Granola recipe

I have been going all gourmet lately and having this sprinkled on my fruit and yoghurt, today was mango but it's usually blueberries or sometimes nectarines. When I first started having this for breaky as part of my sugar quitting program I would have it as a straight cereal, but now mix it up with my one serve of fruit for the day.

My Crunchy Granola recipe

3 cups raw almonds
1 cup cashews
1 cup macadamias
2 cups oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup pepitas
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chia
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup macadamia oil

Place all your nuts in a food processor and pulse until chopped into small pieces. Add this mixture to oats, coconut, seeds and chia and mix well. Add syrup and oil and stir really well until all dry ingredients are coated.

Spread this mix over 2 baking trays lined with baking paper and bake in oven a 160C for appox 25 mins. Keep an eye on the granola, once it's a nice and golden brown whip it out and leave to cool on the trays.

Now, like anything you can mix and match. I first started making this with no oats at all, but it was too rich for the rest of the family, so I added them in. It is a super filling start to the day and should keep you going through 'til lunch if you eat on its own.
