What Is Granola
Granola is a breakfast item consisting of rolled oats normally mixed with a sweetener like say honey or a syrup and normally nuts. This mix is then slowly baked in the oven making it crunchy. And that is where the fun begins as once its baked and cooled you can add whatever you like to it. For us we like to make a healthy granola recipe but it doesn’t always have to be that way.
Our Favourite Breakfast
If your like us and you like a nice crunchy granola in the morning then look no further than this lovely homemade healthy granola recipe. Even better we have added no sugars making it a much better and healthier alternate.
You would find a lot of store bought ones would be very sweet and have high sugar contents. This one surely doesn’t we use rice malt syrup and use the natural sweetness of the dried fruits to gently sweeten the granola without adding any sugar at all.
This is just a base recipe add to it what you like. we like like to simply add fresh strawberries, blueberries and Greek natural yoghurt. But the choices are endless , try different fruits and combinations and find the best ones.
The granola will last 4-5 weeks if keep correctly in an airtight container and away from sunlight. preferably in a pantry or cupboard.
