HEALTHY BREAKFAST GRANOLA

Easy Peasy Homemade Granola

Clients often ask me to recommend healthy breakfast options and this is one of my breakfast staples.

I recently started to make granola at home as a way to control the amount of sugar and salt etc going into the recipe and to ensure it was packed with lots of nutrients instead. This is a perfect breakfast addition because it tastes great added to fruits, yoghurt or mixed into a smoothie or acai bowl. 

RECIPE:

Preheat over to 180˚/350˚F

200g plain oats

100g almonds roughly chopped

50g walnuts roughly chopped (hazelnuts and cashew nuts also work well)

100g pumpkin seeds roughly chopped

50g sunflower seeds

Half a cup of chia seeds

Half a cup of flaxseed

6 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

4 tbsp honey (optional)

Mix together in a bowl.

Pour into a large ovenproof dish and bake for 30 mins. Stir occasionally. Let it get a little golden brown. Tastes delicious and will make the kitchen smell amazing once the almonds and walnuts start to roast a little.
