Yummy crunchy granola, and you can easily swap the ingredients to make different variations
Course Breakfast, Snack

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Porridge Oats
  • 1 Cup Seeds (any you like or mixed)
  • 1 Cup Nuts (any you like or mixed nuts) whole or chopped
  • 4 tbsp Coconut Oil Melted
  • 2 tbsp Honey you could use maple syrup or date syrup

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 200oC and put baking tray in oven whilst it's warming to heat the tray, then turn the oven temp down to 150oC to toast the ingredients.
  • Toast the oats for 15mins, then add the nuts and seeds and toast for a further 15mins
  • Mix oil and honey (and any flavourings, spices, cocoa powder etc.) together then add to the dry mixture once it is toasted.
  • leave it to cool and then store in an airtight container.

Notes

You can enjoy it on it's own or try using it to top a smoothie bowl.
If you like your granola a little sweeter add 1/2 cup of dried fruit.
I use measuring cups but you could just use a mug from your kitchen cupboard.

Variations:

You can swap some of the ingredients to create different flavours here are a few examples
