Seeing as we demolished the last batch of granola, we thought it was about time to make some more. This time we thought we'd push the boat out and make two different flavours, one being a little more extravagant than the other.
basic recipe, but half the oats into separate bowls and add the different nuts and seeds to each one. Do the same with the wet mixture so you can add spices (e.g. cinnamon) accordingly. Then once out of the oven just add whatever fruits and flavours to each one, and tadaa! You have two different flavoured granola's ready to devour.
This is a very rich and sweet granola packed with a punch. The oats are mixed with chopped almonds and pumpkin seeds then i zested three lemons and juiced one before putting the mixture into the oven, so the lemon would cook into the oats. Once out of the oven i chucked in dried blueberries, dried cherries and yoghurt covered raspberries (Laura removed the raspberries because they're dairy). Yum Yum.
This granola does what it says on the tin, and it's bloody lovely. It's Laura's favorite type of granola and incredibly good for you. At all stages we just stuffed it full of.. stuff. So this recipe is good for using up whatever you have left. It's got chopped walnuts, chopped almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and some other seed that i have no idea what they were. With the wet mixture i added a good teaspoon of cinnamon to warm your belly. Once out of the oven i added dried cherries, dried cranberries, raisins and cinnamon infused apple and raisin bits. Scrumptious.
