So, breakfast cereals… where do I even start? They are often full of sugar and other nasties. So why not have a go at making your own granola? It is the easiest thing to make and I promise you the whole family will love it!
Make a batch on the weekend for the week – get the kids to make their own version with their choice of nuts, seeds and dried fruit and store it in their own container.
Preheat your oven to 180°C
Lightly grease a large baking sheet with coconut oil
In a large mixing bowl, pour all the ingredients (except dried fruits) and stir
Mix well for a good 5 minutes until the coconut oil and maple syrup have lightly coat the ingredients. This will create a few crunchy clusters in the process
Pour onto the baking sheet and spread well. Carefully slide tray into the oven for 15-20 mins until golden. Whilst cooking – every 5/10 minutes – give a quick stir to stop any burning
Add the chopped dried fruits and coconut flakes - if using. Leave to cool and store in an airtight glass jar or BPA free container
Will keep for up to 2 weeks in a cool dry cupboard.
Serve with a handful of seasonal berries and your choice of milk, kefir or yoghurt. This is also a great snack for on the go or for athletes.
