Auntie Trish’s granola

Granola recipe
Auntie Trish’s Granola

I tried this super tasty recipe whilst on my travels in South Africa, and both myself and my 4 year old son are now addicted. Not only is this granola super tasty, it is also super healthy. These are just some of the benefits…and there are more…

Can improve skin and hair, can help lower cholesterol, high in Antioxidants (Lignans), supports digestive health, can help maintain hormonal balance…

You can always add a bit more honey, which does make it a bit stickier, but can be very yummy too!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 cup Lineseed
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/2 Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 cup Toasted Almonds (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup flavourless oil (sunflower/vegetable)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence (Optional)

METHOD

Preheat oven 160c (fan). Mix the oats and seeds, nuts (optional) and grains in a large bowl. Measure oil into the measuring cup and swirl it around before pouring it into the bowl. Then measure and pour the honey in the same used cup, the oil will stop the honey from sticking. Toss together, make sure ingredients are evening coated with the honey. Empty contents of bowl into a baking pan/tin. Bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven when the granola turns an even light gold colour.

Once cooked pour contents back into the mixing bowl and add the fruit, whilst hot. Keep stirring to prevent clumping.

All done! ENJOY.

I like to eat mine with Full Fat Greek Yoghurt, and like to add some fresh blackberries….how do you eat yours??
