Introduction:

 

Granola!! ... and not an oat flake in sight. This nut, seed and oil combo is a nutrient powerhouse. And very very moreish. Fats still get a bad rep, but they are vital to sustain energy, ensure proper cognitive function, enable absorption of many key micronutrients, and much much more. This granola also provides a fibre (thanks chia), vitamin and antioxidant mega hit to see you on your way through the day. Pair with Greek yoghurt, whey and berries for your proteins and carbs ... as well as gut friendly bacteria and an even broader spectrum of micronutrients.

 

It is highly addictive … you have been warned!!

 

Cooking time:

  • 10 mins prep

  • 3 hrs cooking time

 

Ingredients:

  • 50g almonds

  • 50g pecans

  • 25g pumpkin seeds

  • 20g dessicated coconut

  • 25g chia seeds

  • 30g peanut butter

  • 30g cashew butter

  • 30g honey

  • 10g extra virgin olive oil

 

Method:

  • Mix it all up until thoroughly combined, then bake on a lined baking tray for 3 hours at 90 degrees, until the mixture is golden and fairly dry to the touch.

  • Leave to cool and then store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.

 

Variations to consider:

  • If you do want higher carb and lower fat, add toasted oats after cooking!

  • Serve with high protein yoghurt and fruit or oats, to add protein and carbs to your brekkie.

  • Use as a topping to your fave smoothie bowl, to add fats!

  • Switch up the nuts you use, to change the flavour and micronutrient focus. For example, switching the peanut and cashew butter for almond butter will up the magnesium, antioxidant and vitamin E content, for an immune boost and muscle chill pill!!
