I often ask clients to consider a granola for a breakfast idea, the usual replies tend to be “ they are full of sugar or too difficult to make”. So I have decided to create my own that is easy to make and most importantly has hardly any sugar enjoy!
- 10 tbsp coconut milk
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup macadamia nuts
- ½ cup hazelnuts
- ½ cup walnuts
- ½ cup pecans
- ¼ cup sunflower seeds
- ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
- 10 tbsp millet flour
- 2 tbsp ground chia seeds
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 5 tsp xylitol or 1 tsp stevia
- ½ tsp alcohol free vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups of coconut flakes
- 4 tbsp of coconut oil
- Combine nuts (macadamia, hazelnut, walnut, pecan, sunflower & pumpkin) and soak them for 10 – 12 hours to activate them. I recommend starting this the morning the day before you want to make your granola. Drain the water and air dry overnight.
- Put the chia seeds in a bowl and mix in 5 tbsp of coconut milk and set aside to congeal.
- Heat up the coconut oil and set aside.
- Pre-heat the oven to 110 degrees.
- When the nuts are reasonably dry put them in the food processor with the coconut flakes, ginger powder, cinnamon, xylitol or stevia, millet flour, ground chia seeds, vanilla extract, remaining, coconut milk and coconut oil. Blitz until roughly combined, should appear chunky.
- Put some cooking paper in a roasting dish and add the mix.
- It will take around 4 hours to slow cook and remember to stir occasionally.
- There you have it, a high protein, fibre and good fats meal. Add some Goji berries/frozen berries and coconut yoghurt to make it a superfood breakfast.
