While I try to live a healthy life as much as I possibly can, sometimes I find that
it is at times difficult to always afford the best possible ingredients and keep up with the “super-food” craze we seem to be surrounded by.
I decided to start creating my own super-food mixes and blends, and try and stick to basic, whole foods in their most natural state possible, in order to ensure I am getting all the essential nutrients in my daily diet. In order to do this, I feel that it is much easier to do this by making my food fun, flavorsome, and as nutrient dense as possible.
So here I made this delicious granola, using organic ingredients as much as possible, and I am so happy with how it has turned out.
- 1 1/2 cups of oats
- 1/4 cup of almonds
- 1/4 cup of walnuts
- 1/4 cup of pepitas
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 2 tbs almond butter
- 1/4 cup of coconut flakes
- 1 tbsp rice malt syrup
- pinch of salt
- Pre heat oven to about 160 degrees celsius.
- Blend all the ingredients in a large bowl, making sure to combine all the ingredients well.
- Spread out on a baking dish and some baking paper evenly and place them in the oven on a low heat for about 15 minutes, making sure to keep an eye on it, and tadaaaa, easy done!
