Homemade granola takes about 30 minutes to prepare and is totally worth it! Homemade granola will give you a great portion of nutrition and a healthy start of the day, plus you can make it exactly as you like it.
There are many combinations of flavors for granola, so you don’t need to stick to my recipe 100%. You should add whatever fruits or nuts you prefer, so that you end up with your favorite breakfast bowl. The only thing you need to keep in mind is the proportion of wet and dry ingredients, so when substituting one dry ingredient for another, make sure to keep the same quantity of the wet ingredients. When you add extra dry ingredients, you will need to adjust the quantity of the wet ingredients, too.
I would love it if you share with me your favorite flavors and combinations!
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, cooled to room temperature
280 grams of old-fashioned rolled oats
140 grams raw nuts – almonds, cashews, pistachios
A pinch of salt
5 tablespoons (30 grams) coconut chips
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/3 cup dry cranberries
Preheat your oven to 180C (350F), fan-forced. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine honey, vanilla and butter.
In another bowl combine all dry ingredients except coconut, chia and cranberries.
Add butter-honey mixture to the nuts and oats and mix well to coat all dry ingredients (use your hands if you prefer).
Spread the moist mixture in a thin layer on the baking paper and bake for about 15 minutes or until granola is golden brown. Remove from oven and add the coconut chips, chia and cranberries. Stir again and let granola cool to room temperature.
Serve with yogurt, coconut, soy, almond or regular milk.
Keep in an airtight contained, in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
