Do you ever have those moments when you think ‘How have I lived my whole life and not discovered this’? Well, that’s how I feel about homemade granola!
Shop bought granola is a) a rip off b) full of sugar and c) not very nut allergy friendly.
So I decided to make my own nut free granola. This has been on my to do list for ages and when I finally got round to it I realised just how easy it really is. Plus, you get to pick all the ingredients. All the non-nutty granolas are a bit too fruity for me so it was nice to create my own balance.
This is great served for breakfast with oat milk and Banana, or for a go-to snack during the day. I think it would also make a lovely gift in a food hamper and will keep in an airtight container for a month.
Nut free granola
125ml Carob or maple syrup

50g pumpkin seeds
