ginger nut granola.


i've been loving all kinds of granola in recent months, especially anything with honey, nuts and oats. even with the best nutty flavours i've found, there's always been some pesky dried fruit, raisins and sultanas lurking in there somewhere. so i thought, why not try out my own? 
with a self confessed sweet tooth, i wanted to create something which tasted sweet without a need to have sugar sprinkled on top. so with lots of nuts and seeds in there, i stirred in some stem ginger syrup for a zingy breakfast kick. 


shopping list.
♥ 250g oats
♥ 100g sunflower seeds
♥ 100g pumpkin seeds
♥ 100g flaked almonds
♥ 50g walnut halves, roughly crushed
♥ 1 tbsp stem ginger syrup 
♥ 1 tbsp olive oil
♥ a pinch or two of sea salt

armed with a new kilner jar and a bunch of my favourite nuts and seeds, i set about simply measuring out ingredients to make a batch of around 600g of homemade granola.

preheat your oven to 150 degrees c.


stir together all the ingredients in a large bowl and make sure the dry ingredients are coated as much as possible. spread out on a baking tray; if it isn't non stick you could line the baking paper or grease with butter/soya butter.


bake for 45 minutes, checking every 10 minutes and shuffling the tray to rotate the mix. my corners tended to brown first so i gently used a wooden spoon to scoop this towards the middle.


allow to cool.


pour into a pretty jar of your choice. baking paper would help for this as you could create a little funnel to transfer it. 


this lasted me roughly 10 breakfasts, served with almond milk and occasionally a handful of fresh strawberries. 

i couldn't get enough of the mix of sweet stem ginger treats amongst toasted oats, flaky almonds and now and then a crunchy walnut with a hint of salt. i was rather pleased with the results, even if i do say so myself :) 

onto my second batch and looking forward to trying other flavours... any ideas?
