Granola

For Day 2 week 4 of BM #49, here is a healthy recipe for Granola. I use granola in parfait, as a topping in my oatmeal/Greek Yogurt or just as a snack to curb my late afternoon cravings.

I felt that the butter can be further reduced and may be more honey can be added to compensate. I had earlier tried making Microwave Granola and it was equally tempting and interesting.

Recipe idea from here
Ingredients - 

Rolled Old fashioned Oats 3 1/2 cups
Sun Flower Seeds 4 Tbsp
Flax seeds 2 Tbsp
Mixed Nuts chopped 3 cups (I used Cashews, Walnuts and Almonds)
Raisins 1/2 cup
Dried sweetened cranberry 1/2 cup
(Add any other dried fruit of your choice like apricot, figs, dates etc.)
Cinnamon powder 2 tsp
Nutmeg Powder 1 tsp

Ginger Powder 1 tsp
Agave Nectar (Or Honey) 1/2 cup
Butter 5 Tbsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Vanilla essence 1 tsp (Optional - I didn't use it)


Method Of Preparation -


In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except Honey, butter and vanilla essence. Mix well and set aside.

Melt the butter and mix the honey until they blend well.

Preheat the oven to 275 °F. Get 2 big baking trays ready with parchment paper lined.

Mix the honey-butter mixture into the oats blend. Make sure the honey-butter is coated onto all the ingredients evenly.

Divide the mixture onto the parchment paper lined baking trays  spreading them in a single layer. It is okay even if they clump up a little.

Bake them for about 45-50 minutes. Toss them in between for even browning. Leave them in the oven after the oven is switched off.

After about an hour or so, remove from the oven and let it cool.

Store in air tight containers and use as per need.

Preparation Time 10 Min + Baking time 45 min + Cooling time 1 hour

  5. perfect homemade granola will be so great as you can customize it to your own preference - I hardly buy it because they often include things I dont like or have allergies to
