LOVENUTTY GRANOLA No. 1

Lovenutty Granola No.1
Jar of granola with strawbs and melon

With the gentle sweetness of Jaggery (unrefined cane sugar) and maple syrup, this granola is ideal paired with unsweetened coconut or almond yoghurt and fresh fruit – and a drizzle of white almond butter, of course!

Jaggery is an Indian/Asian/African unrefined cane sugar that has its’ molasses – and therefore micronutrients and rich, malty flavour – intact! It can be found at Asian supermarkets some heath-food stores.

Although this recipe seems to have a lot of ingredients, they are all easy-to-find store cupboard foods.

It’s easy to make too: mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then mix together, then bake in the oven!

I suggest adding the dried fruit just before the end of the baking process stops it from drying out and keeps it soft and moist.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup extra virgin coconunt oil
  • 3 tbsp white almond butter (optional)
  • 4 cups jumbo oats
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup (110g) Jaggery (found at good Asian supermarkets)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup (100g) pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup (100g) sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup (80g) chia seeds
  • 1 cup (45g) coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup (30g) cacao nibs
  • 1 cup (130g) dried blueberries
  • 1/2 cup (50g) dried goji berries


Directions

  1. Oven on at 170C/340F
  2. Melt the coconut oil over a bain marie or in a heatproof bowl in the oven on a low heat.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine oats, seeds, nuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon and salt.
  4. When the coconut oil has melted, mix in vanilla extract and maple syurp and stir to combine.
  5. Add coconut oil mix into large bowl of dry ingredients and mix until evenly coated.
  6. spread as a 1-2cm (0.5-1 inch) thick layer in a lined baking tray and bake for 25 minutes, by which time, the granola should be looking nice and toasty.
  7. Take out of the oven and carefully stir in the dried blueberries and gojis and return the tray to the over for another 6-8 minutes (adding the dried fruit at this stage prevents them burning and keeps it nice and moist).
  8. Remove the granola from the oven and leave to cool on the tray without disturbing it until completely cool.
  9. When cool, break into clumps [as small or large as you like it], and enjoy with fresh fruit and natural coconut or almond yoghurt.
