We are both profound lovers of granola and muesli. Our oatmeal-buckwheat-nut granola is not just healthy but also very tasty.
For us, a really nice granola is crunchy and comes with a fruity twist, but it isn’t too sweet. If you agree, than this is the perfect recipe for you.
Due to the artificial ingredients the industry is adding to their products, it’s definitely healthier to make the granola yourself – and like this, you know exactly what’s in it. Luckily, it is very simple to produce your own granola – and trust me, after you tried it once, you will never eat an industrial product again. Your own homemade granola will become your best friend for breakfast or maybe even for lunch.
Remember, you can add granola for example to:
- Yoghurt or curd
- Ice cream or nice cream
- Smoothie bowls
- 150 g oatmeal
- 150 g buckwheat
- 50 g sunflower seeds
- 50 g peanuts
- 50 g of almonds
- 60 ml coconut oil
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 pinch of salt
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Some splashes of orange blossom water
- 1 scratched vanilla stem
- Peel from one orange
- 120 g dried or freeze-dried fruits (barberries, apricots, cherries, freeze-dried raspberries, freeze-dried strawberries)
- 1 cup of yoghurt
- 5 big strawberries
- Preheat the oven to 150 degrees. Cover the baking tray with baking paper.
- Mix all the ingredients except the dried and freeze-dried fruits and spread them evenly on the baking tray. Put the tray in the oven and roast the ingredients golden brown for about one hour. Stir once after 30 minutes.
- Take the granola out of the oven and add the dried and freeze-dried fruit. Stir it well and let it cool down. Afterwards, put it all into an airtight can. You should consume it within 3 weeks, otherwise it loses it’s crunch.
- Mix (for example) some natural joghurt with pureed strawberries and sprinkle some of the granola on top.
