5 Minutes Healthy Pan Granola
5 min Easy Pan Granola
perfect family cereal!
tasty healthy granola in no time? Yes, please!
You can make this one while you wait for your coffee to brew and with kids hanging of you in the kitchen (literally; real life scene ;-) ).
I’m sure you realize that, but just as a reminder: store bought granola is packed with refined sugars, high ratio of dried processed fruit (hmm, sugar) and non friendly oils that make it so irresistibly crunchy. Check it yourself - see what will you find on a granola nutrition label when you’re out shopping next time. Yes, yes, I know, it does often taste delicious… they make it that way, so you come back for more! So, do you rather have :
1) the instant pleasure with zero nutrients in it and sugar crash 1 hour later OR
2) a healthier granola with known friendly ingredients that will leave you feeling satiated and nourished?
I hope you said #2!
This quick and non-processed version of granola is perfect as a quick breakfast with milk or yoghurt or as a topping on your smoothie bowl or fruits. The serving is minimal, and just enough to fit into a large pan. It’s perfect on those days when you run out of your main granola stash, have less ingredients on hand or want to to take some fresh granola to work!
Give it a go on those weekday mornings or prep on the weekend for a portion of goodness!
Serving: approx. 4 portions
Ingredients (ball-parked, feel free to experiment)
1- 1 1/4 cups of gluten free oats @quakeroatsuk
3 tbsp pumpkin seeds
3 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp sunflower seeds (or sub any nuts)
cinnamon (be generous, yum)
1 tsp coconut oil
1.5 tbsp maple syrup
1.5 tbsp water
1 tbsp peanut butter
Put coconut oil in the pan. when all heated up, add oats and seeds. stir regularly on medium heat, watch not to burn it. meanwhile, mix the maple syrup with water and PB. you want the consistency to be thickish but still pourable.
When oats mix reach the desired crunch/ color, add the wet ingredients and stir a few times again. Switch off when the granola looks drier/ golden and crunchier (may take a 2-3 minutes). Add some other ingredients you like (e.g.: gojis, hemp seeds, raisins) and serve with milk or yoghurt. The granola can be easily kept in an air tight container for a few days.
