Seedy Granola makes a lot!
Granola is so easy to make and can be tailor-made to your tastes.
This granola came about as a friend was asking me for my granola recipe. She is having to cut out refined sugar from her diet and said that my granola contained too much sugar. This one is refined sugar free and full of the goodness of seeds, nuts and oats. Give it a try and see what you think.
250g rolled oats
150g unsweetened apple sauce
40g milled seed mix
35g pumpkin seeds
20g milled flaxseed
20 hemp seeds
20g chia seeds
1/2 tsp mixed spice
75g coconut oil, melted
100g whole nuts (I used almonds and hazelnuts)
50g agave syrup
50g coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with parchment.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients, except for the raisins and coconut flakes. Make sure the mixture is really well mixed.
Pour the mixture onto the lined baking tray and flatten with the back of a spoon.
Put in the oven for 40-45 mins BUT turn the mixture every 15 mins, to ensure that it doesn't burn.
The mixture is ready when it is a light golden brown.
Leave it to cool in the tray and then break it up with your hands, leaving some large clusters and finally adding the raisins and coconut flakes.
I eat this with greek yogurt and fresh berries, for a fabulous start to the day.
