Joe's Homemade Granola

Posted by Joe Wicks - 671 Days Ago in:

I always encourage people to break away from sugary cereals at breakfast and to start the day with some protein and healthy fats as much as possible. But if you love granola once in a while, give my homemade, reduced sugar recipe a go from my 90 Day SSS Plan.

 What you'll need: (16 servings)


---- 

675g oats

300g puffed rice

85g oat bran

4 tsp cinnamon

210ml low sugar pineapple juice

150ml low sugar apple juice

150g Sukrin Gold all-natural sweetener

40ml coconut oil 

55g sliced toasted almonds

55g pumpkin seeds

55g flax seeds

225g Total 0% fat free Greek yoghurt – to be served with each portion 


---- 

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 °C.

For granola liquid: In a medium sized saucepan add the pineapple juice, apple juice, sukrin gold and coconut oil. Bring this mix to the boil and continue to simmer so the liquid begins to reduce and thicken. Allow to cool slightly.

For granola: In a big mixing bowl combine the oats, puffed rice, oat bran and cinnamon. When the granola liquid has cooled, mix through the oats mix.

Line a baking tray with non-stick paper and evenly spread the mix about half an inch thick. Cook in oven for 35-40 mins, keep an eye that it doesn't burn. Give it a good mix every 5-10 mins. Continue cooking if the mix still feels a little soggy.

When cooked leave to cool, break up into chunk’s and mix in the almonds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds. Store in an air tight container.

To serve: Add 1 portion to a bowl and serve with some greek yoghurt and some fresh berries.
