Making your own Granola is fun, healthy and the smell whilst cooking is amazing… Here is a very simple recipe to provide the family with a great start to the day.
Homemade Granola with Organic Yogurt
Makes 4 servings
2 cups rolled organic oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried chopped dates
1/3 cup carob chips
4 cups organic vanilla yogurt
1. Preheat oven to 180c (325 degrees F) and line a baking sheet with baking (parchment) paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine oats, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, honey, brown sugar and vanilla. Drizzle the honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir well to combine.
3. Mix the pecans and sunflower seeds into the mixture. Spread mixture on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes depending on your taste preference or what we call “Crunch Factor”
4. Sprinkle raisins, dates and carob chips over granola and bake another 15 minutes. Let granola cool then crumble and spoon over yogurt.
As you can see in the photo, we omitted sprinkling with the raisins and dates but mixed these through before topping with the yogurt, shaved coconut and our special blueberries. Ready for Goats Milk…
