How to make 3-Ingredient Granola

I do like easy, simple recipes that I can work into the day or even better can make while I am cooking dinner.

Granola is a must in our household. The kids love it so much and get so excited when we make it, which is usually late afternoon on a Tuesday. This is because the oven is usually on anyway because it’s baked potato and tuna salad night!

I like that it’s a simple 3 ingredient recipe, not just because it is quick and easy but because we usually already have the ingredients in the house.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 3-4 cups of rolled oats

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 356 F (180 C)
  • Line a large baking tray with parchment paper (or spread a thin layer of coconut oil)
  • Melt the coconut oil and honey in a medium sized pot
  • Once melted add the oats and stir until covered
  • Spread the mixture onto the baking tray
  • Bake for 6 minutes and stir
  • Bake for a further 5 to 6 minutes (until golden brown)
  • Cool and store in an airtight container

At this point you can add desired extras like nuts, raisins, cranberries, puffed rice etc.

We usually add granola to yogurt and cereals and sometimes ice cream 😀

Add granola to yoghurt, cereal or ice cream

One of my favourite snacks is adding granola and chopped apple to Greek yoghurt (mixed with cinnamon and honey of course)

Happy Pancake Day!

It’s pancake day, yay! This post was from last year but I wanted to share it again.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy some pancakes for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

🥘

Pancakes for breakfast and dinner too

Maybe a salad for lunch – yes that will do

Gather the ingredients there are seven on the list

Get ready to mix

2 cups of flour, 2 and a half teaspoons of baking powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt.

In a separate bowl beat two eggs and 1 and a half to 2 cups of milk. Then add to the dry ingredients and mix, mix, mix

Lastly add two tablespoons of melted butter until you have a silky smooth batter.

Heat up a pan – not too hot that it splatters.

Cook and flip repeatedly, it should make a lot.

Decorate with blueberries and banana

Don’t forget a drizzle from the maple syrup pot

Happy Pancake Day to you!

 

*We enjoy having pancakes every Saturday/Sunday for brunch. We have a few allergies in the household so we usually substitute flour with gluten free flour, butter with dairy free spread, milk with soya milk and eggs with egg replacer. They still turn out yummy and the boys love them.
