Golden Chewy Granola
I enjoy this as a really quick breakfast with a glass of homemade chocolate milk or as a quick snack on the run. It has lovely oils for our brain and our heart, antioxidants to protect our cells, vitamin E as an anti-inflammatory and to protect against infection along with many other vitamins and minerals to keeps us healthy.
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup dried fruit*
- 1 cup mixed nuts and seeds*
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup rice malt syrup or honey
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare a large tray with baking paper. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine completely. Spread the mixture evenly onto the tray. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, take out of the oven and stir the mixture around. Spread out evenly again. Bake another 10-12 minutes. Once the granola has turned golden be sure to remove it from the oven. Best to keep an eye on it closely. Give the granola another stir and leave to cool on the tray. Once cool break it up into big or little pieces and store in an airtight container in your pantry for up to a week. If it lasts that long!
