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.
Keeping
Several weeks in an airtight jar.
