Vegan Protein Granola  

METHOD:

Preheat your oven to 170c.

First off, crush the macadamia nuts. If you have a food processor, easy breezy, but sometimes it’s more fun to do this stuff by hand! Use a rolling pin to get nice, uneven pieces, then place to one side.

Mix the oil, maple syrup and vanilla essence in a big bowl, then add the oats & protein powder and stir so they’re nicely covered. Pour out onto two baking sheets to ensure even cooking.

Pop them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Take out and add the nuts, seeds and dates across both trays, then return to the oven and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, depending how golden and crunchy you like your granola. 

Let it cool, then store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
