About this Recipe
By: Amanda Higgins
This granola was inspired and adapted from a recipe by Jasmine Tyler on YouTube. My daughter found it and started making it as she is vegan. I have decided it is too good not to share, as it so easy and delicious.
We have ours with a wonderful coconut vanilla yogurt we get here in the UK and top it with some berries. My daughter makes a delicious Nicecream with frozen banana and pops a handful of this delicious granola on top. I will have to steal that recipe and add it for everyone to try. It looks and taste amazing.
Keep a jar of this in the cupboard for a guilt free cereal.
- 3 cups of oats ( gluten free if GF)
- 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup maple sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup chopped pecan nuts
- 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat the oven to 200˚C and grease a baking tin 30x20cm.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and give it a good stir.
Melt the coconut in the microwave or on the stove top in a pot. Add the almond butter and the maple syrup to this and mix well.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients using a spoon or mix with your hands until well combined. Press this into the greased baking tin using a spoon and pat it down.
Bake in the oven for 15/20 minutes until the edges go a little brown. Be careful not to burn it. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.
Once cooled carefully break it up. It is nice to have some chunks, as well as some loose bits. Fill up a tupperware or glass jar and it will keep for a few weeks.
Use as you would a normal granola.
