One of my favorite breakfasts is yogurt topped with granola and heaps of fresh fruit. Store bought granola is great when you’re in a time crunch but I also love to take the time to make my own homemade granola because it just tastes extra good, and you know exactly what is going into it. You can absolutely make this recipe without the protein, and just add in a little extra oats or coconut flakes if you want. The awesome thing about granola is you can add pretty much whatever ingredients you want, and it will come out delicious every time!
YOU WILL NEED:
1 large bowl
1 baking tray
2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1/4 cup Sarah’s Day Cookie Dough protein powder
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup walnuts, rough chopped (you can also use pecans, almonds, or whatever nut you prefer)
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup maple syrup
1.) Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2.) In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, then add in the wet ingredients. Mix until it becomes clumpy. Pour onto the prepared baking tray.
3.) Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven, mix around the granola on the pan, then bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven. If you would like to add in some chocolate chips, you can add them now.
4.) Allow to cool, then store in a air tight container for up to 3 weeks.
