GranolaRecipe by Jamie Oliver, adapted by me
2 cups quick cook oatmeal, not instant (I used rolled oats)
1 heaped cup mixed nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, pecans)
1/4 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, sesame)
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp ground cinnamon (I also included ground clove, cardamom and nutmeg)
1 1/2 cups dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, apricots, strawberries)
5 Tbl maple syrup or honey (I used Greek honey because I just happened to have some in the pantry)
5 Tbl olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Put your dry ingredients, including the coconut and cinnamon but not the dried fruit, on a sheet pan (next time I won't include the coconut in this step because it got a little burnt). Stir well and smooth out. Drizzle with the maple syrup or honey and the olive oil and stir again.
- Place the pan in the preheated oven for 25-30. Every 5 minutes or so, take the granola out and stir it, then smooth it down with a wooden spoon and put it back into the oven.
- While it's toasting, roughly chop up any large dried fruit.
- When the granola is nice and golden, remove it from the oven, mix in the dried fruit, and let it cool down.
