Homemade Granola (Vegan and Gluten-free)

Good morning beautiful people!

Every morning I enjoy a homemade porridge with different toppings everyday: banana & dark chocolate, apple & cinnamon, blueberries & almonds… I like variety and enjoy this warm bowl before biking to work in the cold.

My boyfriend joins me sometimes, but he also enjoy crunchy mornings with granola. I have not found granolas that would be up to my expectations and satisfy me 100% (and for a good price) in terms of ingredients, quality and flavours. What I found in supermarkets is either very industrial, poor quality and cheap, or too expensive to afford for a regular breakfast meal. So, I decided that the best way would be to make granola myself: I got very excited as I could be super creative regarding the ingredients and flavours! I could pick any nuts, seeds and dried fruits I liked, and add any flavour I feel would suit. And believe me, there are endless combinations you can come up with!

The recipe I came up with is an idea, but you can change the nuts, or dried fruits or flavours for others that you prefer, be crazy!

I let you to enjoy this homemade granola, which is egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free!
