Easy Granola

Granola is an american breakfast cereal, very similar to our toasted muesli, although it is often clumpy.  I came across a granola recipe on Go Dairy Free (I can’t find the link to the original recipe) using maple syrup, coconut oil and spices, but I instantly knew with a few substitutes I would have a new breakfast cereal for Oscar.  This recipe is really quick, the hardest part is leaving it in the oven for 3 hours before trying it!

4. Stir to completely coat the oats and quinoa.
5. Spread the mixture in a thin layer over the baking tray.
6. Bake for 10 minutes then turn off the oven (don't open the door) and leave the tray in the oven for 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
7. Remove from the oven and stir to break up any large clumps. Store in an airtight container.
Serve with milk / milk alternative or yogurt, and any allowed fruit.

Carob syrup can be purchased, but it is also quite easy to make your own.

Use this recipe as a base and add in other cereals or grains (e.g. puffed rice, amaranth), nuts and seeds (if allowed).
