Making home made granola is so easy and convenient. It only requires a few minutes of your time and then it takes care of itself in the oven. Not to mention that is that much more price worthy than buying the expensive ones in the store. This granola is a vegan, gluten, grain and sugar free granola that also is low carb. I used almonds and coconut flakes as the main base and then added all my favorite seeds, some cashew nuts and seasoned it with vanilla, a little bit of cinnamon and sea salt. I also added dried cranberries just because I love adding something a bit more chew and sweet to my granolas. This granola is really easy to adapt according to preferences and taste. You can easily use the nuts that you prefer and have at home. And you can add any add-ins you want or just make it plain.
A few tips:
- You can swap the almonds for any nuts you prefer or like.
- I like to heat up the fiber syrup a little bit before combining it with the nuts and seeds, just because it makes it easier to distribute evenly.
- The baking time may vary a bit depending on your oven. Bake the granola until it’s golden brown.
- If using cranberries don’t add them in the beginning of the baking time. Add them after approximately 20 minutes, otherwise they will burn or get very dark and dry.
- Store the granola in a clean airtight jar.
- The granola is good to store for up to three months.
