Let’s talk granola.
You have probably heard of it. In fact, I would be very shocked if you hadn’t! It’s everywhere and it comes in just about every flavor. And for a good reason. Granola is amazing! And vegan friendly… well most of them anyway.
So how can you tell if it is truly vegan and good for your body? The easiest way – make it yourself. I usually avoid buying pre-made packaged items because I’m a bit of a control freak. I want to know what’s going into my food. While I can’t control that completely, I can do my best and make as much as I can myself. And so can you.
Granola is extremely easy to make and requires very little effort. It’s also very adaptable. You can put anything you want in it. One of my favorite things to do is grab a few mason jars, line them up, and make several different types of granola. I store these in the cupboard and simply grab whatever one I fancy that morning. Be warned though, some mornings it can be hard to choose between so many amazing flavors! Make sure to check out the other recipes I have down the bottom of the page.
To make this recipe, you will need 12 ingredients and 15 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than this.
We start this recipe off with almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, oats, and chocolate chips. Together, these ingredients provide us with a good source of protein, fiber, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, ‘healthy fats,’ omega-3, and iron.
We then add in coconut oil, cinnamon, maple syrup, goji berries, and raisins. This offers us an additional source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, as well as vitamin A, calcium, selenium, and a range of vitamin B’s. Top this off with some almond milk and you have yourself a winner!
Chocolate granola with nuts, seeds, and berries is the perfect breakfast or snack because it’s:
Storing your granola is really simple. Choose any sort of airtight container with a lid, place your granola inside, and store for up to 2 months.
PLEASE NOTE: When cooking your granola, it is essential that you keep an eye on the oven. Granola can burn very quickly, going from golden goodness to burnt nastiness in the blink of an eye. Ovens vary in their settings and temperatures, so I suggest paying close attention in this recipe.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! See you next time.
