Homemade Toasted Granola

Homemade Toasted Granola.

This recipe makes the simplest, yummiest breakfast packed full of all the good stuff. Make this mix your own, add anything from your pantry; if you aren’t a fan of pecans or walnuts leave them out; if goji berries are too expensive, replace with cranberries, or anything your heart desires.

Pair with a splash of milk in the morning and yogurt, and don’t forget the fresh berries!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups oatsHomemade Toasted Granola.
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (almond, pecan, walnut etc)
  • ¼ cup flaxseed
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup goji berries/dried fruit
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Method:

  1. Turn your oven to fan bake 150 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line an oven tray or dish with baking paper.
  3. Chop nuts up to make them go further, and add to a large bowl
  4. Add the rest of the dry ingredients together and combine (leave out dried fruit as this goes in at the end)
  5. Melt honey and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl, and then pour over dry ingredients
  6. Mix thoroughly so everything is combined into a chewy, delicious muesli
  7. On the oven tray, pour the raw granola mixture so that it is evenly spread.
  8. Place into the oven for 12-15 minutes.  Depending on your oven you may need to keep the granola in the oven a bit longer.
  9. IMPORTANT: Keep an eye on it and turn the ingredients at the 7 minute mark so that nothing burns on the edges. Granola can burn very fast!
  10. Once toasted, take out of the oven and let everything cool.  Once cool, put into an air-tight storage container or glass jar, add in the dried fruit and shake around.

The granola will last for around a week to 10 days depending on how air-tight your container is.

Serve granola with fresh banana, berries, milk, and an extra helping of shredded coconut.
