RECIPE: Back-to-School Granola
September is here and that means back-to-school (hopefully) for kids and teachers. Mornings are going to look a little different with new routines and perhaps earlier wake-ups. Make the most of your morning time with simple, healthy breakfasts that will keep your whole family fuelled for the day. I love granola. But that store bought stuff can contain heaps of processed sugars and making your own tastes so much better! This healthy granola has chia seeds for a burst of omega-3s and lots of nuts and seeds for protein. Top with fresh seasonal fruit and you’re good to go!
- 2 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
- 1/2 cup Whole hazelnuts
- 1/2 cup Pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup Shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup Almond slivers
- 3 Tbs Chia seeds (a few tablespoons)
- Dried Apricots to taste (I used 1/4 cup, rough chopped)
- 3-4 Tbs Coconut oil
- 2-4 Tbs Maple syrup (to taste… less if you like it less sweet)
- Dash of Himalayan sea salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix it up. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread granola evenly on the pan. Bake until your kitchen smells amazing, about 30-35mins.
Top with almond milk or yogurt and fresh fruit. Enjoy!
