All of the ingredients have nutritional superpowers and the recipe is very easy to do. The granola chunks are chunky, delicious and almost addictive. I love that all the nuts and seeds turn out slightly roasted and in clusters. It is the perfect granola that tastes like a crumbled granola bar… if that makes sense.

tips, trICKS AND OTHER ideas

  • The most difficult thing about this vegan granola recipe is that it bakes slow. I mean… really slow, I’m talking about an hour here.
  • Also, you have to let it cool down completely. So if you are in a hurry this is not your recipe, but THIS FIVE MINUTE ON THE STOVE GRANOLA will be.
  • Feel free to use the nuts and seeds you have in your pantry. As I always tell you, use my recipes as a guide, make them yours and adapt them to your complete taste.

Amo la granola especialmente en el yogurt. Las almendras son de mis nueces favoritas. La combinación de ambas es del más allá. En este caso puedo decir que me gusta la más porque es vegan y no tiene nada de harina. Además se ven ricos.
