Homemade granola

This is the most freeform recipe I have ever used. It is from my dinner guest who made this as a topping for the fruit salad. Her instructions were, a couple of these and a couple of that. And that, was how this fantastic crunchy snacks came about.

4 portions

Dry ingredients:
Rolled oats , 2 cups or thereabouts
2 fistful of instant oats (because I needed to get rid of them)
2 fistful of unsweetened coconut flakes, more if you like
Whatever leftover nuts/seeds in the pantry. I used walnuts and pecans, about 2 fistfuls or thereabouts
2 heaps of coconut sugar
2 generous pinch of Maldon salt or any salt flakes

Wet ingredients:
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of honey

Preheat the oven to 180C. 
Prepare a flat tray, lined with silicon sheet. This is an essential step.
In a big bowl, toss all the ingredients.
Stir in oil and honey.
Spread the mixture evenly on the tray. Mind that the granola to be baked is too piled too thick for even cooking.
Bake at 180C for 20-21 minutes or until the granola browns.
Remove and gently swish granola to cool. I top dried fruits with the lot at this stage.
Allow the granola to cool and crisp before storing. To do earlier that that, condensation may happen and undo all your work.

  1. I love granola! The store bought ones can be rather pricey. I think it is wise to make at home seeing that it is quite simple!
