Is there a healthier breakfast? Loaded with seeds and nuts, makes a wonderful beginning to a great day. And you can “personalize” it to your own liking.
As for some reason, most granolas available in shops are not gluten- free and gluten-free versions cost a little fortune, yet I refuse not to have it in my life, every week I make a big container of it. And today I am sharing with you the recipe I use, though, of course, you can use it as a base and add whatever seeds, nuts or dried fruit you like.
500 g rolled oats
60 g sunflower seeds
60 g pumpkin seeds
120 g sesame seeds
250 g nuts (almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and walnuts)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 grated apple
125 g honey
80 g brown sugar
2 tbsp sunflower oil
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 30 min in 170 °C, until brown.
I love to have it with my favorite yogurt for breakfast but it also makes a great snack when you get a craving during the day. And there’s one more serious perk- it fills a house with a wonderful smell of roasted nuts.
