Good morning, beauties! This week I have an amazing recipe for you! It is so incredibly tasty that after making this I literally ended up having this for breakfast, lunch and dinner one day! The recipe is very versatile, and can be eaten plain as snack, or together with nut-milk, soy-milk, soy yogurt, coconut yogurt, chocolate chia pudding or chocolate avocado pudding. The only thing limiting you is your own imagination!
This granola is packed with all kinds of healthy ingredients, making sure you get the best start possible to your day. There really is nothing better than starting the day eating clean and energy-packed food. Your body wakes up to a new beginning, ready to serve you in every way if given the right fuel. A healthy morning increases the chances of more healthy choices throughout the day, so keep it simple and delicious!
The recipe is fairly easy to make. Blending everything together might take about 15 minutes, but you have to set aside some time to stay close to the oven. The time it takes is totally worth it though, because I can guarantee that you will love this recipe! Also, the granola is perfect as a gift! I made it as christmas gifts for my siblings last year, and they absolutely loved it! Not all gifts have to be expensive – in my opinion, the best ones are the gifts given thought, time and love!
6 1/4 cups (1,5 liter) oats
1 3/4 cups (4 dl) almonds
3/4 cup (1,5 dl) sunflower seeds
1/2 cup (1 dl) pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup (1,5 dl) sesame seeds
1 cup (2,5 dl) dried shredded coconut
1 1/4 (3 dl) raisins
1 cup (2,5 dl) cranberries
100 grams dates
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
4/5 cup (2 dl) fresh apple juice
Preheat the oven to 180oC Blend all the dry ingredients in a big bowl. Blend the wet ingredients separately, using a food processor. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and blend everything using your hands. Make sure that all the dry ingredients are moist when you are finished. Spread the mixture on a baking tray (you don´t have to cover it with oil or baking paper). Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 1,5 hour. Make sure you blend the mixture around on the tray every 15 minutes or so, using a large spoon. The blend might be a little moist when you take it out of the oven, but if you let it cool completely it will turn out crisp and delish.
