Homemade granola recipe

Homemade granola

 

 

Homemade granola can seem totally out of a busy momma’s reach.

That’s what I thought when I worked a (more than) full-time job. Until I made it myself and realised how ridiculously easy it is.

To me, this recipe is simply the best homemade granola I’ve ever tried. But I guess granola is a lot like bolognese sauce… most people swear by their own (or their mother’s) recipe.

If you’re new to making your own granola you MUST try this one. It’s a simple granola that can form a good base for more experimentation later on until you find your own winning recipe.

WHY SHOULD YOU MAKE HOMEMADE GRANOLA?

  • Most commercial granola is unhealthy: they’re usually high in sugar and unhealthy fats and are full of additives and other unnecessary ingredients
  • You control what goes in: if you’re using only healthy and quality ingredients it will be a pleasure to see your kids enjoy a good bowl of granola for breakfast or as a snack
  • It’s so easy to make
  • It’s cheaper
  • It’s tastier
  • It’ll make your kitchen smell like heaven!

WHY IS MY HOMEMADE GRANOLA HEALTHY?

Because it’s rich in fibre, protein, healthy fats and low in simple carbohydrates like sugar. A perfect combination for a breakfast that will keep you satiated for a few hours.
