Bruno’s dad gave me some of the fresh honey from his farm last week and I couldn’t wait to use it. Some of my favourite sweet treats are sweetened with honey. The flavour of it is so distinct and warming. It reminds me a lot of the desserts my nonna Rosa makes. It is no secret that I love smoothie bowls so coming up with new things I can top it with is always exciting. I also love sharing food with others and granola makes for the cutest gift. I honestly think this granola tastes like honey joys (my sister does too). It is sweet and crunchy and just all around delicious! It is a must make for you this weekend! Please share pictures with me if you make this because I would love to see!!
RECIPE (makes 6 cups)
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup buckinis
1 cup coconut flakes
½ cup flaxseeds
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
¼ cup honey
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 cup mulberries
Line a tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, buckinis, coconut flakes and flaxseeds.
Pour the seed mixture onto the baking tray and bake in a 180C oven for 20 minutes or until they start to go golden.
In a small bowl mix together the coconut oil, honey, sea salt and cinnamon.
Remove the seed mixture from the oven and pour it back into the large bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix until the well combined.
Pour the granola back onto the baking tray in a single layer and return it to the oven for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and while it is still warm add the mulberries.
Allow to cool for at least an hour.
Break up the granola into chunks and store in airtight jars for up to two weeks (it won’t make it that long I promise).
