If you’re like me, you wince every time someone eats shop bought granola thinking it’s healthy. It’s filled to the brim with sugar, that’s why it’s so wonderfully tasty! Nice as a treat breakfast, yes, but don’t be under any illusion it’s not got lots of added naughties in it.
So instead….make your own! It’s so easy to do and you’ll be having gorgeous tasty gluten-free granola all week – and you’ll know exactly what’s in it!
The below recipe will make enough granola for about 10 days for one person. Store in a sealable container to make it last. Typical serve suggestion: 3/4 table spoons of granola, with natural yoghurt and some fruit. Oh yum, I can’t wait for the morning.
- 200g rolled oats
- 4 x tbs agave syrup
- 3 x tsp vanilla extract
- 3 x tsp cinnamon
- 4 x tbs olive oil/coconut oil (melted)
- 50g pumpkin seeds
- 50g sunflower seeds
- 2 x tsp salt
- 75g sultanas
Pre heat the oven to 150 c
Put the oats into a a large mixing bowl. Mix in the agave syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and oil.
Mix everything together so the oats are covered by the other ingredients. Then add in the seeds and salt. Mix again.
Pour into a lined baking tray, and bake for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, take the tray out and stir the mixture to make sure the oats cook evenly and don’t burn.
Return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
Transfer to a large jar and mix in the sultanas. The granola will keep for 1-2 weeks.
Serve with greek yoghurt and fruit.
Put back in the oven for another 15 mins.
Take out, and leave to cool before transferring to your jar.
