If you like oats and nuts this is for you: Easy homemade power granola for breakfast. First of all what I like most about this recipe is the irresistible smell all around the apartment while baking it and of course – the strength and energy it provides me with! My granola mixtures normally contain lots of power foods [ like goji berry, chia or flax seeds ] you could either add more of these or replace or skip any of the ingredients. There’s no danger in making anything wrong with this recipe, that’s the beauty! So far every batch turn out differently – and it’s always been tasty! So absolutely no need to stick to my ingredients list, see it more as an inspiration and follow YOUR flow 🙂
When it comes to enjoying this homemade power granola for breakfast, my recommendation is to serve it with curd or yogurt and fresh fruits, berries or puree. As this granola can be stored easily for a few weeks I normally produce one big baking tray – hence I am prepared for a few healthy [ and super quick ] morning treats. By the way, it is also a lovely and appreciated homemade gift… Last but not least: if you are a breakfast eater: also try my chia pudding 🙂
