I’m forever stuck on the fact that when I set out to eat something, I’m trying to eat JUST that – with no extra ingredients I can’t even pronounce. You know what I’m saying?
We all have those days when we are just trying to get something to snack on while we figure out what exactly is going to be made for lunch, or dinner. ORRR, that walking-out-the-door staple Breffus! [For those who do not know, Breffus means Breakfast ] Whichever way, Granola is always a perfect idea – when it’s right without the refined sugars, anti-caking agents, color and all the carcinogenic (cancer causing) ingredients.
Plus it’s so easy to make, you’ll be amazed. One of the coolest things about this granola is, there really isn’t a set list of ingredients you need to make (traditional) granola. It’s literally whatever you have in your kitchen. Well… let me take that back for a minute. So long as you have your oats / shredded coconut (for low carbs), coconut oil, maple syrup/honey…. you’re good.Seriously. Add-ins like hemp/chia/pumpkin seeds,shredded coconuts, nuts, toasted buckwheat, make it nutrient dense and give your home such a sensational fragrance… like who needs air refreshers (in all their artificialness!!!) anyways???🙄
Make this, store in a tight-lid glass jar, snack on it all day or enjoy with some yogurt!! I literally had my granola jar in my right hand like some good wine. I don’t drink wine, but I can bet it tastes much better. You’ll thank me soon enough, trust me! 😌😉
2 cups of rolled (old-fashioned) oats1 cup (pre-)toasted buckwheat 1/2 cup chia seeds (work with what you have :))1/2 cup hemp seeds1/2 chopped nuts of choice. (this one had almonds)1/2 cup coconut oil1 tbsp of vanilla extract1/4 – 1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey 1 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300 degreesLine your baking sheet with foil paper or parchment paperIn a bowl, mix all your dry ingredients together. Fold in wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.Spread your mixture on the baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes.Stir occasionally until oats start to get crispy and golden brown. Remember once you take this out of the oven, it hardens some more so make sure it doesn’t wayyy toooo crispy before taking it out of the oven. Once it cools, store in a air-tight glass container (if it makes it in there😩)EN-JOY with a cup/glass of yogurt (which I absolutely LOVE!!) or raw!!!! and you seriously will!
