Yummy granola!

It’s not until I had kids that I started to really pay attention to nutritional information on labels, I always knew how to read them, but preferred to ignore and consume anyway.

I make my own now so I know exactly what’s going in their little tummies!

Yummy Granola

Ingredients

2 cups of oats (I use quick oats)

1 cup of coconut – either desiccated, shredded or flakes

½ cup of ground flaxseed or cocoa – (I use the Celebrate Health Flaxseed with Cocoa & Berries mix)

½ cup maple syrup

½ melted coconut oil

½ cup dried prunes, diced

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of frozen berries of your choosing

Nuts are optional too

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius/375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except the berries in large bowl, stir until well combine.
  3. Place of a lined tray and sprinkle the berries on top
  4. Bake for three 6 minute interval stirring each time to avoid clumps
  5. Let cool completley before placing in air tight container
  6. This will keep for about a week or so in the cupboard and yields about 3-4 cups
  7. Serve with your favourite yogurt (Nakula is my fave), milk or enjoy on its own.

Yields 12 generous servings, and costs around $1.25 (excluding nuts, I’m not a big fan!)
