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.

So, go crazy making your own granola!

To start, all you really need is oats, some oil and your sweetener of choice. Then select your add ins. Nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut, banana chips, the list of possible add ins goes on and on.

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.
