My go-to breakfast most days. Not much to say: it’s granola - it’s a recipe I've perfected over years and it's fucking delicious. Eat a reasonable sized portion of it with a shit-ton of fruit and throw some nuts on it. Done.
Serves: 8 cups worth - suggested 1/2 cup per serving - so, you know, 16 servings I guess…
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup quinoa flakes
2 tbsp cinnamon
3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat over to 300F.
Mix rolled oats & flakes with cinnamon.
Mix in seeds and coconut.
Slowly stir in maple syrup making an even coating all over that delicious mix.
Slowly stir in coconut oil, getting that shit everywhere.
Spread onto two baking sheets (put parchment or silicon sheets down first - whatever you got that makes stuff non-sticky.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir. Bake for another 15 minutes. Take out and let it cool a bit. Break up with hands. Mix in dried cranberries. Store in an airtight container.
Eat however the hell you wanna eat it - but I like to make a big ass fruit salad and put 1/2 cup of this granola on top of that along with about an 1/8 cup chopped nuts of whatever I’m fancying plus some almond milk. But it’s granola - eat it however the fuck you wanna eat it. And, you know, customize this however you want - swap out whatever you don't dig, yadda yadda... it's not rocket science…
If you can’t find (or just don’t want to include) quinoa flakes you can just do the whole amount as rolled oats or you can use wheat bran, sorghum flakes - whatever your little heart desires.
Eat it however you want - with plant-based milk or yogurt, or just as a topping on fruit salad without any other liquid. World’s your goddamn oyster! Whatever way you do it add a bunch of fruit to the bowl!
I usually add a half ounce of nuts to my bowl with this - pick your nut of choice.
Feel free to swap out the seeds here with any seeds you want - same as the dried fruit. Follow your bliss.
