Nuts and Seeds Granola

One of the best recipes is healthy Granola Nuts & Seeds. I really love this recipe so much that I made it so many times and I have been thinking of sharing it with you all today. Homemade granola, because they are high in sugar, contain unhealthy fats, oils and contains preservatives, is healthier, more comfortable and more delicious than the store. I’m sure you won’t get back to the shop to buy granola once you try home-made granola.

Nuts & Seeds Granola is an awesome breakfast or snack when you are on the go. Even you can take this granola along with you. Put granola in a ziplock bag or in your lunch box and here you go. Flax Peanut Butter Energy Bites, Orange Coconut Macaroons, Oats & Raisins Loaf Cake, Chocolate Banana Bread, Nuts and Seeds Chocolate Granola is also a great option for breakfast or snack. 

Making your own granola at home is super easy, you’ll only need a bowl to add ingredients what you like in your granola. Granola also can be stored in an airtight jar for weeks or can also store it in a freezer. But I make in batches so that I can add different variations every week in granola.

About Nuts & Seeds Granola Ingredients

OATS are one of the healthiest grains. I have used gluten-free rolled oats in this recipe. In fact, gluten-free whole grains are a rich source of essential vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. These also help in weight loss, reduce the risk of heart diseases and much more.

NUTS AND SEEDS

I have added nuts and seeds to my homemade granola for enhanced flavor, texture, extra nutrients and added healthy protein. Pistachio, walnuts, raw almonds, roasted peanuts, raisins, dates, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, shredded coconut flakes. These have lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, vitamins, and antioxidants.

This delicious healthy nuts and seeds granola recipe is naturally sweetened with maple syrup but if you don’t have that, then add honey. I also add unsweetened almond butter for more flavor but it is purely up to you. I have not added any oil in this granola because I want to keep it oil-free, but if you want you can add coconut oil.

Nuts and Seeds Granola Tips and Tricks

I like big chunks of granola, if you also like that then you need to follow this

  • Oats need to be a little crowded in the baking sheet so they can stick together, make sure not to overcrowd otherwise they don’t toast evenly.
  • Make sure to line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Gently press down on the granola with the flat spatula after stirring the mixture in between baking. Then put them back into the oven.
  • Don’t bake the granola too long—just until it’s lightly golden on top. It might not seem like it’s done yet, but it will crisp as it cools.
  • Let the granola cool completely before breaking it up. Left it on the baking sheet for a few hours.

Recipe note:-

  1. I have used gluten free rolled oats you can use any kind of oats you prefer.
  2. If you prefer a Nut Free version: Than add seeds, like pumpkin seeds or s]\unflower seeds, chia seeds instead of nuts.
  3. Stir the coconut flakes into the granola halfway through baking. They’ll get nice and toasty if you like toasted.
  4. This granola is awesome on its own, but you can serve with milk, Greek yogurt, and fresh fruits or you can simply throw on top of your smoothie bowl.
