My Homemade Granola Recipe

 

Makes approx 21 servings at 40g per serving

Each serving contains approx 190 calories

 

Ingredients:

  • 500g Gluten Free Organic Oats (I used rolled oats here but any will work)
  • 40g Chia Seeds
  • 100g Mixed Seeds (I used Sesame, Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds)
  • 100g Chopped Mixed Nuts (I used Almonds, Hazelnuts, Pecans & Brazil Nuts)
  • 10g Dessicated Coconut
  • 50g Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 75g Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tsp Organic Cinnamon

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 150ΒΊc.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Use you thumb and index finger to “rub in” the coconut oil.
  3. Line two large baking trays with grease-proof paper.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly in a thin layer onto the baking trays.
  5. Bake in the oven for an hour or so (or until crispy), stirring halfway through.
  6. Optional – Once cooked, turn off the oven but leave the trays of granola in there. Allow it to cool gently in the oven for an hour or two. I find this gives extra crunchy granola!

TIP – Oats and ovens can differ greatly therefore the cooking time may be different for each person e.g.instant / smaller oats will take considerably less time to bake, thicker oats will take longer to bake. I find gluten free oats take the longest time to bake, some oats have even taken me up to 2 hours! I would recommend tasting it every 15 minutes to see how crunchy it is and turning off the oven when it is golden brown and to your liking.
