This granola is sweetened with maple syrup and packed with almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sultanas. So easy to make and so good for you.
Hello! Today is time for a breakfast post. It’s no secret that I am utterly obsessed with granola. However, I was quick to realize that most store bought granola is packed with sugar. So, although it is really delicious, it’s not so good for you and if you asked me, I would much rather use my sugar quota eating cake.
The best thing about making your own granola is that it is such a good way of using up all your leftover little bits and pieces of nuts and dried fruit. I used the basic recipe that I used for my Easy Homemade Nutty Vegan Granola but this time round I used almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sultanas. To sweeten, I used 4 tablespoons of maple syrup.
The result, lovely granola for breakfast this week. So easy and so good for you.
