Breakfast! A bowl packed full of goodness. Shown above is organic everything and one favorite way to start our day. Strauss Plain Yogurt, Blueberries, Ava + Mum's Roasted Almond Coconut Granola, Nutiva's Hemp hearts, and a nice drizzle of Dark Amber Maple Syrup.
If you are a granola lover, below is the recipe for our Roasted Almond Coconut Granola. I have experimented with the ingredients in the past but always come back to this one as it seems to be a winner in our family every time.
1 cup of Whole Roasted Almonds (Whole or Sliced depending on preference)
1 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes (Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup of Honey or Dark Amber Maple Syrup
2 1/2 cups of Rolled Oats (Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free)
1 tsp of Cinnamon Powder (or more depending on preference)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (Optional)
2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1/4 Coconut Oil (Nutiva)
Combine almonds, oats, coconut and cinnamon in a bowl. Melt coconut oil in small pot on low. Once liquid, add honey and vanilla and then mix into the almond and oat mixture. Mix well.
Pour into a baking sheet or pan and spread mixture evenly. Bake in oven at 350F for a total of 30 minutes making sure you mix the granola at the 15-minute mark. You will know when it's done as you will have a nice golden looking batch of granola.
