How to make healthy homemade granola

Let’s make our own healthy homemade granola, girls! Making your own bowl of granola is super easy and fun, but moreover allows you to control the amount of sugar, fat and quality. I made a delicious big batch of healthy granola with coconut and almonds, and today I’m sharing the recipe!

Most of the granola stuff in stores is high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils, fats and unnecessary ingredients. Today’s granola recipe is clean, “diet-proof” and full of all the vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and (good) fat that your body needs. I think it’s a big PLUS that you can add in the flavors that you love the most, so you can really make this the best treat. I prefer to add granola to my breakfast, however you can also eat it on the go or just as a snack between meals.

My last advice is to be creative sweeties, and try out new healthy (raw & organic)  ingredients every time you make yourself some yummy healthy homemade granola. Perhaps with chocolate? Nom, nom, nom..

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 15-20 min

INGREDIENTS

– 1 cup raw almonds (unsalted)
– 1 cup walnuts
– 1 cup raw cashews (unsalted)
– 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
– 2 tspn sea salt

METHOD

1. Preheat the oven to 135C (keep it at low temperature!).
2. Put all the nuts and seeds in a blender and mix until the nuts are the size of oats.
3. Add the honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon and the salt to the mixture in the blender and pulse until combined.
4. Spread the granola mixture from the blender onto a baking sheet with parchment paper and cook for 15-20 minutes. TIP: flip the granola once or twice while it’s in the oven.
5. When ready stir the cranberries and shredded coconut with the granola mixture. The granola may be a little sticky and wet when it’s still warm, so let it cool down completely to get it crispy.

P.S. You can eat granola with milk, low-fat yogurt or quark!

    This sounds better than my sugary muesli! But if I want to eat it as my breakfast, how many portions will I have with this recipe?

      Hi there Samantha! Thank you for leaving me a message 🙂
      You are right, its so much better! And honestly, still sweet and delicious!

      I would advice you to make this recipe and keep the granola in a bowl so you can enjoy it for breakfast each day. It’s no problem to keep the granola in a bowl outside the fridge. This recipe is counts more than one serving.

      Good luck and enjoy!

      With love,
      Carolina.
