We filled this baked granola with every superfood in the pantry. The result is a deliciously addictive mix that packs a whopping 10 g of protein and 5 g of fibre in every 1/2 cup serving.

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 cup pepitas
  • 100 g Brazil nuts , finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup goji berries or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried golden berries or golden raisins
