Homemade granola

Danish recipe below

 

I almost always have a batch of homemade granola in my kitchen – I use it on top of nicecream, smoothie bowls, oats or fruit salad. Oh or on these banana babies 🙂

I know you can buy them cheap and delicious in the shops, but if you look at the ingredient list they are almost aways full of added refined sugar and vegetable oils of bad quality. But if you make it yourself you know exactly what is in there.

It is really easy, and if you make a big batch, you have for a long time. This recipe contains a lot of nuts and seeds, and it might seem both expensive and high in calories. But the flavour is good and rich, and you don’t need much, so it lasts for a looooong time.

I don’t use specific amounts when I make it, and really you can use whatever you have in your kitchen. Choose your favorite mix of nuts and seeds and try to experiement with different spices.

But here comes my favorite version of homemade granola. The amounts are only approximates.

Homemade granola

  • 1 cup nuts (a mix of almonds and walnuts)
  • 1 cup seeds (a mix of sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)
  • 4 cups oats (or buckwheat or rye or whatever you like)
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconutflakes (or coconut flour)
  • 1-2 cups dried fruits (I prefer raisins, mulberries and dried apple, but you can use a apricot, cranberries, figs etc.)
  • 3 tbsp sweetener (I use agave, but use whatever you prefere)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (or whater if you want it oil free)
  • 3 tsp spices (cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, ginger)

 

Turn the oven on 200 degrees. Chop the nuts coarsely. Combine coconut oil and sweetener in a sauce pan and heat until the oil is melted. Stir in the spices.

Put nuts, seeds and oats (everything exept the dried fruits) in a big bowl. Pour the coconut oil and sweetener over and combine well. Spread everything out on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven until golden and crispy (20-25 minutes), stir around a couple of times so it doesn’t get burned.

Let it cool before you add the dried fruits. Store the granola in an airtight container

 

Enjoy 🙂

 

 

Hjemmelavet mysli

  • 1 cup nødder (min favoritkombination er mandler og valnødder)
  • 1 cup kerner/frø (jeg bruger solsikkefrø, græskarkerner og sesamfrø)
  • 4 cups grovvalsede havregryn (eller boghvedeflakes eller ruggryn eller hvad du nu har)
  • ½ cup usødede kokosflager
  • 3 spsk sødning (jeg bruger agavesirup, men du kan bruge din favorit)
  • 3 spsk kokosolie (eller vand hvis du ønsker den oliefri)
  • 3 tsk krydderier (kanel, kardemomme, vanilje, ingefær)
  • 1-2 cups tørret frugt (mine yndlings er rosiner, multebær og tørret æble. Men abrikoser, figner, dadler og tranebær fungerer også)

Tænd ovnen på 200 grader.

Hak nødderne groft. Kom kokosolie og sødning i en lille gryde og opvarm det til olien er smeltet. Kom krydderierne i her.

Bland nødder, frø, gryn og kokos i en stor skål (alt på nær det tørrede frugt). Hæld kokosolie-blandingen over og rør godt rundt. Fordel blandingen på en bageplade og bag den i ovnen til det er gyldent og sprødt (20-25 minutter). Rør rundt et par gange undervejs så det ikke brænder på.

Lad det køle af inden du blander de tørre frugter i. Opbevares i lufttæt beholder.
