I love a nut granola to add to smoothies and smoothie bowls. This is super easy and makes a great snack too. It’s super healthy with the fewest of ingredients designed to make it super delicious.
200g nuts chopped – I used 80g almonds, 40g brazils, 40g cashews, 40g walnuts
100g gluten free oats
40g ground linseeds
20g ground almonds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
50ml pure maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 160C / 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix together.
Add maple syrup and fold until clusters so the mixture is well mixed.
Tip onto the baking paper on the tray and gently nudge granola into an even layer.
If possible separate it into small piles to create clusters making space between clusters to allow for air to flow through and crisp up the granola.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes turning over half way through and trying to keep clusters intact.
Bake for an additional 5-15 minutes, until edges are a deep golden brown and granola is just slightly soft. Don’t over bake or the nuts will burn.
Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool for about 30 minutes, or until completely cooled. If you feel you’ve over cooked it, remove from the tray immediately as it will keep cooking with the residual heat of the tray.
Store in an airtight jar and enjoy it added to smoothies, shakes and smoothie bowls, as a topping for yogurt, ice cream etc
