There is nothing quite like trying to whip up a smoothie or cook eggs on toast in the morning rush as you get ready to start the day. Let’s be honest, who has the time? Granola is my quick go to for a summer breakfast option. It is packed with fibre, protein, essential carbohydrates, healthy fats, and delicious flavours. This will make enough granola for a couple of weeks.
7 cups oats
1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/2 cup cashews
1 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 – 3/4 cup rice malt syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, salt
3/4 cup cranberries
Turn oven onto 180 degrees celsius. Mix all ingredients, except the cranberries, in a large bowl till combined and pour onto two large trays lined with baking paper.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until mixture is lightly golden, making sure to stir once or twice while cooking. Remove from oven and scatter the cranberries over the mixture.
Once cooked allow to cool before storing in an airtight container.
I like to top mine with banana and milk, but feel free to add whatever you like: yoghurt, mixed berries, peach, coconut, honey. xx
