Leave the packet granola at the store and whip up your own healthy homemade granola in 20 minutes! So delicious you’ll wonder why it took you so long to give it a try!
It’s Super Bowl Sunday (or Monday if you are in Australia)! So here’s a healthy homemade granola recipe that has nothing to do with game food LOL! Admittedly I had this granola on the calendar long before I realised Super Bowl would fall on the same day. And I already have some delicious recipes on the blog that could be used to feed a football crowd, like:
So this healthy homemade granola is going up regardless! Besides, we all need a delicious breakfast no matter what day it is!
Who’s going to be watching the game today? Adam is a huge NFL fan (even though we are Aussies!) so we certainly will be! I think we are going to go for the Philadelphia Eagles – who doesn’t love an underdog? But it’s hard not to cheer for the Pats too!
I was reminiscing this morning about how lucky we were to attend Super Bowl 50 in San Fransisco a few years back. It is one of those experiences I’ll never forget! The crowd was amazing, and the energy of the stadium was just so uplifting. Plus it didn’t hurt that we got to see Beyonce, Bruno Mars & Coldplay at half time!
Now that’s enough about football – let’s talk business. Granola business. If you haven’t tried making your own granola I’m here to tell you that it’s so easy you’ll never want to buy it from the store again.
It takes all of 20 minutes to prep and cook, and in the end you get a huge batch of deliciously healthy granola with no added nasties!
Here’s what you need to do:
Healthy Homemade Granola
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup sliced natural almonds
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 150C/300F
- Mix all ingredients together aside from the coconut in a large bowl. Use your hands - sure it's sticky & a little messy but it gets the job done!
- Cover a tray with baking paper and spread mixture into a thin layer on top.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then sprinkle the coconut on top and bake for another 5 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and leave on tray to cool fully before using.
- Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks (if it lasts that long!).
- Feel free to sub almonds for another nut.
- You could easily add some dried fruit into the mix too to add some more flavour. I personally prefer to add fresh fruit on top however I serve it!
- Nutritional information is for one serve.
