Healthy rolled oats granola

Do not skip breakfast! I think most of us know by now that skipping breakfast is bad for you. Chances are you’ll eat more later in the day and chances are you’ll eat something unhealthy. In this article I show you how easy it is to make your own granola.

I have learned to really look forward to eating breakfast and I take my time. I have breakfast every morning, usually not until I get to work. That way I don’t rush it and can take my time to eat breakfast like I do any other meal.

Most mornings I eat granola and this is always my own, homemade granola. Not just because it is much healthier, but it tastes so much better too. I usually add some fresh fruit to it, such as an apple or a banana, to get my fruit-fix early on. I mix the fruit and the granola with soy or almond yoghurt which I love. Here in the Netherlands I always buy Provamel yoghurt as it’s unsweetened. I get it at my local organic supermarket. I am not against sugar at all, but I don’t like yoghurt that’s too sweet.

The recipe below is for my current favourite oats-granola which is very easy to make and really healthy. Because of the oats you will feel full for hours which means the time between breakfast and lunch won’t seem endless ;-). Plus, I really don’t like oatmeal, but rolled oats in a granola mixture are great. Recipe below.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the water with the vanilla essence. Place the rolled oats on a baking tray with a baking sheet and sprinkle it with the water mixture and some cinnamon. Place the tray in a pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.
  3. While the oats are in the oven, mix the seeds in a large bowl with the coconut. If you like you can also add some dried fruit, but I am not a big fan of that.
  4. Once the oats are done, leave them to cool for a few minutes and sprinkle them with a little bit of sea salt. Then, put them in the bowl with the seeds and coconut and mix well.
Recipe Notes

I usually don’t weigh anything for this recipe so the measurements are estimates. I use a whole bag of rolled oats (500 grams) and then add the seeds and coconut until I think it’s enough.
