You know what a good friend is, someone who brings over snacks for a playdate at your house because you are just a little too unorganized, haha. The other week my friend Erin came over with her son Henry for a play date. She brought all the goodies for Yogurt Bowls including her delicious Homemade Granola.
I couldn't stop dreaming about her yummy Homemade Granola after she left, so I had to get the recipe from her. It's all I have been wanting to eat since. I figure at least it's a somewhat healthy pregnancy craving, haha!
Emery just had to get in on the action, and kept saying "Cheese" every time I took a photo, haha! She is such a little ham.
Homemade Granola Recipe
-2-3 cups of nuts ( I used pecans, sliced almonds and whole almonds)
-1/2 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
-1/2 raw pumpkin seeds
-1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
-roughly 10 chopped dates
-1/4 cup melted coconut oil
-3tsp vanilla extract
-3 tsp cinnamon
Mix all the nuts, seeds, and dates together. Mix together the melted coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon. Coat the nut/seed mixture with coconut oil mixture and spread on a pan. Cook it for 20 minutes at 320C, take it out and stir. Cook it for another 5-10 minutes or until nuts look toasty.
This recipe is so easy and super delicious! When Erin brought it over we had it with plain Greek Yogurt (love it with Liberte Mediterranee 11%), topped with berries and a little maple syrup. So darn good! I've been eating it for breakfast or a bedtime snack.
Let me know if you try it out, or what your favourite Granola recipe is!
