It is hard not to love cereal, the crunchy clusters, combined with the cold milk. It is a breakfast staple for so many and yet the supermarket brands generally contain a silly amount of carbs and added sugars, with unrealistic portion suggestions. So here's my recipe for spiced apple granola clusters, free from any grains or gluten. They are also dairy free. You can either break them in to clusters or have them as simple granola. They are so easy to make (cooking time under 10 minutes) and with a dash of milk this will turn even the most hardened granola lover. If milk isn't your thing, then try serving it on some greek yoghurt or just pop in a pot and take along with you for a snack.
- mixed seeds (130g)
- dried apple (40g)
- mixed nuts (100g)
- coconut oil (2 tsp)
- cinnamon (1.5tsp)
- raw honey (1 tbsp)
- ground flaxseed (1 tbsp)
Preheat oven to 180�C.
On to a lined baking sheet place 3/4 of the mixed seeds, ground flax see and cinnamon, mix well.
In to a blender place the rest of the mixed seeds, mixed nuts and dried apple. Blitz until all crumbled.
Placed onto the same baking sheet and mix with the seeds / cinnamon/ flax seeds.
In a pan over high heat melt coconut oil.
Add raw honey (or other natural sweet syrup) and mix in to coconut oil (don't worry if they separate).
Transfer on to baking sheet and coat granola. Spread out and press down - as this will turn the granola into clusters later on.
Place in to oven for 8-10 minutes (Keep an eye on it!!) as soon as it starts to smell strong and has turned a deep golden brown remove from oven and leave to cool on side for about 20 minutes.
Once it has cooled break it up and place in to an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. You can double or triple the ingredients, depending on how much you need.
Serve with cold milk, raspberries, blueberries, raw chocolate chunks, coconut etc.
