Homemade granola is super easy, quick and delicious. Making your own allows you to control the amount of sugar and quality of ingredients, while also changing things up and adding in the flavours that you love. It’s packed with healthy fats, protein and fibre from the whole oats, nuts and seeds. This granola makes a great topping for smoothie bowls, yogurt, oatmeal, or just on top of fruit.
- 2 cups whole rolled oats
- ½ cup sesame seeds
- ½ cup flax seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/3 cup crushed almonds/walnuts
- 1/3 cup of dried cranberries, raisins or dates
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)
- 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- A pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well until everything is coated in the oil, spices and sweetener. Lay the granola out on a large baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes or until slightly golden.
Note: you can omit the nuts for a nut-free version.
