Easy Healthy Homemade Granola

Updated: Feb 28, 2019


Happy Sunday!


For me, Sunday is always about relaxing and finding time for doing the things that make me feel happy- and baking always makes me feel happy, as I'm sure it does for a lot of people!


So I thought that I would share one of my favourite granola recipes with you! This basic granola recipe makes about three cups of granola (half a cup is typically one serving).


Why is this granola recipe so good I hear you ask?


* healthy * easy to make * quick to bake: 10 minutes * 6 ingredients * tastes pretty good (if I do say so myself). * it's vegan & gluten-free (so everyone can enjoy it!)

Best served with cold milk (or milk alternative), yoghurt (dairy/non-dairy), on top of a smoothie or eaten on it's own as a convenient (and tasty) snack.


I hope that you enjoy the recipe and have a lovely Sunday!

OVERVIEW:


Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Difficulty: easy

Servings: 6

Oven temp: 150 °C


INGREDIENTS:


2 tbsp olive oil or other neutral oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

pinch of salt

0.5 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups or 160 g gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup or 45 g chopped nuts (I used walnuts)

1/2 cup or 73 g dried chopped fruit (I used raisins)

1/4 cup or 33.8 g sunflower or pumpkin seeds


INSTRUCTIONS:


1. Heat the oven to 150 °C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Set aside.


2. Place the oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a bowl and stir to combine.


3. Add the oats, nuts & seeds to the bowl and stir well (don't worry if you add a little more).


4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet and spread out into an even layer.


5. Bake for 10 minutes*, stirring halfway through. The granola is ready when golden-brown. The mixture may still feel wet when coming out of the oven but will dry as it cools.


6. Remove from oven and place the baking sheet on a wire rack. Add the fruit.


7. Once cool, transfer the granola to an airtight container and store at room temperature.


RECIPE NOTES:


Granola can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 month.


Homemade granola will taste burnt quite quickly if you overcook it, so keep it at a low temperature just for 10 minutes to let it come together.
