Homemade granola

Eat Canberra

HOMEMADE GRANOLA // I had a craving for granola this morning and was going to head out and find some BUT I had everything I needed in the cupboard so I made it instead. So yummy, so delicious and there are so many things you can do with it! 

You need:
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup pure maple syrup 
2 tbsp vegetable oil (could substitute for coconut oil)
1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown rice puffs
2 cups oats
1/2 cup organic quinoa flakes
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup coconut (whatever you have in the cupboard)
1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice (I used a combo of pistachio and cashew nuts)
1/2 cups dried fruit (optional I didn’t add any)
If you don’t have quinoa flakes or puffed rice just use oats. I just used them because they were in the cupboard

What now?

1. Heat oven to 150C/fan or 130C/gas. Mix the honey, maple syrup, oil, vanilla paste and cinnamon in a big bowl until well combined.
2. Add all of the ingredients except the coconut and dried fruit (if using) and mix until well combined with wet ingredients.
3. Line two trays with baking paper and divide the mixture between the two trays. Spread evenly and bake for 15 minutes then mix in the coconut and dried fruit and bake for a further 15mins. Keep your eye on it so you don’t over cook it.
4. Tip the granola onto another tray to cool. Use how you want! I’m going to use mine for my acai bowls! Store in an airtight container for upto a month.
