Easy peasy lemon squeezy
Aktualisiert: 20. Mai 2020
It might seem a little unorthodox for a granola company to give out granola recipes, but truth be told, I have too many ideas for granola I want to share, and with the current circumstances, this may not be the right time for launching another seasonal flavor.
But as summer will be here before we know it, I thought I would share a version of the summer seasonal flavor I've had in mind since last summer, Lemon Berry.
Granola is actually super easy to make. And you can easily make your own if you are willing to buy all the individual ingredients and put a little work in. And by work, I mean pouring ingredients into a bowl, stirring with a big wooded spoon and popping in the oven. Granola is also one of those foods that if you change something in the recipe, it doesn't really make a big critical difference (like if you are baking a cake and sub flour or yogurt for butter) but it will alter the flavor a bit. For example, you can change almonds for another nut of your choice, like cashews. You can swap out raspberries for blueberries or strawberries, or no berries. It's good without also. You can use honey or coconut sugar or agave instead of the maple syrup, but if you use agave, you will need much less. You can cut out the syrup all together, but it may be a bit tart.
350g Gluten free oats
100g Coconut flakes
30g Chia seeds
40g Coconut oil
120g Maple Syrup
Zest and juice from one small lemon (around 2tbspns juice)
15g Dried raspberries
Preheat your oven to 150ºC
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients (except berries!), then add all wet ingredients, stir really well so all the oat flakes are coated. pour onto 2 baking sheets in a thin layer. If you pour too thick, it won't brown evenly. Pop in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, take out and check that the color is even and carefully stir to expose any lighter parts. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, depending on oven, until golden brown.
Remove from oven, and let cool. Once cool top with the berries. or any other dried fruit of your choice. Store in an airtight container. We prefer the jar. And enjoy!
