Maple Cinnamon Granola

My partner eats cereal by the bucket load and sadly for my budget he has expensive tastes. In a bid to save some money and also eat healthier I thought I would make my own Granola. I love that I know exactly what is in this and I have saved a lot of money. It cost me $8.25 to make just shy of 2.5kg of the mix compared to $4 for $620g of the store bought variety. I could do it even cheaper by buying ingredients from Costco and health food store. 
 


Bec from Becs Healthy Cooking Show inspired me to make some after watching her YouTube clip. be sure to subscribe to her channel. she has a lot of great recipes. This is my take on her Granola.

Ingredients
  1. 500g oats
  2. 150g almonds
  3. 150g pepitas
  4. 150g sunflower kernals
  5. 350g sultanas
  6. 200g apricots, diced
  7. 150g shredded coconut
  8. 50g chia seeds
  9. 40g ground cinnamon, to taste (my partner loves the stuff!)
  10. 1 cup of coconut oil
  11. 40g maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place almonds into bowl and blitz on speed 7 until slight crushed. This is to taste.
  3. In a large dish combine cinnamon, oats, nuts, pepitas and sunflower kernals.
  4. In the bowl add oil and maple syrup.
  5. Mix at 50 degrees, speed 2 until melted. This shouldn’t take too long.
  6. Pour over the oat mixture. Use hands or spoon to mix well.
  7. Spread mixture across two large ovenproof dishes or trays lined with baking paper.
  8. Place into the oven. I had to cook mine for 45 minutes to get a nice golden colour – you make more or less colour. The trick is to just watch it. Stir the mixture every 10 minutes or so to avoid any burnt bits.
  9. Once almost done, add the coconut and mix. Cook for 5 minutes or until coconut is slightly toasted.
  10. Remove from oven. Add dried fruit and chia seeds to mix. Stir.
  11. Once cool, store in a jar or airtight container.
