This past Monday I made a batch of granola because #mealprep. Just kidding, I get bored too easily to do mealprep. But, due to my new job I’ve been waking up at 5am for a couple of days and I need something fast to eat that’s also nourishing. Also something that I can pop into a baggy and keep in my bag for hangry pangs. Lo and behold the flax granola.
What you’ll need: 🥣
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- 2 cups of golden flax seeds
- 1/2 cup pine nuts (or pumpkin seeds if you have a nut allergy)
- 1/4 sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup poppy seeds
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 pinch of chili powder
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups of honey
Preheat the oven to 300°F/148°C. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients until the honey is spread all over and the consistency is not sticky. In a parchment lined baking tray, add the mixture and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
After it’s fully baked and golden, let it cool for about 10 minutes and transfer to a storing jar. Eat it as a snack or for breakfast! I had it with kefir for breakfast and topped it with blueberries. It’s sweet and savory and so good for you.
