coconut, vanilla & orange granola recipe

Granola is great for breakfast as you can vary it each day, serving with either yoghurt or kefir (fermented yoghurt with good bacteria) or use as a topping on porridge to add extra texture.

Ingredients

400g jumbo oats

120g sunflower or pumpkin seeds (or a blend)

40g flaked almonds

60g coconut chips

Juice from 1 x orange

4 tsp of cinnamon

2 tsp of vanilla extract

50ml of maple syrup or honey

50g coconut oil


Recipe


Pre-heat the oven to 140c (fan).


Heat the coconut oil and maple syrup/honey over a low heat until melted. Remove the pan from the heat and add the orange juice, cinnamon and vanilla.


Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and pour over the melted maple syrup/honey & coconut oil mixture.


Spread evenly on a lined baking tray and bake for 45-50 minutes (until golden). Stir the mixture every 5-10 minutes.


Remove from the oven and leave to cool.


Serve with yoghurt, kefir or sprinkle on top of overnight oats.



Enjoy! Michelle x
