I have a fairly important public announcement to make: this girl is back in the kitchen! Lately, I’ve found my groove back and started to experiment in my new kitchen a bit. I’ve always loved trying out new recipes, baking cakes and prepare my own lunch/dinner. Somehow, however, I fell out of love with being in the kitchen due to a rather shitty kitchen situation in my old flat. I am back, though, and have brought this incredible homemade granola recipe with me. As the banana bread update has been such a hit, I thought I’d get back into experimenting with food posts a bit.
So here’s the recipe for my healthy homemade granola
Honestly, this recipe is no secret. It’s a no-brainer for most of us and has been covered by almost any blogger out there. I still thought I’d share my take on it. For the sake of completion – if everyone does it, I must do it too. Joke aside. I do really think this recipe should be a staple for everyone. Making granola at home is so easy and makes such a difference in nutrition when compared to the sugar-loaded ones you can buy in stores.
This homemade granola takes only about 20 minutes to make, is super easy to adapt to whatever you have in storage and will fancy up every yogurt, smoothie bowl, and the likes. So here’s how it goes…
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup chia seeds
- 1,5 cups burcha mix (I make mine after this recipe)
- a handful of nuts (love me some almonds and cashews)
- 2 tbsp honey or agave syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- cinnamon and a bit of salt
- additional: coconut flakes, dried fruit
How to make the homemade granola:
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius
- In a big bowl mix all dry ingredients and spread on a baking sheet
- Place it in the oven for about 5 minutes
- In the meantime mix your wet ingredients in the bowl you used before. I like to mash my honey and coconut oil with the spices I’m using on my granola in this step
- Now take the pre-cooked mix out of the oven. Mix with the wet ingredients and place back on your baking sheet in an even layer
- Bake for about 8-10 minutes but keep an eye on the granola while it’s in the oven as it burns easily. It should be lightly toasted as on the pictures when its done
- Mix in dried fruit, coconut flakes, and your other toppings. Let cool down and fill up to store.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it from whatever you have at home and it costs next to nothing. Just mix all your nuts, seeds and oats and add coconut oil and some sweatener to bake. Easy as that! No fuss – no dirty dishes. Love it!
Psst.. I’ll let you in on a secret too. I had already published this recipe way back when I first created this blog. I could have updated it but decided not too – I wouldn’t have the cringe-y posts anymore then, would I :D
