A nice bowl of crunchy granola is just what you need to start the day off right. Even more so when it packs nourishing ingredients that will satisfy you from the inside out. So give our Healthy Cashew Butter Granola a try and you won’t go back to the store bought one!
Crunchy cereal and toasted nuts make granola a breakfast favorite for everyone. But most of the granola you find at the grocery store is loaded with refined sugar, syrup, and salt, making it a not-so-healthy choice. Instead, the preparation of homemade muesli cheap and easygiving you complete control over the ingredients.
All you need to make this cashew butter granola is jumbo rolled oats, raw quinoa, flaxseeds, and cashews. Mix them with mashed bananas, warm cashew butter, then slowly bake until golden brown. A last pinch of chewy raisins and you have the healthiest muesli ever!
Ingredients like honey, brown sugar and oil make the classic granola sweet and crunchy, but rather unhealthy if consumed every day. Instead, to make our recipe as digestible as possible, we swapped sugar for ripe bananas and oil for cashew butter. These ingredients have a fraction of the sugars and fats, and they add too fibers, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
We’ve paired jumbo oatmeal with raw quinoa for more vegetable proteins, but you can also just use oatmeal or use buckwheat or puffed rice instead. The best part about this recipe is that you can mix and match your favorite fruits, nuts, and grains to make your favorite granola!
So why not make a large batch to have on hand all week? You can sprinkle these crunchy clusters over yogurt, add them to fresh milk, combine them with chopped fruit, or turn them into energy bars like these passion fruit bars.
Another option is to snack on them straight from the jar for the ultimate crunch!
