Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe

I had this fantastic idea to make super crunchy and out of this world good for you Florentines. Instead they turned out to be a super crunchy and out of this world good for you Granola!

As the case is with a lot of making up recipes from scratch, they don’t always work the first time around. While my vegan Florentines came out of the oven promising and the raw version had set ok in the fridge, when I tried to dislodge them from the muffin tray I’d set them in, they crumbled and fell apart.

It was 4pm I had been cooking all day and frankly I just didn’t have another Florentine attempt in me. I stared at the crumbled cookies, took a snap to Instagram some other time and thought: hang on a sec…this would make a fantastic granola! Packed with all sorts of natural and wholesome ingredients like almonds, pepitas, sunflower seeds, macadamias, pistachios and chia seeds. Sweetened with only a little rice malt syrup and a few organic sultanas for good measure, the addition of rice krispies adds the extra crunch. Awesomeness, I thought.

And so, at 4:10pm I sat at my desk with a bowl of the crunchiest, most satisfying, no added sugar bowl of Granola I’ve had in… well, probably ever. I am glad the Florentines didn’t work out, because breakfast for the rest of the week has been that much better!

Oh, and then I had another thought since I am trying to plan a wedding – this would make a perfect gift for the guests to take home, don’t you think?

So tell me, dear reader, do you have days when you crave breakfast foods as a snack? Do you find more comfort in cereal or cooked breakfast foods?

I have only had granola a couple times and fell absolutely in love. Thanks for sharing how to make your own. I definitely think I’ll be making a batch as I’m a bit of a health freak in the mornings…. Love the photos! Amazing.

What a clever person .. waste not, want not! Absolutely delicious. By the way, the Cheesecake recipe is the best in the world. I have made it twice now, the first time with Italian OOO flour, the second with unbleached organic spelt flour, but the Italian was by far the best BECAUSE it was much finer and the pastry was so delicate. The spelt was rather heavy and stodgy. The filling is also scrumptious.

Congrats on your engagement.

This looks great! I rarely eat breakfast so I tend to eat my breakfast foods as a snack. Cereal is such a great idea if you feel like something crunchy! 😀

Busy busy girl, lots going on! That was me last year – overseas wedding, buying/renovating our apartment and working like a crazy lady. You can totally do it! You’ll look back with self pride and a bit of disbelief, but you’ll do it 🙂

I adore granola, I have it almost every day with yogurt and berries. Love making it at home, too, so your recipe is next in my queue!

Thanks Amanda! I might include it in the little “gourmet guestroom packs” I am planning.

Your granola recipe sounds lovely. I have muesli every morning (week days) with natural yoghurt and honey.
