If you know me or have followed my blog for a bit, you know how much I love a good crunch! In all of my snacks/meals, I always have to include something that has this crunchy texture to it.
Therefore, granola is my favourite. I love it on smoothie bowls, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, yogurts, etc. The options are really endless.
I have just recently started being more aware of what is in the granola that I buy from the store and I have noticed that all the ones that are actually good for you are really expensive! So of coarse, the super cheap accountant in me HAD to make a recipe that was a lot cheaper but still delicious!
- 1/2 cup of quick oats
- 1/2 cup of puffed millet
- 1/2 cup of puffed quinoa
- 2-3 tbsp of sunflower seeds
- dash of cinnamon (based on personal preference)
- 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp of brown rice syrup
- Combine all of the dry ingredients and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup and rice syrup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
- Pour half of the syrups evenly on the dry ingredients and then stir really well. Then add the rest of the syrup and stir well again.
- Pour evenly onto a lined baking sheet and bake in the oven at 300 for 20 minutes.
- Let sit for at least 1 hour (the longer the better since this is when the granola hardens).
- Once the granola is hard, break into small pieces.
Note- you can easily add in some nuts or dried fruit to this recipe too!
