I love granola!

23 Nov

my granola I never ate granola before January 2015 when I discovered 1111granola in melbourne. It was so good that my stock lasted less than a month. Then I started to hunt granola in Parisian supermarkets but never found the right one (in France, we have mostly muesli not granola and it’s not the same). So I bought it abroad while traveling.

My colleague, who studied at UCLA, told me it was super easy to cook and dared me to try …

I’m good at eating but not really at cooking … so I gave it a try!

The last granola I ate was peanut butter and nuts so let’s go for homemade peanut butter and nuts ganola.

I found a super easy recipe and try to gather the ingredients.

Here’s the list:

  • Peanut butter, 1/2 cup
  • Maple syrup, 1/2 cup
  • Oatmeal, 4 cups
  • Cinnamon powder, 2 tiny pinches
  • Mix of nuts, 3 handfuls
  • Raisins, whatever you want

And the instructions are easy to follow (even for me),

  • Mix the peanut butter and maple syrup and put it for 30 seconds in the microwave
  • Stir and make a beautiful paste
  • Pour the oatmeal and stir to make it homogeneous
  • Put the cinnamon powder in and stir
  • Put the nuts in and stir

… Basically if you can stir, you will make it!

DON’T put the raisins in, don’t or they will dry, get black and basically melt and burned … and we don’t want that … I did during my first attempt so I prefer to share the info before you try it too …

  • Preheat the oven to 210C/410F
  • Spread the mix on waxed paper … I don’t have any so I put it in my silicone baking pan in the shape of a star …
  • Then when the oven is ready, turn down the heat to 180C/156F and let it cook  for 12 minutes.

And here it is! I have a full week stock of granola read to dive in my chia pudding every morning !!

If I can do it, so can you!
