Granola – home made

I know, I know..every blogger eventually posts a recipe for home-made granola….I do it too, before the hype is over. Actually, this is another test for spoiling future guests. So bear with me…

Ingredients
200 g rolled oats (me, a mix of typical swiss oats)
100 g mixed seeds (sunflower, pumkin seeds, sesame and whatever else you fancy)
100 g mixed nuts, coarsly chopped with a knife, not in a blender!
35 g coconut oil
35 g honey (me: lavender honey)
Spices such as vanilla, cinnamon and ginger
50 g dried mixed berries (cranberries, cherries, blueberries)
50 g dried apricots
I did not use any additional sugar!

Heat the oven to 150c and prepare a baking tray, covering it with a baking sheet

In a bowl, mix the oats, seeds and nuts and stir well.
In case the oil and the honey are not liquid, melt the two ingredients together in a pan, let cool off for a few minutes and then add to the dry mix and stir until the dry mix is fully moist.

Add the spices and mix well again. Now place the granola mix on the baking tray, distribute it well. Put in the oven for 40-45 minutes, gently stirring every 15 minutes until the granola is golden brown and dry. I did reduce the heat to 100 c after 25 minutes as it became quickly golden brown, but not dry. Every oven is different, I suggest you watch it closely and adapt temperatures if needed.
Meanwhile chop the dry fruits and once the granola is done, stir it under the hot granola.

Now let completely cool off before transferring into jars.
