There are a few recipes that are part of my absolute standard repertoire in the kitchen: pizza and pasta dough, meatballs, pancakes, … and, among a few other things, homemade granola. With this simple but delicious recipe, all doors are open for a tasty, healthy breakfast.
The basic ingredients are rolled oats and spelt, honey and some oil. That’s it. The rest is up to you! Personally, I like to add a variety of nuts and dried berries. Depending on your taste, chocolate chunks, seeds or coconut flakes are also a great addition to this basic recipe. So you can pinpoint what lands in your cereal bowl (and what doesn’t! *cough* raisins *cough*) and this recipe also saves you from the large amount of sugar that is often found in the cereal you can get at the supermarket.
- 150g rolled oats
- 150g rolled spelt
- 1 tbsp chopped almonds
- 1 tbsp chopped hazelnuts
- 1 tbsp cashews
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 tbsp of dried fruits / chocolate pieces / coconut flakes
Preheat the oven to 180° C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix rolled oats, spelt, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, honey and oil in a bowl. Spread the grain-nut mixture evenly on the tray and bake for about 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Make sure that the granola doesn’t turn too dark or gets burned. Remove the muesli from the oven and let it cool down completely. Meanwhile, cut the dried fruits into small pieces and mix with the cooled cereal.
What does your perfect muesli look like? And the most important of all questions: raisins or no raisins ?!
Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
