Granola


Granola
Granola is a tasty, crunchy cereal mix with nuts and seeds. Often thought of as an American version of muesli, it is bound with a little maple syrup and toasted in the oven.

This is simple to prepare and goes well with lots of other things (dairy, fresh or stewed fruit, etc.) for a delicious breakfast.

Remarks

The recipe is for guidance, so feel free to adapt it to suit your own taste or whatever dried fruit or cereals you have to hand. But I do recommend keeping to the basic proportion of half rolled oats, half other ingredients.

For the oil, opt for one with a neutal flavour, such as groundnut or sunflower.

Once your granola is cooked and cooled, you can add softer dried fruits that would suffer if cooked: apricot, orange, banana, raisins, etc.

If you don't have maple syrup, you can use honey instead.

Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).
