Healthy Granola

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter with their loved ones and enjoying the time to relax!

I know I have said it before, but I just love breakfast! Granola is one of my favourites, because on busy mornings it’s so easy to put some in a bowl or jar, top with your favourite fruits and add some milk or yoghurt and you’re good to go!

Healthy Granola for Breakfast

I like to make big batches of this, so I always have it on hand for when I need it! What’s great about this granola is has a lot of my pantry staples in it, so I don’t need to be buying lots of items to prepare it!

Making your own granola is so much better for you than the store bought stuff and you can control exactly what goes into it as well!

Buon Appetito

Healthy Granola


Ingredients

Makes 3 cups
Author | The Unprocessed Pantry

1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup coconut flakes or desiccated
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
zest of half orange, finely grated
4.5 tsp honey
1.5 tsp coconut oil
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup apricots, chopped

Equipment
baking tray
mixing bowl
wooden spoon
knife

Suggestions/Variations
To make this in bulk, I would definitely double or triple the recipe.

I served this with some almond milk, a dollop of natural yoghurt and a sliced banana.

Method
Preheat oven to 150°c. Line a tray with baking paper.

In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, almond meal, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, orange zest and coconut and stir.

Melt the coconut oil and honey over low heat in a saucepan. Once melted, add to the dry ingredients and stir through until well combined.

Spread the mix onto the tray and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes to bake. Stir the mixture half way through to ensure even cooking.

Once the granola is nicely browned, remove from the oven and allow to cool. Once cool mix through the dried fruit.
