Matcha Granola with Blueberries

July 21, 2016

This granola recipe that I got from Jessica’s dessert blog is fantastic as either breakfast or a snack. I suggest making this over the weekend, so you can use it as a power breakfast or snack during the work week. It’ll make you way more productive for sure.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • about 2 cups nuts and/or seeds (I recommend almonds and walnuts and I added in some whole flaxseeds and chia seeds)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil (melted coconut oil would work very well here!)
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • big pinch salt
  • 1 cup dried blueberries
  • 2½ teaspoons matcha powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250º F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts, and brown sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Pour over oat mixture and toss to coat. Spread mixture out onto two baking sheets and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and scrape mixture into large bowl. Let cool for a few minutes then sprinkle matcha over and toss to combine. Add in dried blueberries and toss to combine.
  5. Keeps in an airtight container for several weeks.
