As a Coeliac, I find it so hard to find gluten free granolas in the supermarket that aren’t full of sugar or being sold for a ridiculous price. I LOVE to snack on granola, so much so that I have been known to eat an entire bag in the space of an hour over work (terrible I know, but when it tastes so good how can you not?!).
Cacao Peanut Granola
This recipe is perfect with your favourite milk and fresh banana slices, as a topper for yoghurt or a crumble, or as a snack out of the jar! It isn’t greasy so don’t be worried about eating it as a snack!
- 100g jumbo oats
- 30g chia seeds
- 60g mixed seeds
- 25g peanuts
- 1 tsp carob powder
- 1 tsp cacao powder
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 80g flame raisins
- 40g coconut oil
- 50g honey / date nectar / maple syrup
- Pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Add the nuts and chia seeds to your blender and pulse until roughly chopped.
Add all dry ingredients [excluding raisins] into a bowl and mix until well combined.
Add the melted coconut oil and date nectar into the bowl and stir until all the oats are coated.
Pour onto the tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 10-12 minutes until the oats are just starting to turn golden. Remove from oven and stir in the raisins.
Return to the oven for 10 minutes until the granola is well toasted.
Leave to cool before serving!
Store in a sealed jar/container for up to 4 weeks.
