Granola is a breakfast staple, and is undoubtedly healthy with its high content of oats and nuts. Marie's recipe is a unique take on a classic, incorperating chia seeds and white mulberries; making it truly special when roasted to a perfect golden-brown.

How It's Made

Ingredients

  • 5 cups non-instant oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup raw European almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup White Mulberries
  • 3/4 cup cranberries sweetened with apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup European Pumpkin Seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F
  2. Roughly chop nuts. In a large bowl, mix the oats, nuts (without the pumpkin seeds), spices, sea salt and vanilla extract and put aside. In a casserole or bain-marie, melt the coconut oil on low heat. Remove from heat once melted and add it to the oat mix along with the maple syrup. Mix thoroughly until the coconut oil and maple syrup have covered all the oats and nuts.
  3. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread the mixture about 1 inch thick across the sheet. Be sure to spread the mixture so that it does not clump, like a large cookie. Bake on middle rack for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove oats from the oven and gently mix. Place back in the oven for another 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add the pumpkin seeds, and return to the oven for another 5 minutes. In the meantime, in a small bowl mix the cranberries, mulberries and chia. Remove oats from the oven and add the dry fruit and chia mix and lightly toss so that ingredients are distributed evenly. Let cool.
Serve granola with a homemade nut milk! Once cooled, the oats can be stored in an airtight glass jar or resealable bag. Add a label and ribbon to the glass jar to make a nice gift.
