Here in England the sun is finally out! So this is definitely encouraging me to eat more healthy before all the shorts come out!
I somehow whipped this granola up yesterday by mixing a few recipes and using what I could find. I’m sick of breakfast cereals being absolutely packed of sugar, and instead of cakes heavy snacks this is perfect for quick on the go munching. Eat with milk, yogurt on its own!
Any oil you can find, I used rapeseed but coconut would taste better
I didn’t measure anything I just kinda winged it. Mix everything in a big bowl, it shouldn’t stick together but should be slightly wet.
Then spread the mixture thinly on foil or baking paper and pop in the oven on around 180 degrees for ten minutes.
Then leave to cool and pop in a sealable container!

I attempted making my own protein balls the other day and they turned out pretty good! So I thought I’d share how I made them. These are the ingredients I used but add or swap whatever you fancy:
- Whey protein (banana)
- Cacao powder
- Mixed chopped nuts
- Chia seeds
- Peanut butter
- Chopped almonds
The essential ingredients are dates, soaked and chopped in a food processor or blender. And also nuts to give texture. And obviously protein powder.
The peanut butter made it for me, as did the cacao.
After blitzing the dates and nuts together, add water until it’s mix-able. Then add your other ingredients and stir. I decided last minute to add oats to soak up some excess moisture and I’m so glad I did as it made them much more filling and substantial. Then I rolled them in chopped almonds to finish, and pop in the fridge.
I’m going to slowly invest in more health ingredients to add in such as macca powder, but just use what you have!
