protein granola

Warning: this granola is highly addictive! Low GI, low carbohydrate and packed with protein, this granola is guaranteed to sustain your energy levels through the morning. It is also much cheaper than the store bought varieties.

 

SERVES – 1


1 Breakfast serve = 45g or ½ cup                        

Protein amount: 6 g (add milk/yoghurt = 12g protein which the same amount of protein as 2 eggs!)

Snack serve: ¼ cup with ½ cup yoghurt

 

INGREDIENTS


  • 200g rolled oats

  • 200g raw almonds

  • 100g  pumpkin seeds

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • zest from 1 orange

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

  • 50 g (2 Tbsp) honey or pure maple syrup, warmed

 

METHOD


Preheat a fan forced oven to 120°C (250°F).

Combine oats, almonds, pumpkin seed, cinnamon and orange zest in a large bowl.

Pour warmed honey or maple syrup and vanilla into the dry ingredients and mix through well until oats and nuts are well coated.

Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

Divide the granola onto the trays and evenly spread the mixture out into one layer. Avoid piling up the granola on the tray as this keeps the granola crunchy and less likely to become soggy.

Place the trays in preheated, fan forced oven and bake for approximately 1 hour or until golden brown. Continue to check muesli and give it mix now and then to prevent burning.

Once baked, cool muesli on trays until crunchy. Store in an air tight container.

Serve ½ cup with milk of your choice e.g., dairy, soy, almond, rice and/or a few tablespoons of natural yoghurt or coconut yoghurt
