Recipe: Honey Granola

bowl-2

For the last few weeks I’ve been experimenting with making my own granola. I was actually surprised by how easy and quick you could make a batch of granola. Not only the taste is far better than the ones they have in the supermarket but it’s also much cheaper if you make it yourself. So far my favourite one is honey granola made out of oats, almonds, pecan nuts, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes. Here’s what you’ll need for a small batch (around 3-4 servings):

  • 2 table spoons of coconut oil
  • around 200 grams of oats/rolled oats
  • a handful of almonds
  • a handful of pecan nuts
  • a handful of pumpkin seeds
  • two handful of coconut flakes
  • two/three table spoons of honey

ingredientsclose-up-ingredientsPreheat the oven to 175 degrees C/ 350 degrees F. Put around 200 grams of oats in a bowl and melt two tablespoons of coconut oil in a sauce pan. When the coconut oil turns fluid pour it over the oats while stirring it.

Chop up the almonds and pecan nuts and add them to the bowl. Add a handful of pumpkin seeds and two handful of coconut flakes. Pour two to three table spoons of fluid honey on top and mix everything well. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and put in the oven for at least 20-25 minutes. Stir the mixture lightly every 10 minutes. As every oven tends to be a little bit different, your granola will be ready when it turns golden.

Let it cool completely before you store it into a jar. Off course you can make a bowl straight away so that the granola will still be warm (+ very delicious!). I like to stir a drop of honey into my yoghurt first and then add the granola plus some fruit.

I hope you will love this recipe as much as I do, so please let me know when you tried it! A big plus of making this recipe is the incredible smell that will fill up your house.   bowl-1
