I may or may not have a smoothie bowl obsession. Being the good Millenial that I am ( or am I Gen Z?? ), I try to make my food pretty and ideal for Instagram and smoothie bowls are so colourful and healthy so they have been my platform for pretty food. To add a nice crunch and extra sweetness I usually add granola. After trying granola recipes and experimenting with things to add this has been my favourite!
This makes quite a bit, which isn’t a problem because the granola is kind of addictive. I put it on yoghurt and smoothie and just eat it straight up.
2 cups rice crispy cereal
1 cup large flake oats
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. I only add this occasionally, but it gives it a sort of doughnut flavour with definitely not being doughnuts.
Mix everything together in a large bowl, making sure it’s very well combined and that there aren’t large chunks of brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let cool before using and putting away, it hardens and turns into almost like a brittle once it’s cool, then it can be broken up and sprinkled onto smoothies.
