Homemade granola

Singlemade: homemade granola

For a while now I’ve been known among family and friends for my ‘Minnemade’ granola. I’ve spent a long time finetuning the recipe and it’s been worked out to within grams and minutes. But the recipe has a lot of ingredients and takes a lot of work, so it isn’t single-proof.

A poll on Instagram showed that there’s a lot of interest for a granola recipe, so I devised a new, simple recipe. A basic granola that’s delicious by itself, but that you can add to as you please!

And don’t believe that granola’s just for breakfast! It gives a lovely crunch to salads and it’s great on (n)ice cream! You can use it in a smoothie or as a topping! Go nuts!  🙂

Recipe Notes

* I love crushed nuts. You can chop them with a knife or throw them in a mincer for a few seconds. Or put them in a bag and smack ‘em with a rolling pin! #myfavouriteway

** Every oven is different and the baking time can differ. Stay close and take note of the best baking time for your oven! 🙂

Tip: Enrich the granola with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seed,... After it’s cooled, you can also add dried fruits!
Make sure not to bake grated coconut, because it’ll burn. You can add it to the granola for the last 2 minutes in the oven or just add it afterwards.

Kim’s feedback started like this: ‘I’m SO happy with this granola recipe! Even the kids loved it and they usually only like sandwiches with chocolate spread! 😉 ’
Kim’s a fan because it’s a great basic recipe that she can pimp as she likes. And pimp it she did: she added 2 tablespoons of linseeds, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds and 2 tablespoons of mixed seeds. Finally, she added some grated coconut (see the tips).
Kim’s tip : use coconut oil with a third of roasted sesame oil, it adds to the flavour!

Caroline was impressed with the granola as well, especially with the effect of adding a pinch of salt. Caroline’s tip: reduce the oil and honey by adding a little water!
