Weekend Granola Recipe

Posted by Ben Simpkins on March 27, 2017

This is perfect in the morning either by itself or sprinkled on top of some yoghurt and includes some fantastic flavours, obviously, you can pick and choose the nuts, seeds and fruit included but we like this mix. The main part of this you need to make the base of the granola is the oats, maple syrup and coconut oil. From there you can get creative.

3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of slice almonds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
2tsp chia seeds
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup maple syrup
1/3rd cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp cinnamon

Extra toppings
½ cup bee pollen
½ cup cocoa nibs

-Pre heat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit and place all the oats, seeds, nuts and vanilla seeds into a big mixing bowl, combine well, do not add the cranberries at this stage.
-Add the oil and syrup, mix together once again until everything has combined
-Line a baking tray with baking paper and scoop the mixture onto the tray, lay it out as flat as possible
-Cook for 12 minutes or until golden brown
-Allow to cool down for around 30 minutes then break it up and place it in another bowl. Now add in the cranberries along with the nibs and bee pollen if you are using them too
– Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks and enjoy
