I adore making granola. You can find a lot of unhealthy granola recipes on the internet. I experimented with other recipes & I came up with this one. This is my favorite granola recipe. My husband & my family loves it!
I call this one a Christmas recipe, because there are red dried cranberries & green pumpkin seeds in it. They are the primal colours of Christmas.
It is lovely enjoyed with some vegan coconut yoghurt or soy yoghurt or a vegan nut milk.
You must have seen this picture before, I use it in my about page. This picture is already 4 years old. So, is that one, below.
Yum yum Yum,…Let’s see How I made it!
Recipe: For a whole lot of granola!
230 gr. medium Gluten-Free oat flakes( not the large big ones, but the full GF oat flakes, but a little bit smaller.)
70 gr. pecans, broken in to pieces
45 gr. pumpkin seeds
1 + 1/2 teaspoons of a good vanilla extract ( I use home-made )
1 tablespoon flaxseed
60 ml. canola oil
80 ml. maple syrup
To add after roasting into the hot oven:
50 gr. raisins, cut up
30 gr. dried not so sweet cranberries, cut up
1. Preheat the oven on 180 ° Celsius. ( 350 F )
2. Take a large bowl & put the GF oat flakes, pecans & pumpkin seeds in it. Mix well. Add 1 tablespoon of flaxseed to it. Mix well.
3. In another bowl, mix canola oil with the maple syrup. Add vanilla extract. Stir good.
4. Put the ingredients of bowl 1 into bowl 2 & mix well.
5. Take a non-stick roasting tin & spread out evenly in to the roasting tin.
6. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes until all crisp.
7. Every 5 minutes or so, you have to stir everything around, so that it will be crisp on every side.
Otherwise, it will burn on one side & it wouldn’t be crisp on the other side.
8.Bake until everything is golden & ready.
9. When it is ready, turn the oven off. Take out of the oven & let it cool off completely.
10. When it is all cooled of, place it in a bowl & add the dried fruit. You can choose whatever fruit you want, but I like this combination.
11. So, I added the dried cranberries & dried raisins & mixed it with a spoon through the granola.
12. Store in an airtight storage box. Enjoy!!! xxx
