Homemade Easy Granola

It’s no longer a mistery for all of you, my readers, that I love breakfast πŸ™‚ and the breakfast time when it’s all peaceful and I can enjoy my meal with a cup of tea or coffee. It’s the best, guys! Actually, when I go to bed, I already think what I’ll make for lunch for us and for my breakfast and I can’t wait to eat what I’ll prepare. πŸ™‚

I know that some of you won’t understand, because you are not a morning person or a breakfast person, prefer to sleep more than making your breakfast. I understand you, because I like to sleep too, but I am used to wake up before my alarm, my body got used to that.

When I worked from 9 to 5, I would wake up half an hour earlier every time to make my breakfast, I am used to not skipping breakfast. When I wake up, that’s almost the first thing I do. I don’t know if it’s good or bad, but it works really good for me. πŸ™‚

Now for the recipe, I never made granola but I found at the supermarket and it was quite expensive so I thought I would make it at home, like so many other things I make.

I had in the cabinets a lot of things that I wanted to add to my granola to taste really good, so I added them. I don’t actually measure my ingredients for the meals I make or pancakes but now I did it so that I would give you the exact measurements for this delicious granola.

Ingredients:

  • 400 g of rolled oats (I had a mix of oats, rye and corn)
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of almond slices
  • 2 tablespoons of dried cranberry
  • 3 chopped dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons of grated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a teaspoon of flax seeds

Making homemade delicious things is very easy, you just have to want this, if you are lazy, you will go to the supermarket and buy everything you need, and that way it will be more expensive and not as delicious and healthy like homemade stuff.

It’s so easy to make this breakfast treat, you just add everything in a big bowl, toss to coat and arrange it on a big and wide baking tray. Bake the granola at 180*C for 20 minutes aproximately, and toss it once halfway through to bake evenly.

Be careful, because it will brown quickly, watch the oven not to burn the granola. Let it cool completely before storing. Keep it in a air tight container in a dry place and enjoy it. πŸ™‚

That’s it, I told it’s easy to make your own granola, more delicious, with less sugar, and cheaper. Isn’t that amazing?
