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:
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.
