It’s easy to make your own granola, and it’s just as good (if not better) that the bought variety.
The mixture is quite healthy and perfect for breakfast with some yogurt or milk.
2 1/4 cups (200 g) oats
1/3 cup (50 g) pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup (50 g) sunflower seeds
5 tablespoons flax (linseeds)
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
5 1/3 – 7 oz. (150–200 g) dried cranberries
1/3 cup (70 g) brown sugar
1/3 cup (75 ml) sunflower oil
1/3 cup (75 ml) runny honey
1/3 cup (75 ml) maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F (180 ˚C).
Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Spread out the oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax and sesame seeds.
Put in the oven for about 8 minutes until golden and fragrant.
Put the brown sugar, sunflower oil, honey and maple syrup in a sauce pan and warm until melted and runny.
Pour over the oat and seed mixture, stir to mix and tip into a pan.
Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
Cool completely – preferably 2-3 hours in the fridge.
Crush the granola quite finely and transfer to a large jar or container.
Now enjoy with some yogurt..
