You know I am a breakfast person. Without a decent breakfast I cannot function. During the week we usually have muesli, granola or porridge for breakfast with fresh fruit, a cup of tea and a fresh juice or smoothie.

A decent granola with lots of nuts is a good thing to get you started in the morning. Why not make granola yourself for a change? It’s not that difficult at all and you can put in all the stuff you like. This is a recipe for a classic granola mixture with almonds, walnuts, coconut and cranberries. It tastes super good with greek yoghurt and fresh figs.

Homemade granola can also be a nice gift (Christmas!). Personalize the granola mixture according to what friends and family like and put it in a pretty glass jar with a ribbon. They will love it.

Here are some ideas for variations:
– cocoa nibs
– brazil nuts
– cashews
– pumpkin or sunflower seeds
– dried apricots
– dried mango
– raisins
– sweetened with maple syrup or honey
– spiced up with cinnamon or cardamom

Always toss in the dried fruit after the granola has been baked in the oven.

What you need for one batch:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flakes
  • 1/2 cup rice flakes
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried, shredded coconut
  • 1/2 – 1 cup agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the rolled oats, buckwheat and rice flakes, nuts and dried coconut in a large bowl. If you can’t find buckwheat or rice flakes, use a larger amount of classic rolled oats. Add the agave syrup until evenly incorporated. Place everything on a baking tray and bake for about twenty minutes. About every five minutes toss and turn everything around. Then allow the mixture to cool down and add the cranberries. Mix well.
