Coconut and apricot granola
Start the day right with a bowl of crunchy, homemade granola.
Dry rolled oats
3 cup(s), (270g)
Vanilla bean extract
Shredded or desiccated coconut
¼ cup(s), (20g)
160 g, (buy diced variety)
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the oats, almonds and pepitas in a large bowl and drizzle with the maple syrup, oil and vanilla. Mix to combine.
- Spread the mixture into a large roasting pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Stir and cook for a further 5 minutes.
- Add the coconut, stirring to combine, and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the mixture is golden brown. Set aside to cool completely.
- Mix in the apricot and cranberries and store in an airtight container.
SERVING SUGGESTION: 99% fat-free plain yoghurt (contains dairy) and a fresh fruit salad of banana, strawberries and passionfruit. TIP: For a simple dessert, sprinkle this crunchy muesli over stewed fruit – think cheats crumble!
