Healthy Granola Recipe
Updated: Apr 21
If you are looking for quick and easy recipes for breakfast or snacks, using granola is a great way to start. Granola can be used in many different ways. From eating just like that for a snack or use it for cereal.
There are 8 components that I believe to make a great granola recipe.
Base (Grain): Oat or Rice Puff
Seed: Sunflower, pumpkin, flaxseed, chia seed.
Nut: Almond, Pecan, Walnut, cashew, or even hazelnut.
Dried Fruit: Gogi Berry, Freeze-dried fruit, coconut flake
Oil: Coconut oil, Canola oil, or any other neutral flavor oil. (I love using coconut oil for more health benefit but any other oil works well.)
Sweetener: Pure Maple Syrup, Mashed banana, agave syrup or any wet sweetener.
Flavor(Optional): Vanilla extract, cocoa powder, cinnamon or any spices.
Something extra: Chia seed, Flaxseed, or anything that will add extra nutrition value.
1 Cup of Oat
1/2 Cup of nut (Chopped)
1/4 Cup of Raisin
1/4 Cup of Coconut flakes
1 Tablespoon of Coconut oil
1/4 Cup of Maple syrup
2 Teaspoon of Coconut sugar
1 Tablespoon of Chia seed
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In the large bowl, whisk together oil , maple syrup, and coconut sugar.
Add in oat, chopped nut, pinch of salt and chia seed.
Stir everything all together until everything is coated
Place the granola into a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread it out evenly.
Baking for 8-10 minutes and stir in the optional of coconut flake and raisin before putting it back in the oven to be bake it for another 8-10 more minutes.
The granola should be golden brown and crispy.
