We all know that going to 9am lectures requires effort and, if you go on an empty stomach, then it takes a while for the information to sink in and it can be really hard to concentrate. I found that trying to have a big breakfast this early was too much for me, but this granola is filling and isn’t too heavy first thing in the morning.
It is really easy, cheap to make, and keeps you full and alert for those mornings spent in the library! Depending on how much storage space you have in a jar or container, you can adapt and change this recipe to your individual tastes. Once made, the granola will last up to a month so you only have to make this every now and then to have breakfast every day for a few weeks.
You will need:
200g porridge oats
50g pumpkin seeds
10 tablespoons honey
Two tablespoons of oil (coconut/sunflower)
Optional additions: one tablespoon of Chia Seeds and/or diced dried fruit
You now have something for breakfast for the next few weeks! I like to add yoghurt and fruit with mine, but it’s entirely up to you what you want to add. You can have this before going to lectures, or even take it along in a small container to eat once you get into uni. I was never a fan of shop bought granola but I like the fact that with this recipe you can use the ingredients that you like, and adapt and change this depending on your mood.
