From a simple breakfast to an on-the-go snack, it doesn't get much easier (or nutritious) than granola. Store aisles are lined with pre-made varieties, but making your own mix at home allows you to control everything from the ingredients you use to the overall taste. Here's our take on a simple granola - with just the right amount of sweet.
In a large mixing bowl, mix up:
2 cups oats
1 cup chopped / slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chia & flax seeds
1 tsp sea salt
On the stove in a saucepan, on medium heat:
3/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp vanilla
3 tbsp sunflower oil
Slowly stir the warm mixture into the dry ingredients, letting it clump up and making sure to coat everything. Spread across a baking sheet (lightly oiled) and bake at 300 degrees for 40 mins. Shake/flip occasionally for even cooking. Let cool 20 minutes, then pour back into mixing bowl. Add raisins. Store in an airtight container.
