Start your day the right way with a bowl of delicious crunchy granola. There are lots of different varieties of granola, each containing slightly different ingredients, and it can be a great source of energy - perfect if you’ve got a busy day ahead.
You can buy granola in a ready-made mix like Troo Granola Nicely Nutty with Cinnamon or Deliciously Ella Granola which contains almonds, oats, cinnamon, orange juice, maple syrup, coconut chips, raisins and seeds.
Granola is very versatile and there is a ready-made granola mix to suit every taste, with ingredients varying from dried fruit to extra nuts and everything in between.
If you have a bit more of a sweet tooth, why not try Troo Granola Chocolate with Orange which is high in fibre and also contains rich dark chocolate and tangy orange oil.
Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even make your own!
Making your own granola cereal at home means that you’re able to control what ingredients to include in it. Plus it’s super easy!
If you don’t like one of the variety of nuts or seeds then just leave them out, or swap them for something else you’d prefer.
If you fancy making your own, here’s what you need to make homemade granola:
For the bulk of this healthy yet super simple granola recipe, you will need rolled oats, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaked almonds, dried berries and coconut flakes.
You can also start your homemade granola with a Granola Base, oat clusters which have a hint of honey and don’t need to be oven baked.
Mix all the ingredients, aside from the dried fruit and coconut flakes, with maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract and vegetable oil and mix together well. Pour this mixture into baking trays and spread evenly. Bake this in the oven for 15 minutes and then mix in the dried fruit and coconut flakes.
Bake for 10-15 more minutes before removing and transferring the mixture onto a tray to cool. And then eat!
