Vegan Granola with Nuts and Seeds

Vegan Granola with Nuts and Seeds

And here it is (drum roll please)... Vegan granola! 

Breakfast is said to be one of the most important meals of the day. But breakfast time can also be one of the most stressful times of the day. Most of us don't have the luxury of slow, easy going mornings. You may have a tribe of little ones running around, you may have to be at work really early in the mornings, or perhaps you enjoy hitting the snooze button on your alarm and ultimately end up being late for everything (don't worry, we all enjoy a good snooze button). 

Whatever the reason, many of us will skip breakfast due to a lack of time. But I am so excited to bring you this super simple, super easy recipe for my Vegan Granola. You won't ever have to skip breakfast again. 

To make this Vegan granola you will need 15 minutes and 9 easily to find ingredients. You may also want to have some storage containers handy if you are making a bigger batch to put your roasted granola into.

To start this recipe off we add almonds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts. These nuts and seeds are highly nutritious, adding healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, and Omega-3 (just to name a few)! Nuts and seeds are not only good for you but also help to keep you feeling fuller for longer as they are good sources of fibre. 

We then top it off with some coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut flakes, vanilla extract, and some dried cherries. These toppings bring a host of flavours to the mix, but also have some great health benefits like natural healthy fats and antioxidants. 

Vegan granola with nuts and seeds is the perfect breakfast meal or snack for throughout the day because it's: 

  • A good source of protein 9g per serve! 
  • Packed with wholesome, natural ingredients (minus the syrup).
  • Healthy and great tasting! 
  • Travel-friendly.
  • Easy to make.

One thing I really like about this recipe is it stores very well! So if you are a 'meal-prep' sort of person, a busy mum/dad, or just really want to make your mornings stress free, this recipe will be perfect. You can easily store your finished granola in an airtight container for up to one week (7 days).

And that's it! I really hope you enjoy this vegan granola (I know I do!). Don't be afraid to try adding different fruits and/or berries to change up the flavor. Just be sure to take notice of your fruits as some will not store well. I suggest going for dried fruits only. However, you may wish to add fresh fruits to your granola of a morning. Please remember to let us know if you do! I love being inspired by others.
