This recipe was inspired by holly’s toasted granola http://hollyandflora.com/2014/07/02/toasty-whole-grain-granola-with-dried-cherries-dark-chocolate/
I have a wheat intolerance and a nut allergy so decided to adapt the recipe to suit me, this is my version.
1 cup of oats
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon quinoa
2 tablespoons of treacle (cane sugar)
sea salt and cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon of mixed spice
1/4 cup of coconut oil
a packet of mixed dried fruit, cranberries,blueberries and cherries
1. mix all ingredients except dried fruit
2. spread onto baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
3. bake for about 25 mins at 150 c
4. when cool add dried fruit
5. put into airtight containers
This recipe worked really well for me, I like the taste the mixed spice gives it and treacle is easier to work with than honey.
I have had some on it’s own and with yogurt both delicious.
The good thing is I can carry some in a small tub as a snack, to fight the hunger pangs.
Next venture to try a take on apple crumble using it as the topping.
Now that I have the basic recipe there is no end to the variations I could make. Different fruit , different spices.
