HOMEMADE GRANOLA

HOMEMADE GRANOLA

Packed with nutritious nuts and dried fruit, this homemade granola is a great way to start the day, and it’s a healthier alternative to the highly processed, high-sugar cereals you can buy. It is really sustaining too, so you only need a small amount, with a generous dollop of yoghurt and some fresh fruit, for a perfectly balanced breakfast.

300g rolled oats

100g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower & sesame)

4 tbsp coconut oil

125ml maple syrup

50ml honey

2 tablespoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon ground cardamom
