I love making my own granola, but if you're not blessed with a lot a free time like me it's just easier to just mix some 'ready to buy' ingredients to make your own new type of 'granola' or 'muesli' whatever you want to name it yourself.
I'm totally hooked on eating dried mango, although it's a fruity snack.. they contain a lot of sugar..and with a lot I mean.. it's like a sugarbomb so that makes it also high in Cal..(not so sexy..)! So instead of eating them just as a snack I came up with this idea to cut them in little bits so I can mix it with the rest of my mix of Buckwheat flakes, Linseed, Goji berries, Coconut crisps, Hazelnuts and (glutenfree) Oatmeal. I love the fact that there's a big variety on glutenfree 'oats' you can buy at the Eko Plaza, believe me... eating just quinoa-oats with yoghurt is SUPER BORING and really not that tasty.. so mix mix mix.. and TADAAA...you're personalised healthy breakfast mix is ready to be eaten..!
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl and stir it well so everything is mixed evenly and then put it back into a big Weckpot or big Mason Jar! Not only doen this look stunning on your kitchencabinets, the taste is even better!
I love to eat this as a snack in between meals or to start my day with. Layers of 'Light Soft Curd Cheese' (Dutch transl. magere kwark) or if you like you can change it into Soy yoghurt, coconut yoghurt.. you name it..
Layer it with fruits you love and your own mix of oats, healthy seeds and dried fruits!
I bet that after eating your own customised mix you will NEVER order a granola/yoghurt outdoors.. this just beats it by FARRRR!
Have a nice day!
