Sugar free granola
This is my go to breakfast when I want a change from eggs. You can use a variety of nuts in this recipe. I always use activated nuts as they are easier to digest and so much crispier. Most of the store bought granola is high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils. When you make it yourself, you know exactly what you’re putting into it.
This granola is so simple to make and one batch will make about six servings. I like to have mine with coconut yoghurt as a dairy free alternative. Any nut milk will work just as well (even a little cashew cream could be delicious).
2/3 cup pecans (or nuts of your choice)
1/2 cup pepitas
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 drops liquid stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
1/4 cup raisins (or goji berries)
Preheat oven to 160º.
Mix pecans, pepitas, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon and coconut flakes together.
Melt coconut oil over gentle heat. Add stevia drops to it.
Pour coconut oil over granola and mix thoroughly.
Tip the granola onto a baking sheet and spread evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. (Stir every 10 minutes to prevent burning).
Stir through raisins or goji berries.
Serve with yoghurt or your choice, fresh fruit or nut milk.
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
