One of the things that make me happy is the aroma of fresh homemade granola in the making.

This recipe is such an easy thing to make and lasts for several days, ensuring you have a healthy and delicious breakfast in a fast and consistent way every weekday.

Homemade Granola is always better

You can make your own delicious and easy homemade granola, it is exceptionally easy so there’s no reason to buy it.

It’s really good to be in full control of what’s in it.

Why Homemade Granola?

Granola is packed with the nutrients you need to start your day in a great way. You have Oats, Nuts and Spices.

The Oats: oats are very Filling and May Help You Lose Weight.

Oats May Help Relieve Constipation.

Whole Oats Are Rich in Antioxidants.

The Nuts: a diet that includes one ounce of nuts daily can reduce your risk of heart disease. Nuts have also been shown to improve cholesterol profiles, prevent arrhythmias, and Contribute to satiety because they are rich in fat, fiber, and protein, all of which are more likely than foods high in carbohydrates to make you feel full.

The Spices: I use a minimum of three spices in my homemade oat granola, why?

Feel free to play with what you have available in your kitchen; add as many “sweet” spices you have. Remember that spices are non-caloric and contribute amazingly to a healthy body and keep a great immune system.

Cinnamon to Lower Blood Sugar

Turmeric to Fight Inflammation

Ginger to Relieve Nausea

7 Tips to make your Homemade Granola Cereal Budget-friendly

Some people have asked me how to make their baked granola budget-friendly, as in some places, nuts have crazy prices, so I am giving you my budget hacks. I always do this exercise when moving to a new/expensive city, like we recently did to Milano.

1. Bulk

Try to find places where you can buy in bulk quantities, they are usually cheaper.

2. Seeds

Replace a fraction of the nuts called out in the recipe for the same amount on seeds; they are cheaper.

3. Budget Supermarkets

I have found that cheap retailers and supermarkets may not have fancy stuff but sometimes have very competitive prices on nuts, dry fruits, and seeds. You may not find organic stuff, but the good thing about nuts is that you can ensure they are raw and without additives.

4. Use half

Oats or Farro provide even better benefits when activated (soaking them overnight). They are the cheapest components of your quick granola recipe.

My morning volume for breakfast usually includes 1 cup of Granola, Porridge, or Chia Pudding + 1 Fruit.

Instead of using 1 cup of granola, let soaking ½ cup of Raw Oats, either:

  • Overnight at room temperature or fridge.
  • In the morning, 15 minutes before eating with warm water.

Add the soaked oats to ½ cup of your Homemade Granola. Now, your granola will last twice the days.

5. Your own Veggie Milk

If you leave your Oats or Farro soaking overnight with 3 times the water (i.e., ½ cup Oats + 1 ½ cups water). You will have Oats Milk in addition to the soaked oats volume, so you don’t need to add milk to your quick granola bowl.

6. Fresh Fruit

Top your basic granola recipe bowl with cheap fruit like banana or apples, cut into rough pieces. You are not only increasing the volume of your granola but its flavor and nutritional value.

7. Flavor

Instead of using essences, grind the zest of an orange, lemon, or any citric you have handy.
