Granola

I don't know about you but I am quite partial to a good granola in the morning or afternoon. The trouble is most granolas (even the 'paleo' ones) are pretty high in sugar. Even worse, it seems you have to sell a kidney to afford them. It is so easy to make your own. A standard batch makes 24 1/4 cup serves so will last ageeesss. I store mine in the freezer so the nuts remain fresh. 

Makes 6 cups

  • 2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups coconut chips
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1/4 cup cacao butter or coconut oil (melted)
  • 2T cacao powder (or choc protein powder if you want extra protein)
  • 2tsp cinnamon 
  • Generous pinch of salt

Toss all ingredients together in a bowl. Spread evenly onto an oven tray. If you are super organised and have a bit of time up your sleeve, bake in the oven for 2 hours at 70 degrees. The reason for this is so that the oils in the nuts are protected. If however, you are pressed for time, you can bake at 160 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned. 

Enjoy! I like to serve mine with yoghurt  & blueberries.
