homemade kid friendly granola

The last couple of weeks I have been writing about breakfasts. Breakfasts for the kids and breakfasts for me and you can find these posts here. This recipe though is the most requested one by the kids. This recipe contains link to my blog sponsor Pureharvest fab products.

The granola is very filling so the kids only need about a half a cup or so. It can be eaten with your favourite type of milk or as my daughter prefers with yogurt and berries on top.

This recipe makes a large batch, so it is time effective and easy to make. Add all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix the liquid ingredients in a small bowl I use blog sponsor Pureharvest rice malt syrup in this recipe as it gives a lovely light sweet taste, without over powering the flavours of the nuts and seeds.

If you have had trouble finding Pureharvest’s rice malt syrup at your local Woolies, check near where they stock the honey. I have two Woolies near me and one is now stocking it near the honey while the other in the health food section.

Then you combine the dry and liquid ingredients and mix.

Pour it on to trays and pop them into the oven and wait for your beautiful crispy granola.

This granola also works well for an afternoon snack for the kids.
