-Whole Rolled Oats
*make sure NOT to use steel cut and/or instant oats
*we used Quinoa Flakes instead of oats as a healthier option, but this is a bit pricier
*if you're not fussed about keeping it vegan, you can use honey instead, or a combo of both
- 3 Cups of Whole Rolled Oats (or Quinoa Flakes)
- 1/2 Cup of Maple Syrup
- 4 tablespoons Coconut Oil
-Preheat oven to 150 C (300 F)
-Use non-stick baking paper to ensure mixture doesn't get stuck to pan.
-Spread mixture THINLY onto baking tray to ensure it cooks all the way through.
-If you have small trays, you may need to use more than one.
-Pat firmly if you prefer chunky granola
-Bake for about 10 minutes
-It's tricky to know when the granola is done, because it won't fully harden until it cools.
-Even if it's still sticky/moist, but it cooked maple syrup/honey, then it's probably done.
-I usually bake for about 10 - 13 minutes only.
Naturally, you can eat as is. But, there are tons of options you can add this yummy mixture to, as well. Below are a few of my go-to dishes.
-Serve with coconut and/or nut milk as a cereal substitute
-Add on Smoothie bowls (for extra crunch!)
-Eat with Coconut yogurt
-Combine with Chia Pudding (make your own!)
-Include in a Breakfast Parfait (make your own!)
-Eat with fresh fruit
-Snack on it as it is!
