HOMEMADE GRANOLA AND ALMOND MILK

HOMEMADE GRANOLA AND ALMOND MILK
HOMEMADE GRANOLA AND ALMOND MILK

Sometimes all you really want is a decent bowl of granola in the morning 🥣 And with this recipe you can make it from scratch! Almond milk and all 😋 This granola is delicious, nutritious and super easy to make. Feel free to get creative, if you’re feeling naughty some dark chocolate would be pretty tasty in there 👀 If you can find some almonds and such from a package free shop, the almond milk recipe is great if you’re trying to cut down on plastic or waste! The granola will stay fresh in a sealed jar for several weeks - but we’d be surprised if you can make it last more than a few days 😉

    Finish the granola and store until you’re ready to eat | Take the tray out of the oven and let the granola cool to room temperature | Pour the raisins out on to the granola, mix through and pour the granola out into a sealable jar Now, make the almond milk | Soak the almonds in water overnight or, if you’re short on time, boil for 20 minutes | Pit the dates and roughly cut into small pieces | Put the nuts, dates and water in a high powered liquidiser and blitz until almost smooth | Pour the liquid into a jug through a cheesecloth to catch all the sediment | Put the jug in the fridge and consume within 5 days Time to serve! | Pour ⅕ of the granola into a bowl, cover with ⅕ of the almond milk, sprinkle over some mixed berries and serve for a quick weekday breakfast
