every weekend i try to make a big jar of granola, in an attempt to make it easier on myself to provide a decent breakfast on those early weekday mornings. the granola is served with unsweetened almond milk. most often a store bought one like almond breeze, but sometimes i make it myself. no doubt the home-squeezed one is the best in any way. to the granola and milk, we usually add berries of some kind. if we have fresh berries it is often blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or blackberries. but we also use little apple cubes, figs and frozen sliced strawberries or raspberries. adding dried fruit is also yummy. some of our dried favourites are mulberries, raisins and raspberries.
the granola itself is very simple and using the foodprocessor it takes only 10 minutes all included.
basically you can use whatever kind of nuts and seeds and dried fruits you have. you can also add shredded coconut if you like.
this granola mix last for about 5 days at our house (counting 5 people), is very nutritious, tastes yummy and is very simple – what more can you ask for when it comes to breakfast on weekdays?
what you need:
100g sunflower seeds
75g pumpkin seeds
200g rolled oats*
3-4 tbsp. raw honey
1. pulse the almonds a little in the food processor.
2. add everything but the oats. pulse again.
3. melt the honey completely on a medium heated pan.
4. add all the dry ingredients and mix with the honey for 2-3 minutes.
5. let it cool down in the pan and store in glass jars.
* make sure to get gluten-free oat if you want it gluten-free.1
