This sugar-free granola makes a wonderful breakfast served on top of creamy coconut yogurt, or with cold coconut or nut milk. Add a handful of fresh berries and extra toppings of your choice (bee pollen, hemp seeds, chia seeds, goji berries, raisins etc.)
The nuts, seeds, dried fruit and coconut make this high in fibre and good for your gut bacteria too.
Makes around 10 servings
- Requires nuts & seeds to be soaked overnight.
- This will keep for 3 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.
- Food processor
- Foil lined baking tray
- 200g nuts of your choice – soaked overnight and then rinsed well
- 200g mixed seeds – soaked overnight and then rinsed well
- 150g fresh blueberries/1 punnet fresh blueberries
- 5cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 vanilla pod, cut in half down the length
- 100g dried blueberries
- 100g dried coconut flakes
- Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
- Place the nuts in the food processor and pulse until chopped into smaller pieces. Place the chopped nuts and seeds into a large mixing bowl.
- In a small pan place the blueberries, fresh ginger, coconut oil, cinnamon and the seeds scraped from the vanilla pod. Heat very gently, stirring, until the blueberries break down. Place the mixture into the food processor and blitz until smooth.
- Stir the blueberry mixture thoroughly into the nuts and seeds until everything is well coated.
- Line a large baking tray with tin foil. Spread the granola mixture out evenly until you have a layer only about 1cm thick.
- Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the granola is very dry but not burnt. I set a timer and check after every 10 minutes to ensure the granola does not burn. Turn after 20 minutes to ensure the granola cooks evenly. Sometimes I turn the oven off after 30 minutes and leave the granola with the oven door ajar to dry it out at a lower heat.
- Allow to cool and then mix in the dried blueberries and dried coconut flakes. Store in an airtight container.
