Need a quick, hassle free big batch of granola to keep you on track of your healthy breakfasts this week? This was put together while travelling and staying at my parents house in the UK.
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of seeds (in this batch I used 1/2 cup of mixed seeds, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and 1/2 a cup of milled flax seed)
1 cup of nuts (in this batch I used hazelnuts)
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
1/2 cup of sweetener (in this batch I used Rice Malt Syrup)
1 box of pre-made granola cereal of choice – in this batch I used Eat Natural Buckwheat
Pre-heat the oven to 100-120 degrees.
In a large bowl add the rolled oats, seeds and nuts and stir until combined.
In a small bowl stir the melted coconut oil and sweetener together and then pour into the large bowl of granola mix. Stir until the granola is completely covered with the coconut & sweetener.
Use a non-stick baking tray (or line a tray with parchment paper) pour the sticky granola mix on the tray and spread into an even layer.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and then stir, return to the oven and bake for the final 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Once cooled add in the boxed cereal and stir.
Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Enjoy with some added fresh blueberries and non-dairy milk of choice.
Enjoy as a post workout snack by blending protein powder to your milk.
