I don´t make granola so often and don´t eat it so often, but a couple of weeks ago I was craving for an Acai-bowl. If you eat it the brazilian way you should add some granola on the top. I realized I really missed having granola on my rawghurts and nut milks too, so here is a granola recipe for you. In this granola, that is gluten free, I have buckwheat, millet and oats that is rich in b-vitamins and iron, but you can also use quinoa flakes, coconut flakes, just let your creativity flow. Add nuts if you want. If you are sensitive to nuts and seeds, it´s good if you soak them overnight to make them easier to digest. I added my favorite dried fruits & berries in this one (mangoes, gojies and apricots), but you can change it to your own favorite dried fruits or berries.
3 C Rolled oats, millet flakes, buckwheat flakes or other kind of flakes that you like
½ C Coconut ripple/flakes
½ C Pumpkin seeds
½ C Sesame seeds
1-1½ tbsp Cinnamon, ground
½-1 tbsp Cloves, ground
½-1 tbsp Ginger, ground
½ C Coconut oil
1-2 tbsp Coconut sugar or other sweetener of choice
½ C Water
½-1 C Dried fruits
Place the oats, flakes and seeds in a big bowl. In another bowl whisk together the spices, oil, sweetener and water. Pour the spice-mixture in the bowl with grains/seeds and mix everything well. Spread the mixture out on a baking tin and bake in 170°C/300-325ºF oven for 20 minutes or so. Stir in the mixture every now and then and make sure it doesn´t burn. The granola should be golden yellow when it´s done, so depending on your oven it can take longer time or shorter.
Let the granola cool down, and add your favorite dried fruits. I used dried mango, apricots and goji berries in this. You can also add nuts and bake them together with the granola.
