Granola – Bar and Chocolate

I like this for its crunchy and nutty flavor.  It is the healthiest and yummiest cereal one can have.  My son and his friends  love to have this   filled in chocolate bar instead of having it in milk.. You can also serve this as a topping for various types of desserts.

I would love to try  muffins and  cookies with this mixture.   It is a very good way to give your children the wholesome benefit of oats, nuts and honey which they otherwise never eat.   With chocolate it’s tasted heavenly.

I made this last week but as you know schools were closed so I will be posting less often  and my computer is also very slow, its take lots of time to upload pictures.

Granola is a breakfast food and snack food, popular in North America, consisting of rolled oats, nuts, and honey. During the baking process mixture is stirred to maintain a loose, breakfast cereal type consistency.

 Recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup best quality cocoa
  • 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 cup white sesame seeds
  • 3/4 cup apple compote or applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup brown rice syrup or rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup clover honey or other runny honey
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 cups raw peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or sunflower oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 310 degrees F.

Mix everything together very well in a large mixing bowl. Spread the mixture evenly in 2 baking tins and bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour, turning over half-way through baking. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.

I  used flax seeds which is very good for digestion instead of sunflower seeds and instead of peanut I used almonds and sea salt instead of kosher salt and  maple syrup instead of rice syrup.
