Home Made Breakfast Granola Recipe
Breakfast granola with rolled oats, dry fruits and nuts, combined with apple puree or orange juice
Home Made Breakfast Granola Recipe is one of the most simplest, wholesome and nourishing breakfast you can have to kick start your day! A perfect change to the ready cereals in the market and more healthy as well. The first time I had these was when I was at a retreat in a yoga ashram. The breakfast was so simple and one of the dishes that I enjoyed thoroughly was these granola's that I relished with fresh yogurt and fruit compotes. My children love these as well. I serve it to them along with milk and freshly cut fruits and dry fruits.

How to make Home Made Breakfast Granola Recipe
To begin making the Homemade Breakfast Granola, Preheat the oven to 165 C.
Combine the oats, coconut, almonds, walnuts and cocoa together in a large bowl. In another small bowl whisk the applesauce, oil, honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract and keep aside. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a large spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated.
Spread the oats mixture into a baking pan of 13 by 18 dimensions. Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a light golden brown and crisp about 45 minutes.
Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally during the cooling process. Once cooled stir in the cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds and dates.
Serve the Homemade Breakfast Granola along with milk and fruits or along with yogurt and fruits.
