Store bought granola is often laden with hidden sugars and unhealthy fats. That is why Cara-Lisa always prefers to make her own at home.
"This recipe reminds me a little of coco-pops (if you are from SA you will definitely know this) as it turns your milk chocolate brown. I use many seeds in this recipe to ensure a great balance of healthy fats. Hope you love this one as much as I do!"
1 cup coconut pieces
1 cup oats
¼ cup cashew nuts
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup linseeds
¼ cup sultanas/goji berries/chopped dates
¼ cup coconut oil melted
4 tbsp. maple syrup/xylitol/raw honey
2/3 tbsp. cacao powder
Preheat oven to 180⁰C
Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine well
Line baking sheet with tray baking paper and cover with granola mix.
Bake in the oven for 25 – 30minutes until crisp but not burnt
Serve topped over ½ cup of unsweetened Coconut Cream
Store leftover granola in glass jar. Keeps for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
