The perfect topping to your yogurt or smoothie. Full of vitamins and minerals, our seaweed granola gives a healthy, tasty crunch to your breakfasts or desserts. Store-bought granola can often contain deceptively high levels of sugar and fat, so it’s a worthwhile investment to make your own. There’s nothing more annoying than having your healthy choices undone by hidden ingredients! We use honey to sweeten our granola, but for a vegan alternative you could use maple syrup or agave nectar. Other dried fruits like raisins and apricots also work well, but make sure you cut the larger pieces down to size to ensure a consistent mouthfeel.
Makes 6 portions
120g Nut mix
120g Dried cranberries
80g Vegetable oil
1tbsp Ground cinnamon
1tsp Ground cardamom
3 tbsp Arctic Ocean Greens
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, roughly chopped nuts, cinnamon and cardamom.
Combine the dry mix with the oil and honey and stir until all well coated.
Spread granola mix on baking trays lined with baking paper and roast in the oven for 10 minutes at 170C.
Take the trays out from the oven and give it a good shake, making sure the mixture is roasting evenly.
Bake for another 5 – 8 minutes or until golden in colour.
Take the granola out from the oven, sprinkle with seaweed evenly and mix with the spoon to incorporate while still hot. Leave to cool.
When granola is cool, mix in the cranberries. Store in the jars or airtight containers for up to 3 months.
