Super Seed & Nutty Granola

A bowl of this is bursting full of protein, fibre and essential fats - nuts are one of the best ways to start the day! 
A jar of this lovely stuff will last a week.

Ingredients

  • 100 g Blanched Hazelnuts
  • 100 g Blanched Almonds
  • 100 g Sunflower Seeds
  • 100 g Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1 Banana, ripe
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 tbsp Cacao Nibs
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Pre heat the oven to 160F fan assisted/gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the hazelnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor and pulse until the nuts begin to break down being careful not to turn it all in to powder. 
  3. Put the ground seed & nut mixture in a bowl together with the pumpkin seeds.
  4. Place the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and mix until it becomes a paste.
  5. Mix the paste together with the seeds and nuts and spread out on to the lined baking tray.
  6. Place in the oven for 15 mins, then remove and mix being sure to break the larger clusters (this helps crisp the batch evenly).
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool down.
  8. Grate the zest of one orange, mix to combine and place in Kilner jar until you're ready to enjoy a bowl full.

My take on a heavenly nut & seed granola, with some extra crunch from cocao nibs – you’ve got to make a batch, it leaves the most delicious smell throughout the house. It’s a regular for me at breakfast, particularly on those days when I’m heading out for a run, it’s got enough goodness to keep me going for that little bit longer. I like to mix with oats and almond milk, and finally sprinkled with blueberries and some orange zest. The perfect start to my day!
