About the Recipe
A lot of breakfast cereals contain added and refined sugars and extruded grains, which can mean starting the day with a processed, high sugar meal - spiking your blood sugars and insulin levels and potentially leave you feeling tired and hungry just a few hours later. This recipe is refined sugar free and uses wholegrains, nuts and seeds.
2.5c wholegrain oats
1/4c chia seeds
1/4c pumpkin seeds
1/4c raw buckwheat
2 handfuls of almonds
1c shredded coconut
2tsp cacao powder
1tsp vanilla extract
2tbsp brown rice malt syrup
3tbsp coconut oil
Heat your oven up to 160 degrees and line a baking tray with brown baking paper.
Spread all the dry ingredients out on the tray (mix them together with a fork).
Drizzle the brown rice syrup and vanilla over the top and then dot the coconut oil evenly on top.
Put the tray in the oven, then turn the oven off and leave the tray in the oven until the granola is completely cooled and crunchy.
Remove from the oven and store in a glass jar. Enjoy with your favourite milk and some berries on top.
