Vegan Homemade Classic Oatmeal Granola

If you are anything like me, and you don't like to eat a big meal first thing, you might be interested in this little treat. This classic granola is packed with all sorts of goodness, everything you need for a productive and energetic morning 
 I love eating my granola with fresh blueberries and banana in almond yogurt.
 It has oats, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds and of course dark unsweetened chocolate.

Aside from this granola being so delicious, it is packed full of nutrients and essential fats:
Pistachios (optional) - Pistachios are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and various nutrients, including vitamin B6 and thiamine. Plus, hey are absolutely delicious.

Sunflower seeds - Sunflower seeds are excellent sources of several nutrients including vitamin E,  selenium and Manganese. It is such a small package of all these wonderful, good stuff. Be aware of the amount of the seeds you are consuming, as they are very high in calorie.

Chia seeds - Although the chia seed is so tiny, it is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. The seeds re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. Chia is literally 14% protein, which is crazy!

Dark chocolate - It is one of the best sources of antioxidants, just a 100 grams of quality Dark chocolate contains 11 grams of fiber. Dark chocolate is rich in other nutrients, for example ,iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese.

Almond - Almonds are among the world’s best sources of vitamin E, they are also high in healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, protein and other important nutrients.

Oats - Oats are rich in carbs and fiber, but also higher in protein and fat than most other grains. They are very high in many vitamins minerals and antioxidants. Oats also help you feel full a lot longer than other grains, which leads to longer times between meals.

  1. The granola be kept outside in a sealed container, depending on your weather, I live in Florida so the humidity and heat usually require fridge storage. In relatively cooled areas, the granola bars will keep at room temperature for up to a 3 weeks.
  2. This granola can easily be transformed into granola morning bars. If you want to try, check out this simple recipe.
