The smell of toasting granola is something that is so comforting to me. If I have made a batch the aroma fills the whole house. I love making big batches so that it can stay in the pantry and be ready to go as a quick and easy breakfast. The recipe I have provided is just a guide. Feel free to experiment with different nuts, buckinis, sultanas and cacao nibs. This beautiful granola lasts in the pantry for up to three weeks (like it will last that long). I like it on top of Greek yogurt with some fresh berries as a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. I hope you try this one out, its delicious!
RECIPE (makes 7 cups)
1/3 cup almond butter
2 tbsp honey
¼ cup coconut oil
1 cup pistachios, deshelled
1 cup almonds
1 cup walnuts
½ cup cashews
1 cup goji berries
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp cinnamon (optional)
In a large bowl, place the pistachios, almonds, walnuts, cashews, goji berries, oats and cinnamon.
Melt the almond butter, honey and coconut oil in a bowl in the microwave for a few seconds until it is soft enough to stir. Mix well.
Pour the almond butter mixture over the top of the other ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, stir until every piece of granola is coated in the almond butter mixture.
Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper. Pour the mixture on the tray in a single layer.
Bake in a 160 degree oven for 15 minutes, checking every few minutes to ensure it doesn’t burn.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container or jar.
