My go-to breakfast during the week is usually a bowl of yoghurt with banana and granola. I’ve always loved making my own granola, instead of store-bought ones, because it allows you to control the amount of sugar and ingredients, while also changing things up and adding the flavours that you love. I’ve previously shared some granola recipes on the blog; like this tasty Honey Nut Granola, or this healthy Peanut Butter Granola.
When I started living with my boyfriend (now fiancé – still feels weird calling him that) I realised that, because he’s very allergic to all nuts, he never really ate granola. Store bought granola often contain nuts or have a strong ‘traces of nuts’ risk, so I thought I’m going to make a homemade granola that also he can enjoy!
This recipe is now my go-to and I make a new batch at least every two weeks. It’s super quick and easy, as it only takes 5 minutes to prep and then just 15 minutes in the oven. And, the house always smells soooo good afterwards. I hope you like this recipe and will give it a try. And trust me, once you try homemade granola, you won’t go back to store-bought granola. It’s so much better!
PS: If nuts aren’t an issue for you then, of course, feel free to add them to the recipe, just use them in place of or in combination with the seeds.
