Granola

I’ve been making homemade granola for about a year now. I started making it to control what went into my food, and to reduce food and packaging waste. My first recipe was a Honey and Almond Granola. This is still a classic that I make regularly. However, it has taken a back seat since I started making this Easy Homemade Maple Pecan Granola.

The idea for Easy Homemade Pecan Granola recipe started after I made my last batch of Sticky Maple and Pecan Cinnamon Rolls. I had some left over maple syrup and pecans. I hate wasting food so I started thinking of other recipes to use up the leftovers. Straight away I knew this would be my favourite granola. Sweet and nutty with a good crunch, what’s not to love? It has a delicious warmth from the maple and spices, making it perfect for a crisp autumn morning.

Granola is really simple and fast to make. A midweek breakfast that can be made, and enjoyed, by all of the family. It’s comforting to know you can make something healthy, with wholesome ingredients, and reduce food and packaging waste at the some time.

The Sticky Maple and Pecan Cinnamon Rolls are incredible for weekend breakfast treat. If you haven’t made them yet you are missing out! Follow the link to the recipe and make them next weekend.

Yogurt

I am officially a homemade yogurt enthusiast. Another product you can make at home. Like my Easy Homemade Maple Pecan Granola you can make a staple food product and choose what ingredients to put in, or more importantly, what to leave out!

It takes about 9 hours to produce a litre of yogurt, the hands on time is very minimal. The Yogurt Machine I purchased makes the process really simple, you simply turn it on and forget about the yogurt for 8 hours. The flavour and texture of homemade yogurt is certainly worth the wait. It’s very satisfying topping it with your own homemade granola.
