here it is. the recipe for my oil and refined sugar free granola. so delicious and loaded with a lot of healthy nutrients. to me mornings are complete bliss! what's better than a fresh start into something new?! a new day, which has a lot to offer. dive into another (mundane) adventure.
maple-banana granola (1 baking tray)
+ 5-6 table spoons maple syrup
+ 2 mashed bananas
+ 1 cup oats
+ 1/4 cup chia seeds
+ 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
+ 1/4 cup flax seeds
+ 1/4 cup sliced almonds
+ juice of 1 lemon
+ 2 tea spoons cinnamon
+ 1 handful pumpkin seeds
+ 10 dates (+/-) finely chopped
preheat the oven (150°)
mash the bananas with a fork together with the maple syrup. then combine all the ingredients beside the pumpkin seeds and the chopped dates and mix well.
pour the mixture onto your baking tray and bake for around 15' on 150°. Stir ones in a while. Now turn the temperature a down to 100° and bake for another 15'. Don't forget to stir :)
At the end you can add the pumpkin seeds and dates, because you don't want them to be blackened. Bake for another 5-10'. Turn the oven off but leave the granola inside the oven till completely cool. Store in an airtight container and enjoy with your favourite fruit, yoghurt / milk.
p.s. since I quality over quantity - I highly recommend the nuts & dried fruit from Pakka. I've already visited their company several times and got an insight view of their business policy, which convinced me to spend a little more money on something.
