I’m such a lover of homemade granola! It’s easy to make, full of fibre, protein and healthy fats! Oranges (in this recipe we are just using the rind) contain lots of vitamin C and vitamin A which are amazing for your immune system. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and can help aid in digestion! I use ginger a lot in my cooking and also grated in some warm water throughout the day:). Another main ingredient to this recipe is dried figs. They add the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering, are high in fibre, do not spike blood sugar levels, and are a good source of iron!
Vegan + refine sugar free
When i’m feeling like a change from my oats or smoothie for breakfast I will have a bowl of this granola with some fruit + homemade almond milk or on top of a smoothie bowl for extra goodness! Hope you enjoy this recipe xx
