Mango Maca Granola -quick, easy and healthy recipe in Healthy Food Recipes

Sometimes I just need some good granola for breakfast or as a snack after a yoga class.
The ones that you can buy in the stores these days are usually full of unhealthy oils (palmoil) and refined sugar.
So here is a quick and healthy recipe to make your own and even enrich it with some super foods to give you that extra bit of nutrients. Maca is a root that belongs to the radish family and grows in Peru. It is full of B, C and E vitamins and has many benefits like energy and mood boosting, clearing of the skin, woman’s health and mood balance.

Mango Maca Granola

Ingredients:
– approx 2 cups of oatmeal (spread the oats thin on a baking sheet covered with baking paper)
– 2 tablespoons of chiaseeds
– a handul of your favorite nuts ( I used brazilian nuts, almonds, cashews and pistachios)
– 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
– 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon powder
– optional: Agave syrup
– 2 tablespoons of dried mango pieces

Method:
– spread the oats even in a thin layer on a baking sheet covered with baking paper
– put the nuts and chiaseeds on top
– sprinkle the maca powder and cinnamon on top
– pour the liquid coconut oil evenly over the oat mix (tip: if your coconut oil got solid, just heat it in a hot waterbath for around 1 minute)
– optional sweetness: give a bit of agave syrup over the oat mix
– mix it all and again spread the oat mix in a thin layer on the baking sheet
– preheat the oven at 160 degrees for around 5 minutes
– bake the oat mix for around 15 minutes on low heat at 160 – 180 degrees and make sure you stir it multiple times (3 to 5 times is good)
– take the oat mix out of the oven and let it cool down
– sprinkle the cut mango pieces on top
– et voila your healthy granola is ready to enjoy

After cooling down you can store your granola for around a week and enjoy it with your favorite plant or nut milk. I love coconut milk these days, but thats maybe just me missing summer and dreaming about coconut palm trees.
