Homemade granola

Like anyone with a toddler, I’ve been through so many different breakfast options. Something that is a favourite one week isn’t the next.

Yoghurt and fruit has always been a firm favourite that never seems to get tired though so at least I always have that to fall back on. That said, I usually prefer him to have a little more in his tummy to start the day. I have been known to give him a homemade muffin or banana bread in desperation! Whatever works I say and given I add very little sugar to them I figure it’s OK every now and then.

At the moment we have a few different breakfasts on rotation. Porridge, CADA and apple and cinnamon pancakes seem to all work for the moment.

But I wanted something else to have that was quick to prepare on those busy mornings. So I’ve done a bit of experimenting and come up with this fabulous granola mix. The best thing is that it doesn’t have any dried fruit so is low in sugar. But it’s packed with vitamins, minerals and healthy fats and is a perfect breakfast food. Add some milk, yoghurt and fresh fruit and it’s a yummy, crunchy breakfast.

Make up a batch to store in a jar and it will last a few weeks.

Happy baking!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees celcius
  2. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. I use the oven tray that came with my oven. If you have a small tray you may need to use two.
  3. Add all ingredients to the Thermomix bowl
  4. Turbo for 2 - 3 seconds. Check after 2 seconds and if the texture requires it, do for another second.
  5. Spread the mixture on the lined baking tray and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until its golden in colour. After about 10 minutes give it a good mix and turn the tray around in the oven. Keep a close eye on it as it may cook quicker or slower depending on your oven.
  7. Remove tray from the oven and allow granola to cool on the tray
  8. Once cool, transfer to an air tight container
  9. Can store in the pantry for up to two weeks
Recipe Notes

Don't be tempted to turbo for more than 3 seconds. I did this once and the texture was far too fine.
