Maple Cinnamon Granola

Granola. Divine. It’s a meal. A snack. A snack to be put on top of a snack. No more expensive boxed granola full of added sugar and processed ingrediants. This is real food. And it’s really, really good.

My usual granola with almond milk, banana and pumpkin seeds

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • a dash of salt
  • cinnamin (go wild, I don’t measure this part)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Mix all of the ingrediants in a large bowl, mixing with your hands to make sure it’s fully combined
  • Spread out the mixture on the baking sheet evenly (the less you scatter the mixture the more chunkier your granola will be)
  • Bake for 20 mins, stirring halfway through
  • Remove the baking sheet and let the granola cool (this allows it to get crispy!)
  • Feel free to add any extra additions (I like chopped dates, dried fruit, dark chocolate or unsweetened coconut) or just top with fresh fruit later
