Healthy Homemade Granola Made From Scratch

I love making my own healthy homemade granola. You can add whatever you want and there is much less sugar than the kind you would buy at the supermarket. I use a super simple recipe that is easy to make. My son, Eli helps me make it.

Ingredients:
2 TBsp Honey
2 TBsp Peanut Butter
3 c Rolled Oats
1 c Nuts and seeds 
1/2 c Dried Fruit

First mix the peanut butter and honey together until it makes a smooth paste then add the rolled oats. 

I just used normal oats but you can use gluten free or whole wheat if you prefer. I just used what I had on hand so I didn’t have to go to the shop to buy anything. Try and get all the oats fully coated in the peanut butter mix. 

Mix in  either regular, gluten free or whole wheat rolled oats

I then chopped the nuts.  This time I used walnuts, brazil nuts, cashews and sliced almonds but you can use whatever you have on hand. Macadamia and pecan nuts would be great too. For seeds I used pumpkin, sesame, sunflower and chia seeds. 

To be honest I don’t measure how much I put in, I just play it by ear and use what I’ve got and how much I want to save for next time. 

Put it on a roasting dish

Then I baked them on an oven tray at 150 degrees celsius (300F) making sure I turn them often. I have a really small gas oven so I have probably overloaded it a bit too much so in future I will try making it with 2 cups of oats instead of 3.

Once they are all nice and evenly toasted, I take them out of the oven and let them cool down. Once they are cool I will add my dried fruit. This time I added cranberries, apriots, dates, raisins and a bit of shredded coconut as well. Then store it all in an airtight container. I assume it will last a while but it never does in my house – it’s gone within days and I have to make a new batch!

So there you have it! My easy peasy homemade granola. It’s great for breakfast with fresh fruit and yoghurt or on it’s on as a healthy snack.

Do you make your own muesli or granola? Let me know in the comments if you have tried this.
