INGREDIENTS

6 cups rolled oats
2 cup walnuts
1 cup flaked almonds
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup shredded coconut 2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup cold pressed macadamia oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup dried blueberries

METHOD 

Preheat oven 150c. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Put the rolled oats, walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, brown sugar & cinnamon in a bowl & combine. Mix the maple & oil together. Pour the liquid into the oat mixture & mix until evenly combined. Place mix on prepared lined trays & cook in oven, stirring after 20 minutes, so all ingredients are baked evenly. When cool, stir in blueberries. This will last for 4-5weeks stored correctly in a airtight container. Serving suggestions: make it fun! Serve it in a class tumbler ( as picture shows) so the layers can be seen.

Start by putting a generous spoonful granola in the bottom of each glass, spoonful of baked rhubarb, a tablespoon of natural or coconut yoghurt, topped with a few extra walnuts & crushed Freeze-dried raspberries ( the raspberry ‘dust’ as I call it, add that extra zing)

Note: my recipes are a guide, if you don’t like a particular ingredient, you can add more of another ingredient. Happy breakfast eating.
