Recipe: Simple nut granola

I love oven-baked rolled oats, especially in granola. If you mix the rolled oats with nuts and seeds you really have the mother-of-all-granola’s. In this article I show you how to make your own granola.

Homemade healthy granola is very easy to make. A few weeks ago I posted a recipe for rolled oats granola. I try to start every day with oats, because it’s so healthy, but I really don’t like oatmeal in the warm, porridge form. I don’t like the ‘overnight oats’ trend either. Oven-baked oats is different; I love it. Especially in combination with nuts and seeds. It’s delicious, healthy and you will feel full for hours. And no, nuts won’t make you fat. I’m the living proof! Ok, if you want to lose weight you may need to watch your nut-intake, but the fats in (raw) nuts are healthy fats which have been found to reduce cholesterol and protect against heart disease ¹, ². SO EAT THEM. Another recipe for homemade cereal that’s easy and healthy!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Put the cashews and almonds in a food processor and blend for a few seconds until they’ve broken into large chunks.
  3. Mix the nuts in a large bowl with the rolled oats.
  4. Put some parchment paper on a baking tray and put the nuts-oats mixture on it.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the melted coconut oil with the water and vanilla essence. Pour the liquid over the nuts/rolled oats.
  6. Add some cinnamon to the nuts/oats and put the mixture into the oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. In another bowl, mix the pumpkin- with the sunflowerseeds. Add flaxseeds until evenly mixed with the other seeds. Set aside; these don’t need to be roasted in the oven.
  8. After 20 minutes, remove the baking tray with the nuts/oats from the oven and sprinkle with some sea salt. Leave to cool.
  9. Mix the oats/nuts with the seeds.
  10. Your nut granola is now done. It will stay good for weeks if you keep it in an airtight glass jar. I love to add grated coconut to the granola and fresh fruit, but you can also add dried fruit. It’s good with both (soy) yoghurt and milk.
Recipe Notes

You can choose not to roast the nuts with the oats; they will be a little less crunchy but making the granola won't take as much time. Simply roast the rolled oats, leave to cool, and mix with the nuts and seeds.
