One of my favourite breakfasts is granola with yoghurt and fruit. It’s super easy to put together on a busy morning and is the perfect combination of sweet, crunchy and delicious.
There are many store bought brands that I love, however, as my journey into healing my insulin resistance has progressed I have quickly learned that even healthy granolas have a much higher sugar content that I should be consuming for my particular health goals. Following this I started researching quick, easy and flavourful options to create this breakfast staple at home.
After many attempts I have come up with a combination of ingredients that are super satisfying, high in protein and deliciously sweet without any artificial sweeteners.
Let’s get mixing…
Start off by preheating your oven to 180 degrees. Melt coconut oil and honey if it isn’t liquid already and allow to cool slightly. Chop up the large nuts and seeds if you prefer. Add all of your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, give everything a quick toss then add in the oil and honey.
Mix everything together, the mixture will be quite sticky but this is good! Bake for 20 mins at 180. Once the granola is done, allow to cool completely for clumps to form. If you are short on time you can pop the entire tray into the freezer to speed up the process. Transfer to an airtight container and enjoy as a snack or healthy breakfast.
