Homemade Granola (Vegan)

Having granola at home can be really handy especially when you don’t have enough time to make yourself a healthy breakfast. Granola has been my favourite quick and easy breakfast, snack time and emergency food when I haven’t done my groceries shopping. Granola can be quite expensive and if you’re vegan, you might need to visit several stores before you found a vegan granola.

Making your own granola can save your time (to prepare food) and money. Basic granola requires just a handful of ingredients. You can mix with any dried fruits and nuts. Once done, store in an airtight container and it will keep for up to a month.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup granola oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • handful of chopped nuts – almond, cashew, walnut etc
  • handful of dried fruits – raisins, cranberries, dates etc

Instruction:

  1. Preheat oven to 150°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Add in the oats in the bowl. Stir to coat well.
  4.  Spread the oats out onto the prepared baking tray. Spread into an even layer and use a spatula to press lightly into the pan.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Take it out and add in chopped nuts. Stir through. Press lightly using a spatula.
  6. Bake for another 10-20 minutes until the granola and nuts turned golden-brown.
  7. Remove the tray from oven. Add in dried fruits and press the granola slightly hard before it cools to help it stick together and therefore to form clumps of granola.
  8. Let it cool down completely before storing in an airtight container. It can be store up to a month.
  9. Enjoy it with milk (like cereal) or sprinkle on yogurt as topping.
