I usually eat cereals for breakfast because its something which is readily available in hand when your in a hurry. .......and busy moms  like us are ALWAYS on the go! 
I never ever sit down and have breakfast. I'm the person who prefers to finish all my work in the morning itself so I can have sometime to relax very often I realize I havn't eaten my breakfast halfway through cooking and then just eat a bowl of cereal while I'm cooking! It's the easiest for me.

I saw this granola on my insta friend's gram a few weeks ago! Prerna's instagram is 'cooking with happiness' and she has alot of healthy recipes.
It seemed too perfect and tempting that I had to give it a go! That golden brown granola was something I couldn't forget ! So I had to make it!:)
Waited patiently till she posted the recipe.............and bam! I'm OBSESSED!! Super duper  delicious!
I had a bowl with some creamy flavoured yoghurt ! YUM! So crunchy and the right amount of sweetness and everything!
YESSSS! My week is sorted!!


to mix and roast:
rolled oats - 1 and 1/2 cup
almonds - 1/3 cup
pumpkin seeds - 1/4 cup
dried coconut flakes - 1/4 cup
chia seeds - 1tbsp
flax seeds - 2 tbsps
jaggery powder - 2 tbsps
cinnamon powder - 1/4 tsp
pinch sea salt
honey- 3tbsps (or maple syrup)
coconut oil - 3 tbsps

to add later:
raisins - 1/4 cup
dried cranberries - 1/4 cup

  • Toss all the ingredients under 'mix and roast' in a bowl. Mix well.
  • In a wok, on low flame roast the granola mix. Keep stirring continuously.
  • Roast till it becomes slightly brown. Switch off and add in the dried cranberries and raisins. Mix well and let it rest in the pan for a few minutes. It will become nice and crisp.
  • After it cools, store in an airtight container.
  • I'm not too fond of using the oven. I prefer the stove top for cooking if possible.
  • Normally people use an oven to roast the granola, stirring it every 3 minutes for about 20 minutes or so at 180 deg.
  • But i preferred using a stove top.
