If you want to make sure you eat a granola without a ton of added sugars, bake your own! You also have better control over the ingredients. For example if you need to follow a gluten-free diet, just use oats packed in a facility not mixing gluten- and gluten-free foods.
It does not take much time and is really easy. Just take a few steps and you are able to enjoy a heavenly delightful taste for breakfast!
Switch out the seeds or nuts with any of your choice.
1 1/2 Cup of Old-fashioned Oats
1 tsp Nutmeg
2 tbsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp Canola Oil
5 tbsp Honey
1/2 Cup Walnuts or Almonds
1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
1/4 Cup Poppy Seeds
Step 1 – Base
Mix the old-fashioned oats with nutmeg and cinnamon. Add oil, honey and stir until well blended. It gets kind of sticky.
Step 2 – Triple Patches
Once you have prepared the base, split it into 3 patches. This will give you a variety, and you can pick and choose for your next try what you liked the best ;o)
Add the types of nuts and seeds you like the most. I have tried walnuts and almonds, chia and poppy seeds. They all worked well and tasted really good.
Step 3 – Bake
Spread on parchment paper and bake @ 300F (150C) for 15-20 min. The granola should be turning lightly golden.
Cool-off and enjoy as a healthy snack to fuel your training!
Can be easily frozen or stored in sealed containers for several days.
