    Homemade Granola

     

    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..

    Live Demo

    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!

    Supermarket Granola

    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

    Recipe

    300 gr Large Rolled Oats

    100gr Flaked Almonds

    200gr Pumpkin Seeds

    2 tbsp honey (runny honey, warmed gently)

    Raisins & Cranberries chopped small to taste

     

    Method

    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!!
