I don't know about you, but I'm always disappointed by how unhealthy Granola is - and if it is healthy it's outrageously expensive 🙄 The answer? Make your own vegan, oil-free granola! It is super easy, and you can make it exactly the way you want it!!
Be sneaky and go take note of what fruits, seeds and nuts your ideal (store bought) granola contains and replicate it 😉
This is my basic recipe that you can customise easily 😍
I doubt you could go wrong! Uhm... Just think about the ingredients you use before you bake!
Fruits like raisins , cranberries, freeze dried strawberries, etc, should be added after baking.
Ingredients like coconut flakes only need to be lightly toasted - add them in for the last 5 minutes.
Make your own coconut milk and you'll know exactly what is going into your breakfast! [/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label="Enjoy recipe" _builder_version="4.4.0" text_orientation="center"]Enjoy!!

Vegan Oil-Free Granola
- 4 Cups Oats
- 1½ Cups Raw nuts and seeds This can be any of your favourites! I use Almonds, Cashews and Pumpkin seeds mostly. Macadamia nuts are always amazing when roasted 😍
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- ½ teaspoon Cinnamon Ground
- ½ Cup Aquafaba This replaces the melted coconut oil (If you don't mind oil use coconut!)
- ½ Cup Maple Syrup Sometimes I use honey from our own hives
- Preheat your oven to 180°C
- Whisk the aquafaba till fluffy and slowly add in the maple syrup
- Mix all the dry ingredients together
- Fold the wet mixture into the dry ingredients
- Spoon the mixture onto baking tray(s) - You only want a single layer on each tray
- Bake for 25 minutes, stirring midway
- *If you are adding coconut flakes to your granola, add them in for the last 5 minutes of baking
- Let the granola cool before pouring it into an airtight container**
- ***Add dried fruit after the mixture has cooled
