Happy 2014! hope this will be a healthy and happy New Year for you all.
Thought I would have a go at a no sugar Granola recipe for a healthy breakfast choice for the New Year, hopefully you will like it too.
100g Hazelnuts ( you could use any selection of nuts )
150g desiccated coconut
150g gluten free oats
handful of chia seeds
handful of pumpkin seeds
handful of sunflower seeds
2 tsp of ground cinnamon
200ml of melted coconut oil
Use food processor for nuts, don’t make them to fine better left coarse.
mix nuts, seeds, oats and desiccated coconut together
add cinnamon, mix well.
Melt coconut oil, use a glass jug to put the coconut oil in and stand in saucepan of boiling water.
pour melted oil into nuts etc stir well.
grease two baking trays with coconut oil
bake in hot oven 180c for 9 mins stir then back in the oven for a further 9 mins until becoming a lovely golden brown.
cool and store in airtight container
serve with fresh berries and plain full fat greek yoghurt, best to avoid dried fruits as they are higher in sugar.
sometimes I use double cream and use as a healthy pudding.
