Coconut Granola/Muesli

muesliI’ve been making this granola for the past few months now. Making your own granola is so much better than buying it, you know exactly what went in it and you can adjust the ingredients and sweetness to your liking. I’m not so sure you could call this a granola, it’s more of a coconut flavored muesli. It is great with any nut milk and you can add different seeds or dried fruit to the original recipe, use what you have and experiment with different ingredients.
The coconut oil I think is perfect because it gives it a sort of light taste to it, instead of using normal olive oil.

Ingredients(dry):
– 2 cups rolled oats
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 pinch of salt
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/4 cup almonds, chopped
-1/4 flax seeds
-1/4 cranberries

Ingredients(wet):
-2 tbls coconut oil
-1 tbls maple syrup
-1 tbls rice syrup (or if you don’t have it use maple syrup)muesli 3

Preheat the oven on 300 (150° celsius).
In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil with the syrups, until they have melted completely (about 2 minutes). Put the oats, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, almonds, flax seeds into a bowl and pour over all of the liquid mixture. Mix well, then line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the oats, the thinner the layer the better. Put in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Then add to the oats the cranberries.
you can store the granola into an airtight container for two weeks.

VARIATIONS:
into the oat mixture you could add chia seeds, sunflower feeds, chopped walnuts, chopped hazelnuts etc.
After you cook them you can add other dried fruit: goji berries, mulberries, coconut flakes, banana chips etc.oats2
This was oats, flax seeds, chia seeds baked in the same wet ingredients, then I added goji berries, coconut flakes, mulberries and cranberries…perfect combo 🙂
