What is your favorite vegetable milk

Crunchy granola with cinnamon and vanilla

With this post I want to be my dearest and very easy granola recipe share with you. This vegan granola is crunchy, sugar free, smells wonderfully of cinnamon and is also healthy with many different nuts and soy flakes.

Good reasons to make your own crunchy granola

As a vegan, it is sometimes a bit more difficult to get a reasonably affordable vegan granola in stores. Very often you can find in purchased muesli mixes, among other things Palm oil, hid refined sugar and various undesirable Additives. Unfortunately, for me personally, these muesli mixes aren't crunchy enough either, so I decided to make granola myself with my favorite ingredients.

The special thing about this recipe is that you can put together your own granola to suit your taste and mood. It is important to us personally that the muesli contains nuts, seeds and healthy spelled oat flakes and soy flakes for that extra protein kick. When I make granola, I make enough stock, because it stays loose in a screw-top jar 8-12 weeks - or it is usually eaten beforehand because it tastes so good 😉

If you like it chocolatier then you have to try our crispy chocolate granola!

List of ingredients for your homemade granola

Basically, you can choose from many different ingredients for your granola. Here I show you the 7 major ingredient groups:

Base - oatmeal! Regardless of whether Spelled flakes, Small or large-leaved oat flakes. Just choose the base for your granola.

nuts - You can use your favorite nuts for your granola. For example are suitable Hazelnuts, Walnuts, Pecans and Almonds. They provide valuable trace elements and 2-polyunsaturated essential fatty acids.

Seeds - Different types of seeds should not be missing in a healthy granola. They provide valuable omega-3 fatty acids and are a great source of magnesium, iron, and calcium. Choose between linseed, Chia seeds, Hemp seeds or Sesame seeds.

Source of protein - So that you also get a decent portion of protein in the granola, you should add soy flakes to your granola. If you don't want soy flakes, you can instead popped quinoa or Amaranth use.

Sweeteners - To make your granola a little sweeter, you can Maple syrup, Rice syrup or Agave syrup use. For this I always conjure up a kind of paste in which I warm rapeseed oil with the chosen sweetener, refine it with cinnamon and vanilla or cocoa and fold it into the dry mass.

Spices - Regardless of whether cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa, cardamom or other spices - let your imagination run wild and add your favorite spices to your granola.

Special offers - If you want something special in your granola, you can, for example dried banana chips, Cranberries, Coconut flakes or small chocolate chips Add.

Crunchy Granola is an all-rounder!

You can enjoy the Crunchy Granola for breakfast in a delicious smoothie bowl, on a warm porridge or with your favorite vegetable milk straight or with soy yoghurt and fresh fruits. Granola can also be used for delicious desserts. For example, you can use it in a layered dessert with cardamom yogurt.
