The Granola We Can't Stop Eating


Sometime you just got to keep it super simple! This granola recipe is tasty, healthy and is best enjoyed with yoghurt and fresh fruit or as a tasty snack on its own no matter the time of day.

Breakfast I have a tendency to be naughty with, in an unhealthy way! But a new year calls for new beginnings. I want to enjoy breakfast or a snack anytime of the day, knowing that I’m eating healthy and putting good fats in to my body and not just mine but my daughters too, it’s easy to stop off to Greggs grab a steak bake loaded with salt and bad fats, which in truth will fill my up for a short period, leave me sluggish and in no way good for me.


So this year I want to start off on the right foot making good healthy choices and what better way to kick it off, is with a healthy breakfast to keep me energised all the way through to lunch.

Another way that I am making healthy choices and starting my day right is with a 30 minute work out or a 10 minute meditation, I honestly can not recommend it enough, I feel great, my head is clear my mind is right and makes me crave even more putting healthy food into my body.


This super simple granola I make on a Sunday to see me through the week, you can store it in an air tight container such as Kilner jar or a Tupperware box and it keeps it fresh for the whole week.

Ingredients

4 cups of oats
1 ½ cup raw nuts and seeds (I used pecans, sunflower seeds and chopped almonds)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of sea salt


Directions
  1. Pre heat oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  1. In a large mixing bowl pour in your oats, nuts, seeds, cinnamon and salt and combine
  1. Melt your coconut oil and pour over your granola mix along with your maple syrup and vanilla extract, mix well
  1. Pour your granola mix onto your lined parchment paper spread out and then place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes
  1. Take out and leave to cool for up to 45 minutes, then eat if you like and store the rest in your airtight container and enjoy throughout the week
