This granola gets an added nutrient boost from some nettle powder. Nettles are super good for you and contain, among other things, lots of iron, calcium and beta-carotene. In this granola you can't really taste the nettle powder that much, but it gets a lovely light green colour.
I served my granola as a topping for a chia pudding with blueberries and banana. Green smoothie and green tea on the side. So many of my favourite foods on the same breakfast tray!
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cup millet flakes
1/2 tsp real vanilla powder
1 cup pumpkin seeds
3 tbsp nettle powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil

1 cup coconut chips
1 cup raisins

2. Stir together oats, millet flakes, vanilla, pumpkin seeds and nettle powder in a big bowl. Add maple syrup, melted coconut oil and milk. Stir thoroughly with a spoon or use your hands.
3. Spread out the mixture on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour or until the granola is crunchy but not burned. Stir a couple of times during baking.
