Homemade Granola

If you're anything like me, you'll agree that there's arguably no better breakfast than a chunky, crunchy Granola. If you're also *that way* inclined (that way being a health conscious eater), you'll know how rammed full of sugar, hydrogenated oils and processed crap can be found in shop bought varieties.

Here's my clean, homemade version - it's sweet, crunchy, nutty, fruity and so filling... and ridiculously easy to make!! It's perfect food prep as you can make a huge batch, keep it in an airtight container and dip into it every day for a quick and easy breakfast.

This makes about 6 or 7 servings (depending on your portion size preference!)

You'll need....

100g organic oats
100g almonds
50g walnuts / pecans / cashews (whatever you fancy)
50g goji berries
100g raisins
30g chia seeds
50g pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons raw coconut oil
2 or 3 tablespoons 100% maple syrup (agave syrup or honey would work too).

Put the oven on 180. Wash your hands and place all the ingredients (except the coconut oil and the maple syrup), in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, rub in the coconut oil and pour the syrup over the oats and nuts - it's sticky and gooey (but secretly really fun!), and once you're happy that the mixture has been thoroughly mixed up and coated in oil, transfer to an oven dish and bake for fifteen minutes, until the granola is golden brown and crisp. You might want to take it out a couple of times and stir the mixture about...

It's lush with almond / soy milk, but equally as nice with Greek yoghurt, fresh blueberries and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
