Breakfast is an important meal for a lot of people. Of course, it’s easy to miss out on it if you’re always rushed in the morning. Studies have shown that eating breakfast will keep you slim, balance out your moods, keep your brain functioning clearly and give you energy.
Granola is a very tasty and healthy breakfast. It’s satisfying and filling. However, the granola that comes from the store is often full of oil and all kinds of weird and unnecessary stuff. It can also be very expensive!
Here is a quick and simple recipe that you can make any time with very few ingredients. It’s nothing fancy, but it tastes very good with some homemade yogurt on top.
- 4 C. Oatmeal (you can use instant if it’s all you have)
- 1 C. peanuts
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 t. Cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- 1 C. Honey (more or less, depending how sweet you like it)
Preheat oven to 300°. Mix oatmeal and peanuts in a large bowl. Add salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix thoroughly. Add honey and stir until the oats and nuts well covered. Pour mixture onto baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, and stir every 10 minutes while its baking. Store in an airtight container.
Optionally, you could also add a handful of sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, or any nuts you have around. You can add any granola-like ingredient you can think of.
