Monday Munchies: Home Made Granola

Today's Monday Munchies recipe is for my budget friendly and no added sugar granola.

Granola can be one of those foods you consider healthy when in fact it's packed full of sugar. Making your own granola at home is so simple, everyone should be doing it.

Whether you snack on it or sprinkle some over your Greek Yogurt, this granola provides you with healthy fats and a hint of sweetness without the extra calories.

Ingredients - 

200g Granny Smith Apple
220g Oats
100g Slivered Almonds
100g Cashews
75g Sunflower Seeds
75g Pepitas
60g Rice Malt Syrup
50ml Water

Directions - 

  1. Stew the apples with cinnamon (as much as you like) and water, simmering until the apples have softened. Blend to a puree and pass through a sieve. Place in the fridge until ready for use.
  2. Mix the oats and nuts together, slowly adding the apple juice mixture. Then add the rice malt syrup and stir well to ensure all the mixture is covered. 
  3. Spread out on a lined baking tray then place in a 180 degree celcius oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring at the half way point.
  4. Store the granola in a air tight container. 
Makes 33 serves.
