Vegan Gluten-free Nut & seed granola!

This morning, I invented this lovely nut & seed granola. I thought why not invent a lovely granola without oats or quinoa? So, this is what I created:

MMM!
MMM!

I wanted to use different types of nuts & textures. I happen to have lots of sunflower seeds which I absolutely love. So, I used 3 types of nuts & 3 types of seeds.

Let’s see this beautiful tasty granola in a lovely bowl?

MMM!
MMM!

And this is 10 minutes in eating our breakfast, when the maple syrup is going off in to the cold soy milk,…Super yummy! 🙂

MMM,...Maple soy milk!
MMM,…Maple soy milk!

Recipe: For a whole lot of granola

Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup  (135 gr) sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons broken flaxseed

2 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon ( Do not use more otherwise it is overpowering!!!)

1/2 cup (36 gr) white almond flakes

1/2 cup (20 gr) whole hazelnuts

1/2 cup (70 gr)  whole cashews

Wet ingredients:

1/2 cup (125 ml) maple syrup

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Otherwise, adjust your oven to the right temperature. Take a large roasting tin & smear in with vegan butter & up the sides a bit too. Push your baking paper well into it.
  2. Take your food processor & place S-blade in. Add hazelnuts & cashews. Place lid on & pulse until crumbled up.
  3. Take a big bowl & add all of the dry ingredients. So, add sunflower seeds, broken flaxseed, chia seeds, cinnamon, white almond flakes, chopped hazelnuts & chopped cashews. Mix well with a spoon. 
  4. Add wet ingredient, aka maple syrup to the bowl of dry ingredients & mix well with a spoon. See that every ingredient has been coated with the maple syrup.  Spread the granola mix all over the base of the roasting pan, on top of the baking paper so that all is evenly divided into 1 layer.
  5. Roast your granola for 15 minutes in total but after each 5 minutes, take the pan out of the oven & turn the granola over with a spoon to prevent burning on one side & for an equal bake. So after 5 minutes into the oven, stir through granola & put back into the hot oven. After 5 minutes more, that is in total after 10 minutes, do the same. Lower your heat if you need to. 15 minutes have passed & my granola was ready & equally browned & roasted! Your house will smell amazing!!! Just look at the lovely home-made granola. Leave into the tin for about 30 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir granola through & see that it doesn’t stick to the baking paper. When completely cool, store into a lovely glass jar. Enjoy! 🙂 I ate a small bowl of granola with cold unsweetened soy milk straight from the fridge,….Super delicious! It gave me energy for 4-5 hours! 🙂 Really!  xxx This also makes a lovely food gift!  A lovely Food Gift ! :)This granola is something different because it has no oats or quinoa or dried fruit in it! Enjoy, sweeties! 🙂 xxx

This granola is not so sweet, just the way I like it. My husband thought this was the best granola, I ever made! He gave it 10/10! xxx This would be an ideal food gift!

Recipe :For a whole lot granola

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup gluten-free medium-sized oat flakes (not instant!) (100 gr)

1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon white uncooked quinoa (100 gr)

1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon red uncooked quinoa (50 gr)

1/4 heaped cup whole hazelnuts (50 gr)

1/2 cup white almond flakes (50 gr)

1/8 cup +1/2 teaspoon sunflower seeds (20 gr)

2 tablespoons broken flaxseed

2 teaspoons black chia seeds or white

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup maple syrup, grade C (125 ml)

To add after roasting:

1/2 cup jumbo red raisins (85 gr)

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350 F ) for 10 minutes.

2. Take a chopping board & a big knife. Chop your hazelnuts into smaller pieces. Take a large bowl & add all the dry ingredients, so add oat flakes, white quinoa, red quinoa, chopped hazelnuts, almond flakes, sunflower seeds, broken flaxseed, chia seeds & cinnamon. Do not add more cinnamon!!!  You want a hint of it not full on cinnamon, otherwise it is too overpowering! Mix well with a larger spoon.

3. Add wet ingredient aka maple syrup grade C to the bowl of dry combined ingredients. Mix well with a spoon. Take a larger non-stick oven pan & dot with vegan butter, on the bottom & on all the sides. Press your baking paper in it. Divide your granola all in 1 layer in it. Spread it all evenly out. Roast into the hot oven for about 13-15 ,minutes. After each 5 minutes, take the tray out of the oven & stir everything round into the pan for an equal bake & to prevent burning. Do this again after 10 minutes. Watch your granola carefully! You don’t want it to burn! My granola was ready after 13 minutes. Your house will smell amazing & your granola will be golden brown!

4. With oven gloves on, take it out of the oven. Place it on a rack to cool down. When it is cooled off, add your dried jumbo red raisins & stir everything round. When cooled off, store in a lovely pot with fitted lid. My husband & I ate a bowl o granola when it was still a bit warm , with cold soy milk, straight from the fridge! Very yum too! x

Sophie’s Gluten-Free & Vegan Christmas granola!

I adore making granola. You can find a lot of unhealthy granola recipes on the internet. I experimented with other recipes & I came up with this one. This is my favorite granola recipe. My husband & my family loves it!
I call this one a Christmas recipe, because there are red dried cranberries & green pumpkin seeds in it. They are the primal colours of Christmas.

It is lovely enjoyed with some vegan coconut yoghurt or soy yoghurt or a vegan nut milk.

MMM! This would make an ideal Christmas gift!!!
MMM! This would make an ideal Christmas gift!!!

Yum yum Yum,…Let’s see How I made it!

Recipe: For a whole lot of granola!

Ingredients:

230 gr. medium Gluten-Free oat flakes( not the large big ones, but the full GF oat flakes, but a little bit smaller.)

70 gr. pecans, broken in to pieces

45 gr. pumpkin seeds

1 + 1/2 teaspoons of a good vanilla extract ( I use home-made )

1 tablespoon flaxseed

60 ml. canola oil

80 ml. maple syrup
To add after roasting into the hot oven:
50 gr. raisins, cut up

30 gr. dried not so sweet cranberries, cut up

Method:

1. Preheat the oven on 180 ° Celsius. ( 350 F )
2. Take a large bowl & put the GF oat flakes, pecans & pumpkin seeds in it. Mix well. Add 1 tablespoon of flaxseed to it. Mix well.
3. In another bowl, mix canola oil with the maple syrup. Add vanilla extract. Stir good.
4. Put the ingredients of bowl 1 into bowl 2 & mix well.
5. Take a non-stick roasting tin & spread out evenly in to the roasting tin.
6. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes until all crisp.
7. Every 5 minutes or so, you have to stir everything around, so that it will be crisp on every side.
Otherwise, it will burn on one side & it wouldn’t be crisp on the other side.
8.Bake until everything is golden & ready.
9. When it is ready, turn the oven off. Take out of the oven & let it cool off completely.
10. When it is all cooled of, place it in a bowl & add the dried fruit. You can choose whatever fruit you want, but I like this combination.
11. So, I added the dried cranberries & dried raisins & mixed it with a spoon through the granola.
12. Store in an airtight storage box. Enjoy!!! xxx
