Crunchy Quinoa Granola 

This granola is the perfect addition to any breakfast table. Brilliant for topping yogurt or porridge, this versatile recipe will leave you wondering why you ever brought store brought granola! This recipe contains lots of super fruits that will be sure to give your morning a boost. Even better? It’s refined sugar free, gluten free and vegan meaning (almost) everyone can enjoy this morning treat.

                             

The “mix ins” I've used here a purely a suggestion, why not go completely nutty by adding cashews, hazelnuts and peanuts? Or you could go tropical by using coconut flakes and dried mango, pineapple and banana chips.

 

Ingredients:

 

Base

Method

 

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius

  • Place the oats, agave nectar, peanut butter and coconut oil in a bowl. Mix together thoroughly, if you wish for a more clumpy granola, add an additional 2tbs of peanut butter to help hold the oats together in small ball shapes

  • Roughly chop the almonds and add these to the oat mixture

  • Place the granola mix on a large, lined baking sheet and level out till flat

  • Put the granola in the oven for 25 minutes, it is important to mix/ shake the granola tray every 10 minutes to prevent the edges burning
