Make your own Protein Granola for a delicious, balanced breakfast that is still fast and convenient to throw together week day mornings.
Making your own also means that you control the amount of sugar that goes in – in this recipe we use Maple Syrup or Honey.
Not only is this a high protein, low sugar breakfast – it is also high in fiber and has loads of nutritional benefits from the nuts, seeds, oats and fruit.
Multiplying the recipe is recommended – as you can store the granola in an airtight container and it will keep for weeks.
Granola is easy and fun to make, so get the kids involved and make a weekend activity out of it.
Either make a plain granola and add nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chocolate bits, toasted grains – whatever you like! – afterwards so you can have variations throughout the week.
Or, if you prefer, simply add everything to your granola mix before baking it. If you do this, we suggest adding a tablespoon or two of Olive Oil so the mix isn’t too dry, and to help with toasting.
