So if you knew me in my pre-dairy free days, you would know that one of my FAVORITE things was yogurt with granola and fresh fruit!
I NEVER buy soy yogurt because it’s so expensive, but the other day a 12 pack was on sale for under $5!! I get this brand – and it’s very tasty!
So I had this 12 pack of “yogurt” so I KNEW I needed some granola to go with it!
Voilà - I made some and it was perfect!
Empty the Pantry, Dairy Free Granola!
I call this empty the pantry, because I pretty much just used anything I had little bits of!!
2 cups oats
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup dry millet
1/2 cup dry buck wheat oats
Preheat the oven to 350.
Mix all above ingredients into a large bowl
Add to the mix;
1 TBSP Mesquite (optional)
1 TBSP Lucuma (optional)
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 TBSP vanilla
1/8 cup oil
1/4 cup liquid sweetener – I used maple syrup.
Mix together – taste and adjust flavours – you may want to add some salt to the mix too!
Put mixture on a baking sheet – and bake for 10 minutes
After 10 minutes flip granola and pop back into oven.
At this point – watch the granola so it doesn’t burn. After about 5 minutes – I turned off the oven and just let the granola sit in the hot oven for a couple hours!
It came out perfect and crunchy!
The buckwheat grouts and millet added an awesome crunch and the mesquite and Lucuma added a really satisfying flavour (as well as boosted the nutritional stats!)
This granola would be great to wrap up as a gift for someone too!! It should last awhile in an airtight container!!
Do you have a favourite granola recipe?
I’ve noticed a bit of a fade in the 30 miles in 30 days challenge! Don’t loose hope!
I know though, I’m having a hard time with it too – because I am doing so many fitness classes at work – I’m tired when I get home and want to just hang out! But we can still keep going! We are only on week 2~~~ So feel free to join still!!
