Oat Couture: Homemade Healthy Granola


“You cannot conquer the world if you don’t eat breakfast.” That’s a fact, and if you have the habit of skipping breakfast because of not having enough time… well I know how that feel. I decided to make granola chunks (note I said chunks because BARS failed) so that I can have one week’s worth of breakfast sorted. I was googling for recipes until I found a video that has a slightly healthier option. Instead of using brown sugar, flour and butter to make the granola gel together, use condense milk. You know what’s even better? Fat free condense milk.

Here’s what I used to bake these super healthy granola chunks:

250 grams of organic oats
25 grams of butter
1 can of condense milk (fat free)
200 grams of dried cranberries and raisins
25 grams of walnuts
25 grams of almond
+ sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon at the end

Does the recipe look simple? Oh hell yes. The process took less than an hour plus cooling.

1. Pre-heat oven to 175 degress
2. Melt the butter
3. Mix the dry mixture together: oats and nuts and dried fruits
4. After mixing the dry stuff pour in the entire can of condense milk and the butter
5. Stir the mixture until it’s completely even
6. Pour it into the tray, please slab enough butter on it
7. Put in over for half an hour
8. Take it out let it cool for 15 minutes

And it’s ready! Mine didn’t gel well because I didn’t let it cool long enough and my mixture was too little (ran out of some ingredients). Best eaten with yogurt and berries or you can just pack it into a small zip lock to nibble at work.
