This is my most requested recipe. Almond Granola is great for a quick breakfast, full of protein, fibre and nutrient dense.
With so called “healthy” brand granolas having as much as 26.7g of sugar per 100g of cereal and only 10g protein (Nature’s Path Nice and Nobbly) it is a great idea to make your own. You can make up a large batch and keep it in a jar in a cool place in the kitchen.
Use as a topping for a bowl of full fat natural and fresh berries. Add ground linseed and chia seeds to your almond granola for extra fibre, phytoestrogens and omega 3.
3 cups rolled oats
½ cup pressed apple juice
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
½ cup almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup sesame seeds
½ cup flaked coconut
1 cup of dried blueberries/sour cherries or unsweetened cranberries
Preheat the oven to 160°C (315°F/Gas 2-3).
Place all the ingredients, except for the dried blueberries, in a large bowl and stir well to combine.
Spread the mixture evenly over a large baking tray and place in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly browned.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool and then add the blueberries.
