I’ve been making my own granola for a few years, and I don’t think it was twice the same, but there’s just a base you can adapt to your taste and that’s what I love about it.
It was named “Granoline” by someone who had quite a lot of it, I probably don’t need to explain the reason ;)… it’s really an easy recipe, quick, and you most probably never will buy some ready made supermarket muesli anymore in your entire life.
- 200 gr. de flakes (oat or spelt for example)
- 40 gr. flaked almonds
- 40 gr. pumpkin seeds
- 40 gr. de whole hazelnuts (I never put these before tasting some granola that had some in Amsterdam and it really became an essential since…)
- 40 gr. linseeds
- 60 gr. raisins
- 1 c.s. cinnamon
- 1 pinch of salt (the secret to every sweet recipe…)
- 2 c.s. vegetable oil (sunflower, canola, coconut for example)
- 6 c.s. maple syrup
- Pre heat the oven 180 °C
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl
- Heat the oil and maple syrup in a pan (just heat… not boil!!), mix, pour in the bowl on the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Pour the mixture on a baking tray covered with baking paper, and in the oven for 10-15 min. Mix when you feel it needs to be mixed, and when you’re happy about it, take it out.
- Leave to cool down and store in a jar (you can keep it 2-3- weeks no problem, but I doubt it will last that long… just saying’)
You can serve it with yoghurt or smoothie, and add fruit, quinoa pops on top, or pretty much anything you feel like, and it also make a nice little attention to bring when you’re invited to a brunch, in a pretty bag with a nice ribbon…
