Healthy Granola Recipe Thermomix

Published

Try my healthy granola recipe or toasted muesli as we know it in Australia. It’s super easy to make and can be customised to your taste. Start with my basic recipe and then take a look at some of the suggested variations.

Granola is such a versatile food, use it to top yoghurt, chia pudding, custard or ice-cream for a delicious crunch. Try a bowl of poached pears with granola for dessert, or snack on it like a trail mix.

Why homemade granola is better than store bought!

Making your own granola means you know exactly what ingredients have been used and you can customise them based on your own health criteria.

  • Homemade granola constains less sugar than commercial prepared granola.
  • You can vary the type of sugar used, ie maple syrup, coconut blossom sugar, honey or no sugar
  • Choose the type of fat you prefer, I have used coconut oil but you could use almond, or macadamia oil
  • Add your own favourite seeds and nuts. Or make is nut free!
  • You could also toss through some dried fruits before storing
  • Add the spices you like, maybe add some ground ginger for a gingerbread flavour, or mixed spice if you would like your granola to taste like Easter Buns.

Is Granola Healthy?

Like all foods moderation is the name of the game. The ingredients in this Granola recipe contain valuable nutrients which are needed in the body.

Rolled oats (avoid minute oats) are a wholegrain and fabulous source of fibre. It takes the body a long time to digest this food so it reduce blood glucose spikes. The long digestion time also keeps you feeling full longer. Beta Glucan in the oats also has a cholesterol lowering effect. The resistant starch in the oats will help feed the good gut bacteria. This has many flow on health benefits.

Nuts and Seeds are a good source of protein which also helps keep you full longer and assist in preventing muscle catabolism. They also provide healthy essential fats.

Coconut and seeds are a good source of antioxidants which fight inflammation.

Granola is also a useful source of iron, zinc, and vitamin A.

So it all sounds pretty good… but, don’t forget coconut, nuts and seeds are calorie dense. So granola is a useful topping for yoghurt or as a snack but should be eaten as part of a balanced diet.

Making Granola – Melt and Mix!

If you don’t have a Thermomix you can still make this delicious granola using my simple melt and mix method.

  1. In a glass jar add maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil, and cinnamon.
  2. Place in the microwave, heat until melted.
  3. Add oats, almonds, pepita or pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to a large bowl.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients.
  5. Add the microwaved ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine.
  6. Spread granola over prepared baking tray and cook as discribed below.
