Hey guys! Have you ever made homemade granola? Its soon good and so easy to make and will make your entire home smell scrumptious! There are lots of good store bought granolas you can find out there but if you want to control the ingredients, save some money and have an extra tasty choice, make your own! If you are purchasing be aware that some have loads of hidden sugar, oils salts and flavorings.
If you are new to making homemade granola here is a good one for ya! Its super simple, uses only natural ingredients (minus the optional vegan chocolate chips), AND if you dont have an oven, just keep it raw. You can also roll into protein balls if you want an on the go snack you can take with ya! I gotta keep this short because my mr Nalu is probably going to wake up soon but you’ll find the recipe below. I hope you love it! If you make it Id love to see on IG @earthyandy! I love seeing your creations! Hope you’re having a beautiful day! Now go make some homemade granola!! :)
Lots of Love,
I N G R E D I E N T S
2 cups old fashioned organic oats
1 cup natural peanut butter or fav nut butter
1 cup assorted crushed nuts (I used pecans and slivered almonds)
1/4 cup hemp hearts
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
optional to add after baking:
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup coconut flakes
M E T H O D
Pre-heat oven to 340 F.
In a large bowl add all your wet ingredients; peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla. With a spoon mix ingredients until they are mixed in evenly.
Add in all of you dry ingredients; oats, crushed nuts, hemp hearts to your wet ingredients and mix evenly..
You should arrive at a crumbly texture.
On a lined cookie sheet spread your granola mixture and place on middle rack and bake for aprox 20 minutes or until golden brown. At aprox 10 minutes take out and mix mixture before baking for the last 10 minutes.
Once golden brown, take out and cool before adding chocolate chips and coconut shreds!
Store in an air tight container and enjoy!
FUN TIP! You can take this exact recipe without baking it and make power balls or leave as a chewy granola! If making balls just roll into balls and put in your refrigerator! If it needs a bit more moisture add another scoop of peanut butter!
NOTE: This granola turns out to have a slight crisp and then melts in your mouth. If you want a crispy crunchy granola, change 1 cup of peanut butter to 1/2 cup, and add 1/2 cup of coconut oil. The coconut oil will give your granola that crunch! I like it both ways!
