"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day"...
...and if you're anything like me then you'll need something mildly exciting to get you out of bed in the morning!
Homemade Breakfast Granola
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of wholemeal flower
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup of coconut oil
1/3 cup of honey
1/4 cup of apple juice or water
1 tsp of vanilla extract
(you can add 1/2 cup of cocoa powder if you're feeling really naughty!)
dried fruit (I use raisins) to add after cooking
Preheat oven to 150 degrees C / 325 degrees F
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Combine wet ingredients in a jug (you may need to pop the coconut oil into the microwave for 20seconds to melt it into a liquid for easier mixing).
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
Lightly grease a baking tray and spread the mixture evenly crumbling lightly with your fingers.
Cook for around 45 minutes checking at regular intervals, moving & turning the granola to avoid burning (the aroma wafting through your home at this point is amazing - enjoy it!)
Leave the granola out to cool before decanting it into a nice big jar.
By this point I can't resist pinching one to eat, but be careful not to burn your tongue in greedy anticipation... oops!
