Granola is one of those breakfasts that take no time to throw together, they’re quite healthy depending on the types you make or buy and they’re super tasty and fresh for the hot summer months.

With my husband working in aviation where he usually has very early mornings he needs a breakfast that will both fill him up and be very quick to put together. Usually, we buy granola from the stores or bulk food stores, but I wanted to try my hand at making it myself where I had more control with what goes into the mix. Adding a booster of protein helps to keep my hunger curbed for longer and can help sustain me through a long work morning.

The blueprint of making granola is pretty simple

Once you have that down, you can have fun making blends that you really enjoy. This pumpkin protein blend is my favourite so far.

METHOD:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Prep a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. De-core and chop your apple into small, bite-sized pieces. Spread evenly onto the baking sheet and pop it in the oven for approximately 15min or until you’re done prepping the dry ingredients.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients together in one large bowl. Mix together thoroughly then add the apple pieces and mix again*It’s important to add the apple pieces after the protein powder has been combined otherwise the powder sticks to the apple without mixing in with the other ingredients)
  4. Add the honey, and seed butter. Mix it thoroughly. It should all clump together without being too sticky or too dry.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly on the lined baking sheet, and bake for about 20min or until it’s golden brown with slightly toasted edges.
  6. Let it cool and once it’s room temperature, break it apart and store it in an air-tight container.

Make your own homemade granola! It's a simple recipe that is fun to personalize for your own specific taste. Here's my Protein Pumpkin Granola recipe.

Most of the time we like to have our granola with yoghurt and fresh fruit, but it’s also great with some nut milk, fresh berries and a teaspoon of seed or nut butter. OR I even like having it dry as a snack. My mood constantly changes. How do you like having your granola?
