Granola with Almonds, Walnuts, Cranberries and Goji Berries

Granola with Almonds, Walnuts, Cranberries and Goji Berries

Are you ready to make some great tasting Almonds, Walnuts, Cranberries, and Goji Berries Granola? Of course, you are! This vegan granola is gluten-free and not to mention, it's absolutely delicious and made from nutritious ingredients, that you'll never have to buy preservative and chemical-filled store versions again.

Believe it or not, I made a promise to myself that I was going to eat less grains and sugar this year. However, I am on a mission to show you that eating healthy can be fun, taste absolutely delicious, and be disguised as indulgent.

Take for instance, this 10-minute granola that requires like 10 ingredients. There are like - 2 things that I consider to be like my favourite things in the entire world and they are almonds and walnuts. Add them to your granola mixture and turn it into a wonderful healthy snack.

Whenever, I make granola, I make batches of them so that I can take them as snacks when I’m out.

Talk about a great recipe that's loaded with healthy fats, omega 3s, and protein from the nuts and seeds. Not to mention the fact that it's even sweetened with maple syrup. Add a little olive oil for a crisp taste that won't interfere with it's flavour either.

This granola is highly nutrient rich; it contains 15g of protein and 8g of fibre per serving;  

I must confess... this granola has been my favourite since the first time I made it. It's: 

  • Crunchy;
  • Easy; 
  • Fast;
  • Nutty;
  • Pleasing;
  • Utterly sweet;
  • Wholesome;

The thing I like about this granola... is the fact that it can be eaten any time of the day. Not only, do I like eating it in the car for a snack – I like adding it to my bran flakes when eating breakfast because of it's protein content, as well as eating it with some dairy-free yogurt. However, you can eat it any way you like.

I also love this granola because you can customise it and use whatever type of nuts and/or seeds that you have on hand and make it your very own. I felt like I hit the lottery the other day at my local Farmer's Market... when I found some Cranberries, and Goji Berries, but I think it'd be great tasting with cherries and blueberries also.

If you'd rather have your granola in big clusters... this can be achieved by spreading the granola in a single, even layer on your baking sheets and not stirring it while it's baking. That way, it bakes as a solid piece that you can break into clusters after it cools. Your granola can be stored for about a week in an airtight container.
