My Nutrition Reboot course started yesterday. One of the first things I like to talk about is breakfast. Starting the day on the right track is important for so many things but especially energy levels, mood, and the impact that eating well has on the rest of your day.
Let's face it we all get stuck in a rut so why don't you try something new today, it really is a delicious and nourishing way to start your day.
The easiest way to make this is to get yourself a lovely big glass jar & fill it up with all the dry ingredients so you have the right amount to put back into your jar after baking.
I like to make half oats & half all other ingredients, ensuring there is plenty of protein & good fats in my breakfast granola. You can use any variety of nuts, seeds, coconut that you like, but for approximate amounts follow the recipe below.
200g porridge oats (if you are gluten-free then use gluten free oats)
2 tbsps sunflower seeds
2 tbsps pumpkin seeds
2 tbsps chopped hazelnuts and / or walnuts and /or pecans
2 tbsps flaked or ground almonds or other grounds seeds
2 tbsps sesame seeds
2 tbsps chia seeds
2 tbsps flaxseeds
2 tbsps buckwheat puffs (optional but lovely flavour & texture)
2 tbsps coconut flakes, or desiccated coconut also fine
2 heaped tbsps coconut oil
2 tbsps date syrup, or honey, or other syrup that you might have
1 -2 tsps ground cinnamon
In a large saucepan melt coconut oil, syrup & cinnamon. Add in the dry ingredients & mix well.
Spread on a baking tray & bake at 150 degrees celsius turning the granola over every 10 mins. Bake for 30 mins or until brown. Leave to cool.
Put into your glass jar or other container.
Eat for breakfast with a spoonful of natural yoghurt & some fruit such as berries or banana
