughly
- 1 handful of pecan nuts chopped roughly
- 1/2 handful of flaxseed
- 1/2 handful of sunflower seeds
- 3 tbsp of pure maple syrup or agave
- 3 tbsp coconut oil (room temp so it's melted)
Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and gently stir until everything is evenly coated with the wet ingredients. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and evenly spread the mixture on top. Place in a preheated oven and bake for about 20minutes at 180', I usually give everything a toss about half way through. Leave it to cool completely before crunching it up with your hands to your preferred texture. Store in an airtight container and serve how you please! I eat this with milk as a cereal or with natural yoghurt, fruit compote and bee pollen as pictured! Delish!
