It’s been a while since I posted a recipe here! It’s a shame since I do all the cooking at home, but most importantly I love cooking! ❤️
The recipe I will post today is my recipe for Homemade Granola. I was never a fan of eating breakfast growing up. I have horrible memories of my father forcing me to drink warm milk before going to school. The worst was that thin layer that formed on the top of the milk. Beurk!!! ?
It’s funny because when I turned 32, I started learning things about myself. I am more of a salty-kind-of-person at breakfast. But honestly, who has time to make eggs and bacon on a busy working day. I save those for Sunday. I also like Pancakes a lot. Waffles too. And from time to time (but not often), I’ll have the classic French toasted bread and jam for breakfast.
Surprisingly, I find myself liking a lot the combination of Greek Yogurt (never milk!), Granola, and Bananas. Sometimes, I’ll add other fruits such as strawberries and blueberries.
I used to buy Granola at the store. I’ve tried quite a few, in fact. But lately, I’ve gotten use to making my own.
Nuts and seeds of your choice (hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, etc …)
First, prepare your ingredients.
Transfer all the ingredients to a bowl. For this granola, I decided to use almonds, nuts, and pumpkin seeds. You may want to add dried fruits, but I personally don’t like it. Mix well. Everything should be well-coated. Concerning the quantity of the honey and coconut oil, it depends with you and your liking. I generally put the same quantity – about 3/4 of a small glass. For the vanilla extract, a couple of drops should be enough.
Transfer the mixture to a covered baking tray. Press down with the back of the spoon.
Bake in a 150 degrees Celsius preheated oven for 20 minutes. Check from time to time.
Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely.
When your granola has cooled down completely, you can transfer it to a container. Make sure it is an airtight container. The granola is good for 2 weeks max, although honestly, we finish it within a week. ?
