I’ve said it before and I will say it again; some things are just so simple you should really wonder why you still bother buying it in the store.. 😉 Is it convenience? price? What?
With granola it is a typical case of that; I’ve been planning to make it for ages but just never got around to it. But now that I have done it a couple of times, you will not see me picking up another box of breakfast cereal from the supermarket. First of all because homemade is way better. And second, you can throw in all sorts of good stuff which you will not find in the stores. A little sidenote; this is delicious with raisins, cranberries or goji berries, but remember to throw them in after the granola has been roasted otherwise it will become a bit messy!
- 450 gr rolled oats
- 175 gr mixed nuts unsalted ofcourse
- 50 gr sesame seeds
- 50 gr sunflower seeds
- 125 ml sunflower oil
- 100 ml clear runny honey
Chop some of the nuts a little smaller if you like. preheat the oven to 190 C and prepare a large baking tray (one with edges is a plus here) Mix everything together well and spread out in a thin layer on the baking tray. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Make sure to stir it through a couple of times in between.
Leave to cool and keep in a airtight box for a month.
After roasting you can easily add dried fruits in there as well. Go wild!
