Cranberry and Hazelnut Granola
Good Morning!! This homemade Granola will make your morning even better! My cranberry and hazelnut granola is a perfect way to start your day whether it is with some milk, yoghurt and berries or even just as a quick snack when you are out and about.
I've posted a granola recipe within some of my breakfast recipes but I felt that this recipe deserves a solo post! I seriously love this recipe, it is probably the thing I make most often. I will always start the day with this granola, spoonfuls of natural yoghurt and fresh berries. So so yummy!
I know some of you will be thinking.. why on earth would I make my own granola when I can buy a perfectly good one from the shop? Well if you haven't tried homemade granola, you need to try it! It tastes so so much better, it has more flavour and you have complete control with what you put in it. If you want less sugar then you can put less sugar, if you want more fruit and nuts you can put more in. The freedom is all yours! As I say in most of my recipes, it is free to interpretation, especially this recipe. You can change the fruit and nuts to whatever you prefer. So you can tailor your granola to yourself. How great is that?!
You will need a baking tray
300g Coarse Cut Oats
2 tbsp. Coconut Oil
100g Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Salt
60g Chopped Hazelnuts
100g Dried Cranberries
50g Sunflower Seeds
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan and mix with the honey and maple syrup. Add to the oats and salt. Mix together until all combined.
Pour onto the prepared tray, making sure it is distributed evenly across the tray. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
After the 10 minutes, add the hazelnuts and seeds. Use a spatula to mix the granola to that it cooks evenly.
Place in the oven for another 10 minutes. It should look golden brown. Remove from the oven and add the cranberries. Leave to cool completely.
Put in an airtight container or jar. It should last for a couple weeks. Enjoy with yoghurt and berries or some milk!
