Crunchy, nutty, protein packed and delicious homemade granola that takes minutes to make.
I first made this back when I was a volunteer at this pay-as-you-wish cafe in Amsterdam called Trust. Before you go looking for it, let me give you the bad news, it doesn't exist anymore.
I was there for a few months only and yet it was an incredible experience, one that helped me grow a lot, learn a lot, laugh a lot and taste many delicious treats. Trust was much more than a cafe, it was a space for people to come together, share experiences, listen and learn from each other.
I met many wonderful and unforgettable characters during my time there, but one still holds a place in my heart. We haven't spoken or seen each other in years, yet her honesty and passion still remains in mind. Saskia, she was an ex-chef who loved to teach/share her knowledge about food and had some incredible ideas. I'm not sure if she was the one who showed me how to make this but she certainly helped me look at food in a different, more mature way.
We all had things to share, we were all dealing with our own "demons" and Trust was the safe place where we could all be 100% ourselves, be open with one another and trust that our voice was heard and we would be looked after with love and patience.
This goes out to all the incredible people I met along that path.
Thank you and I'm forever grateful for the love I received as well as the delicious food I learned to make, just like this Super Nutty Granola!
