Vegan Homemade Granola




I absolutely love granola for breakfast. I also believe that ready made granola options at the supermarket are not as great as they sound. The package may read vegan/ gluten free/ healthy but if  the granola tastes very sweet and sugary (which it usually does), I start doubting the ingredients. Plus when you can make your own delicious granola  at home within 15 minutes, why would you ever want to buy it from the supermarket?

For my homemade vegan granola you will need the following-

1 cup oats
1 table spoon maple syrup
1 table spoon coconut oil
Handful of almonds
Pumpkin seeds
A dash of cinnamon
Handful of raisins 

Place parchment paper or foil on a baking tray and throw in your oats and then sprinkle some cinnamon on it. Add maple syrup and then add melted coconut oil as well. Add almonds and any other nuts that you like to the mix. Give this a good whirl with a spoon, spatula or your good old fingers. Once mixed well, place the baking tray in a pre heated oven at about 150 degrees celsius. Bake the granola mix for about 10 minutes then add pumpkin seeds. Whirl everything once again and put it back in the oven to bake. After 5 minutes of baking add raisins. Once you have added raisins,  turn the oven off and let everything cook a bit more with the left over heat. 

After 5 minutes take everything out and voila your granola is ready. Once cooled off, the granola gets crunchy and you can eat it as is, or with milk or even better with yogurt and fruit! Either way, it tastes absolutely delicious. Let me know if you get to try this xx
