Granola. I like it. I like it a lot!
Some shop bought granolas can be quite generous with added sugars, so I set out to try and make a granola which was still full of flavour but not loaded with added sugar. And this is the result.
I love some sprinkled on goats milk yoghurt or I just grab some to nibble on during the day when I need something to keep me going until the next meal.
There are many different combinations of nuts and dried fruits for a granola, try a few different combos and see what you like best.
-1 cup gluten free oats
-1/2 cup raw nuts (cashews, almonds or hazelnuts all work well)
-1/2 cup dried fruit (dates, raisins, cranberries )
-2 tbsp. honey
-2 tbsp. coconut oil or olive oil
-1 tsp. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix
How to Make
Preheat oven to 150 C and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and then spread onto lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes then give the granola a stir/shake. Bake for a further 5 minutes until the oats are golden.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Store in an airtight container.
