There’s nothing like homemade Granola. You can make it to your own liking, add whichever fruit you want (or not) and is so much better for you than the supermarket ones.
Guests at the B&B LOVE our recipe and I share it here with you now..
Watch me make it during a Facebook Live and have a go at home and find the recipe below.
If you buy a supermarket granola, even the artisan ones you can get there, if you check out the ingredients on the back of the packet, you’ll usually see some ingredient you’d be better off without!
For instance, I’m looking at a packet now and I can see sugar, palm oil, rapeseed oil and something called ‘natural flavouring’…….well, I don’t want any of that in my granola, thank you. I’m not against rapeseed oil, just as long as it’s produced properly and I think it probably wasn’t here, otherwise the packet would have made a big deal of it.
Know what you’re putting into your body I say.
So, this granola only has Oats, Flaked Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Honey, Raisins & Cranberries……and that’s it. And just 2 tbsp of honey at that!
Here’s the Recipe and the Method
300 gr Large Rolled Oats
100gr Flaked Almonds
200gr Pumpkin Seeds
2 tbsp honey (runny honey, warmed gently)
Raisins & Cranberries chopped small to taste
In a large bowl pop the oats, almonds and pumpkin seeds and mix
Add the warmed honey and mix well again
Pop on a lined baking sheet and pop in the oven 150 degrees with your timer on for every 4 minutes until cooked, approx 15 mins
Each time your alarm goes, turn the mixture to ensure an even bake colour
the longer you leave the mixture cooking, the crunchier the granola will be and the darker it will look….just don’t leave it in there too long so it burns!
Once cooked to your liking, leave to cool on the tray
Once cooled add your chopped raisins & cranberries (or whatever fruit you prefer)
If it’s completely cooled you can then store in an airtight jar and it will keep for a good 14 days…if it lasts that long!!
