A nice bowl of crunchy granola is exactly what you need to start the day right. Even more so if it packs nourishing ingredients that will satisfy you from the inside out. So, give our wholesome cashew butter granola a try, and you won't go back to the store-bought one!
Crispy cereals and roasted nuts are what make granola everyone's breakfast favourite. But most of the granola you find at the supermarket is loaded with refined sugars, syrups, and salt, making it a not-so-healthy choice. Instead, preparing homemade granola is cheap and easy, giving you complete control over the ingredients.
All you need to make this cashew butter granola are jumbo oats, raw quinoa, flaxseeds, and cashew nuts. Mix them with mashed bananas, warm cashew butter and then slow-bake them until golden. A final sprinkle of chewy raisins, and there you have it, the healthiest granola ever!
Ingredients like honey, brown sugar and oil make the classic granola sweet and crunchy but rather unhealthy if eaten every day. To make our recipe as wholesome as possible, instead, we swapped sugar with ripe bananas and oil with cashew butter. These ingredients have a fraction of the sugars and fats, and they also add fibres, proteins, vitamins, and minerals.
We paired jumbo oats with raw quinoa for extra plant-based proteins, but feel free to use only oats or swap it with buckwheat or puffed rice instead. The best thing about this recipe is that you can mix and match your preferred fruit, nuts, and grains, crafting your favourite granola!
So, why not make a big batch to keep at hand for the whole week? You can scatter these crunchy clusters over yogurt, add them to fresh milk, pair them with chopped fruit, or turn them into energy bars. Another option is to snack on them right from the jar for the ultimate crunchiness!
