I love granola, I really do. Whilst in Vancouver, my cousin fuelled my love for granola. Everyday we would have strawberries, half a banana, a few spoonfuls of granola and a dollop of yogurt or two. After coming home I found that my bowl breakfast (specially prepared by Tim) was just too much for my little tummy. So we googled for paleo granola but most of which needed a Vitamix (which I’m so getting when we’re back in our own apartment). But then Tim came across CheekyKitchen’s Happy Paleo Granola recipe and I was floored.
We bought the ingredients but made a few little changes:
- I used raisins instead of cranberries (because I’m not really a fan of cranberries and we had raisins already)
- I used dates instead of dried blueberries (because every other dried fruit packet had added sugar)
- I didn’t use vanilla bean because it was a little too expensive
- I didn’t use the pumpkin spice partly because I’ve never had it and in the event I do ended up loving it I have a feeling it’s not available in Australia.
Despite the changes and accidentally adding a little too much honey, the granola turned out so well! We want to make them last as long as possible so we just add a few spoonfuls to our breakfast and sometimes as a snack.
I do love granola and I love cooking it even more!
