Granola is one of those things that are very easy to make but I hardly ever make. I guess I was waiting to find the perfect (and easiest) recipe. This one here is delicious and so simple to make, give it a try. It’s packed with nuts and seeds, which provide you with so many nutrients such as various vitamins, minerals as well as fibre, plant protein and healthy fats.
Here I used the Nutmad salted maple walnuts, which are lightly salted, just enough to enhance the sweetness of the granola.
Ingredients (4 servings):
150 gr of pure oats
1 tsp of flaxseeds
2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
100 gr of Activated Walnuts
20 gr of coconut chips
1 tbsp of peanut butter
20 ml of coconut oil
1 tbsp of maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 180C. Add peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup into a pan and heat up until well mixed
Place the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and pour in the maple mix
Stir nicely until everything is well covered with the mix and transfer onto a baking tray.
Cook in a preheated oven, for about 30 minutes stirring it every 10 minutes so it gets colored evenly.
Serve the granola with your favourite yoghurt and a handful of seasonal fruit.
The recipe is vegan-friendly and contains no refined sugar, which is always very important to me. Its sweetness comes from the maple syrup, one of my favourite natural sweeteners, and the coconut chips. Keep the granola in an airtight container so it keeps its crunchiness.
Batch cooking really does make life easier and this maple and walnut granola is a great example. Make a bigger batch and you’ll be able to spend more time enjoying your breakfast in the morning than preparing it.
