I never thought these 15PAW granolas are going to last for more than a month.
But when I returned home yesterday, I was jumping for joy when I realised it was still edible.
Yep, no kidding. These babies that I baked nearly two months ago still tastes fresh out of the oven.
It’s also high in mono and polyunsaturated fats, omega-3s and fibre. It’s a win for your digestive system and brain.
And it tastes incredibly awesome just by itself.
Anyway, today I’ll be sharing the recipe for the granola, which happens to be one of the 78 recipes in my book – The Healthy Asian.
And then I will share the little instructions on how I made the crunch parfait. Guess it’s not a recipe but more like a put this first and then that.
So first, here’s the recipe for the Pretty Awesome Granola. It serves about 15-20.
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup pecans, chopped
- ½ cup shredded coconut
- ½ cup coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup pure honey
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 cup dried berries/fruits
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 300°C.
- Add all ingredients to a large microwavable bowl, except the dried berries/fruits.
- Mix well. If the honey is thick, heat up in the microwave for about 30 seconds and mix well.
- Spread mixture on a baking sheet lined tray and bake for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally to help it not burn.
- When you pull it out of the oven, mix in dried fruit.
Let it cool and store it in an airtight container. It should last for weeks, like it did for me.
When you’re feeling it, at anytime for breakfast or whenever you have a sugar craving, toss these granola together with some frozen berries and natural Greek yogurt.
I got mine out here:
- 1 tub, 200ml natural Greek yogurt. I use Farmers Union. You can get it at Cold Storage.
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries, run under water
- 45g Pretty Awesome Granola
I poured 1/4 of the yogurt as the base, 1/2 the granola and berries in the middle layer, followed by the rest of the yogurt and granola and berries.
Tastes like summer. Enjoy!
