Homemade Granola

Breakfast

Once you have made this, shop-bought granola will be a thing of the past!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup / 240g of gluten free porridge oats

  • 1 cup / 240g mixed nuts and seeds such as almonds, hazelnuts Brazil nuts, walnuts, pumpkins seeds and sunflower seeds

  • 1/2 cup / 120g good quality desiccated coconut or coconut flakes

  • 1 banana

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder (optional)

  • Coconut oil

Method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C/Gas mark 4

  • Put your oats, nuts, seeds, cacao and coconut, coconut sugar into a food processor and pulse just to break it down - don’t over blend it as it will end up like sand!

  • Place some baking parchment or bake-o-glide on a baking tray and brush with coconut oil

  • Pour the contents from the food processor onto the baking tray and spread out evenly

  • Blend your banana, orange juice and maple syrup in a food processor until it resembles a thick juice

  • Pour the whizzed juice over the dry mix on the baking try and use your hands to mix it all together

  • Place the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes

  • Once cooked, remove the tray from the oven and set aside to cool

  • You can now enjoy the granola! Serve with yogurt, berries, chopped fruit and honey

Tips:

  • The granola will keep fresh in an airtight container for up to two weeks

  • Add different nuts and seeds to the granola, find your favourite combination

  • Mix a spoon on inulin with your yogurt to serve to have a gut-healthy start to the day!

  • Try and keep your fruit seasonal. There are great frozen berries in the supermarkets for that off-season hit!
