Start your day with some crunch
If you like to live a healthy lifestyle, then you may enjoy sprinkling granola on your yoghurt for breakfast in the morning, to fill you up for the day ahead. With oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruit, it has the carbohydrates and proteins to give you a balanced breakfast to start the day.

After buying granola at the supermarket and watching the price go up, I decided to make my own at home, for a fraction of the price. This recipe below is the perfect balance of flavours as it has some sweetness (for my sweet tooth!), but also some crunch and coconut, which matches perfectly with the creamy yoghurt. I am also trying to add more Omega 3 to my diet, for a healthy heart and joints, so this recipe also adds chia seeds if you have them on hand. This colourful combo is the perfect way to start the day!

Start your day with some crunch!


Ingredients:

2 cups oats
1 cup nuts/ seeds/ dried fruit of your choice (I used walnuts, sunflower seeds and cranberries)

What To Do:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 degrees, fan-forced. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients - oats, nut mixture, desiccated coconut and chia seeds.

Step 3: Add the wet ingredients to the bowl - olive oil, vanilla essence and maple syrup. Stir to combine.

Step 4: Spread the mixture out onto the oven tray and bake for 5 minutes.

Step 5: Pull out the tray, give it a stir and bake for another 10 minutes, until golden.

Bake for 5 minutes, stir, then bake for a further 10 minutes until golden


Step 6: Allow to completely cool in the tray, to give the granola time to harden and clump together. Use a spatula to lift up the granola and pour into a sealed container. Sprinkle over yoghurt when needed.

This granola is sweet, delicious and flavoursome over yoghurt, topped with blueberries and fresh fruits. This recipe is so tasty, that I have given it as hand-made gifts in small Moccona jars at Christmas time, for friends who like to be healthy.

Why don't you make some for yourself, or friends, this weekend?

Oh yummo! Thanks Sue. This will be a great one to try. I'm trying to be super healthy, despite Halloween treats and Christmas sweets!
