Shake up your wake up with some homemade granola. Here’s my delish recipe, plus two gorgeous ways to serve it.
Start your day right with a nutritious breakfast. Eating a healthy meal within the first two hours of waking boosts your energy levels and metabolism. Many studies have shown how eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration as well as lower stress levels; therefore making us happier.
Why not try granola for your breakfast? My tried and tested recipe bakes the best cereal I’ve ever tasted. Scrumptiously cinnamon-y, oat-ally crumbly, devilishly moreish. Pinched off the tray when it’s fresh out of the oven, crunched for breakfast or handfuls from the jar pre workout; whenever I bake a batch of granola, its devoured!
So if you can’t make it to mine for breakfast, here’s the quick and tasty recipe for you to bake your own…
Feel-Good Flora’s Granola
Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cooking Time: 10 Minutes
3 tbsps of coconut oil
2 tbsps of honey
2 cups of organic oats
½ cup of raisins
½ cup of sunflower seeds
½ cup of chopped mixed nuts
½ tbsp of cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
HEAT the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas mark 5.
PREP a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper.
MELT the coconut oil and honey in a mixing bowl.
MIX oats, raisins, sunflower seeds, mixed nuts, cinnamon and salt into the melted coconut oil and honey.
SQUIDGE together with your hands so all ingredients are evenly distributed, and then carefully lay onto the baking tray.
CLUSTERS are the best bit, so try to create these by squeezing the mix into balls.
SPRINKLE over even more cinnamon if you’re a cinnamon fiend like me!
BAKE for 10 minutes, or until its golden. Don’t let it burn!
COOL on a tray. It’ll crisp up.
STORE in an airtight jar for up to a week.
Serving Suggestion One – Granola In A Glass
Layer up yogurt, granola, peanut butter, honey and fresh raspberries.
Serving Suggestion Two – Pretty Smoothie Bowl
Whizz up a raspberry smoothie and decorate with sprinkles of granola, desiccated coconut and bee pollen.
Eat good, feel good.
