Veganism is on the go all across the globe. Since people have found about its many benefits, there has been a rush to find the best vegan food recipes throughout the world. More people are adapting this food habit and strictly boycotting any kind of animal products to stay true to the nature.
However, being vegan is not so simple. Besides finding time to get all the vegan products as per your likings, it takes some effort to prepare the vegan dishes that are healthy as well as delicious.
So what are the healthy and delicious recipes you can prepare with vegan food? One of the best vegan breakfast alternatives is granola. It usually consists of various ingredients including oats, almonds, chia seeds, and sometimes dried fruits such as raisins and dates.
Here are a few granola recipes made from Addicted granola that are the best vegan breakfast alternatives and are just irresistible:
Oil Free Chickpea Granola –
- Whipped chickpea brine
- Addicted Lemon Cherry Chia Nut Granola
To serve (Optional):
- Dairy-free milk
- Fresh fruits of your choice
- Add maple syrup and vanilla (optional) to the whipped chickpea brine and mix for 30 seconds more. Pour the mixture over the granola and fold to cover.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto the baking sheets and bake for 28-35 minutes till it is deep golden brown. Stir and flip the pan around to ensure even baking.
- Let it cool completely then add dried fruits and toss. Place the mix in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks at room temperature and freeze it up to 3 months afterwards.
Easy-To-Cook Grain-Free Granola –
- Addicted Tropical Fruit and Coconut Granola
- 3 tbsp. coconut or olive oil
- 1/3 scant cup maple syrup (or sub agave or honey if not vegan)
- 1/4 cup dried blueberries (optional// or other dried fruit)
- 1/4 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds (optional)
- Warm the coconut oil and maple syrup on low heat in a small saucepan and pour over the Addicted granola mixing it well.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet (may require more depending on size) and bake for 20 minutes. Remove it from oven, add dried blueberries and roasted sunflower seeds, and stir.
- Increase heat to 340 degrees F (171 C) and return the mixture to oven for another 5-8 minutes, or till the color is deep golden brown.
- The coconut oil helps granola to crisp up nicely, but pay attention as it browns quickly.
- Once the granola is visibly browned and done cooking (about 27 minutes), remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
- Store in a container with an air-tight seal, and it will be all good for a few weeks.
Almond Coconut Granola –
- Addicted Nutty Chocolate Chip Crunchy Granola
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (or sub avocado or olive oil)
- 1/4 cup almond butter (add a little salt if not salted)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- In a small skillet over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil, almond butter, and maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener), and pour over the Addicted granola. Mix well.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto one large or two small baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes. Stir a bit near the halfway point to ensure even cooking.
- The coconut oil helps this granola crisp up nicely, but observe it carefully toward the end as it can burn quickly.
- Once the granola is visibly browned (about 23 minutes), remove from the oven and let cool completely.
- Store in a container that has an air-tight seal and it will remain intact for 2-3 weeks.
Crunchy Baked Granola Bar –
- Addicted Honey Cinnamon Walnut Almond Granola
- 2 Tbsp almond butter (or another nut or seed butter)
- 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (or sub brown rice syrup for a less sweet bar)
For Topping (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped vegan dark chocolate
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp sea salt or hemp seeds
- Add almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup to a small saucepan and bring to a low boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Then remove from heat and immediately add to the Addicted granola.
- Use a mixing spoon (or your hands) to mix thoroughly, ensuring that the dates and the almond butter mixture are evenly dispersed and coating all of the dry ingredients.
- Add the mixture to a parchment-lined 8×8-inch baking pan and spread into an even layer. Then top with another layer of parchment paper and press down with something flat – such as a measuring cup – to press into an even, uniform layer.
- Bake at 325 degrees F (162 C) for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan. Transfer to the freezer to speed cooling time.
- Once cooled, lift out of the pan and slice into desired number of bars.
- Optional: Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil in a small mixing bowl in the microwave or over a double boiler on the stovetop. Spoon a small amount over the bars in a drizzle pattern or cover half of the bar with chocolate. Top with sea salt or hemp seeds.
- Once bars have dried/cooled, store covered at room temperature for 5 days or in the freezer up to 1 month.
Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Granola –
- Addicted Cacao Almond Granola
- 1/4 cup coconut (or avocado) oil
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips or chunks (optional)
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil and maple syrup until melted and combined. Pour over the Addicted granola and mix well. If using a food processor, this breaks down the oats and nuts a bit more so it’s a finer texture, but this is optional.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 17-24 minutes, stirring a bit near the halfway point to ensure even baking.
- After completely cooled, place in a container that has an airtight seal for a few weeks. Or store in the freezer up to 1 month or longer.
