April 15 2016

What you'll need: (16 servings)

675g oats

300g puffed rice

85g oat bran

4 tsp cinnamon

210ml low sugar pineapple juice

150ml low sugar apple juice

150g Sukrin Gold all-natural sweetener

40ml coconut oil

55g toasted hazelnuts

55g sunflower seeds

55g flax seeds

225g Total 0% fat free Greek yoghurt – to be served with each portion

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 °C.

For granola liquid: In a medium sized saucepan add the pineapple juice, apple juice, Sukrin Gold and coconut oil. Bring this mix to the boil and continue to simmer so the liquid begins to reduce and thicken. Allow to cool slightly.

For granola: In a big mixing bowl combine the oats, puffed rice, oat bran and cinnamon. When the granola liquid has cooled, mix through the oats mix.

Line a baking tray with non-stick paper and evenly spread the mix about half an inch thick. Cook in oven for 35-40 mins, keep an eye that it doesn't burn. Give it a good mix every 5-10 mins. Continue cooking if the mix still feels a little soggy.

When cooked leave to cool, break up into chunk’s and mix in the hazelnuts, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. Store in an air tight container.

To serve: Add 1 portion to a bowl and serve with some Greek yogurt and some fresh berries.
