Recipe – Healthy Fruit n Nut Toasted Cinnamon Granola

Healthy Fruit n Nut Cinnamon Panela Granola
I will readily admit to being a granola addict. I have it for breakfast with milk, with yoghurt and compote as a mid-morning snack, and even just straight from the jar when I am feeling peckish. 

This homemade fruit and nut granola is so easy to make, and uses just the best quality whole-food ingredients: such as porridge oats, chopped nuts, dried fruit and unrefined organic panela sugar.

Granola is a healthy snack, with low GI energy coming from the oats, protein and essential oils from the nuts, and natural sugars from the fruit and panela sugar. 

Make a big batch of this and you will be set up for quick and healthy breakfasts and snacks before your next riding adventure.

Ingredients

  • Porridge oats [3 cups] – (I recommend Rude Health '5 Grain 5 Seed Porridge' or jumbo rolled oats)
  • Mixed roasted nuts [1 cup]
  • Organic Panela sugar [1/2 cup]
  • Dried cranberries [1/3 cup]
  • Sultanas [1/3 cup]
  • Mixed pumpkin and sunflower seeds [1/3 cup] 
  • Walnut oil [5 tbsp]
  • Runny honey [2 tbsp]
  • Vanilla essence [1 tsp]
  • Ground mixed spice [1 tsp]
  • Ground cinnamon [1 tsp]
  • Fine sea salt [1/2 tsp]

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  • Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until the colour of the mixture is consistent and the spices and oil are evenly distributed
  • Empty the mixture onto a non-stick baking tray and distribute evenly
  • Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring the mixture halfway through to toast all sides
  • Remove from the over when the mixture has reached a golden colour
  • Allow to cool before storing in an airtight container
One of my favourite ways to enjoy this healthy granola is with homemade yoghurt and compote made with home-grown rhubarb. Yum!
