Wintry Granola

Recently I have been craving some granola for breakfast, so I thought I would try and make a spiced wintry version. I haven’t ever made granola before but I managed to nail it on the first attempt. It’s brilliant for breakfast or even a mid afternoon snack. Just store it in an airtight container and you have enough to last the week.

5-8 portions

Prep: 5 mins

Cooking: 30 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups GF oats
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 apple (chopped into small pieces)

Method:

Pre heat the oven to 180C.

Firstly you need to pulse the almond and walnuts in a blender for about 10 seconds until roughly crushed.

Now place the almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple into a mixing bowl and mix.

Once all the dry ingredients are mixed together melt the coconut oil in a microwave (40-50 seconds). Stir the maple syrup into the melted coconut oil and pour over the dry ingredients.

Mix all these together thoroughly until evenly covered.
