homemade granola

IMG_3912 IMG_3924 IMG_3925

..is actually very easy to make. i used only organic ingredients. still, it turns out cheaper than buying it.

this is what i used: *a few cups of oatmeal (lets say 5-6), *2 cups of nuts ( i used walnuts and pecans)*1-2 cups of seeds (sesame and pumpkin seeds in my case),*1-2 cups of puffed quinoa,*1 cup of coconut flakes,*one cup of raisins (or other dried fruits).*one teaspoon of cinnamon *1/2 cup of canola oil,*almost one cup of hot water, *almost one cup of honey.

*first, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. (except for the raisins)

*secondly,mix all the wet stuff in another bowl.

*pour it over the dry stuff, mix until it blended well.

*spread the mixture on to two baking plates.

* bake it in the oven, in 150 degrees, for about half an hour.( i did take the plates out to mix the granola a few times. i also alternated their place in the oven a few times.) anyhow, at one point you can see that the granola is toasted. then take it out, and let it cool before you add any dried fruits. then keep it in a well sealed container.

c’est tout! very simple, very tasty…

jag har aldrig hort uttrycket granola forrut, men det ar samma sak som 'toasted muesli' antar jag? Ser gott ut iallafall!

yaelian, ja nu när jag har insett hur enkelt det verkligen är, då känns det väldigt bortkastat att köpa.

karin, jajamän, jag trodde dom sa granola i australien också? eller är det mera amerikanskt? gott&enkelt.
