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!

chia pudding on the left and granola on the rightI love trail mix. It’s an easy way to eat healthy food as a snack.
Recently I discovered the granola and its a revelation.
I though granola was not for me because the oat (it didn’t look good to me, not sweet enough for me … Whatever).
Then, my best friend in Melbourne introduced me to the 1111Granola. I though this could be the new best friend of my breakfast and go along like horse and carriage with my chia pudding.
The 1111Granola is made home made with love by the owner Rob Rabba.

2 varieties are available so far Macadamia & Cranberries as well as Puffed Quinoa & Macadamia.
I’m a fan of the Macadamia & Cranberries, a mixture of macadamia nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Blended carefully with dried dates, cranberries and apricots. Our gourmet mix is coated with natural honey and spiced with cinnamon.
The Puffed Quinoa & Macadamia is Gluten Free with puffed quinoa, rice puffs and rice flakes, mixed with macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, blended with dried dates, cranberries and apricots. It’s is coated with natural honey and spiced with Cinnamon.

Did you know that granola is NOT muesli, granola is baked until crisp and sweetened unlike muesli! So now, we know the difference.
