Store bought granola can be very unhealthy, and good quality granola can be very expensive. That is why making your own is a much better idea. It allows you to control exactly what ingredients go into it. Enjoy with fruit and yoghurt, milk or plain as a snack.
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup cacao powder
¼ cup maple syrup
3 cups Pouyoukas whole rolled oats
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup Pouyoukas pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup raw cacao nibs
3 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Melt the coconut oil in a small pot on the stove. Add the cacao powder and maple syrup and stir on low heat until combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl combine the oats, cranberries, coconut, pumpkin seeds, raw cacao nibs, chia seeds and cinnamon.
Pour the chocolate mixture over oat mixture and mix until fully combined.
Give it a taste test. If you want it sweeter, you can add a touch more maple syrup.
Spread flat on a pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway so that it bakes evenly.
