Legendary Breakfast Granola

December 16, 2015

I always have home-made granola in my kitchen. I simply cannot start a day without some crunchy granola on creamy yoghurt in a beautiful bowl. Ingredients and amounts vary depending on my mood, but often my starting point is an old granola recipe by Anna Bergenström.

Why this breakfast food came to my mind now? I'm writing a bread blog, aren't I? Well, it's not nearly as strange as you might think. Granola is part of my weekly baking day. It goes into the oven just after breads. And, the recipe has been a huge success among my friends. I cannot remember how many of them has asked (and got) the recipe. Everybody loves it! Granola is also a great last-minute Christmas gift and a perfect beginning for those lazy Christmas mornings. There are lots of good reasons why I got sidetracked and decided to share this coveted granola recipe instead of a new bread recipe this week. Enjoy!

This mango-raisin granola is one of my favorites, linseed-almond-cranberry granola is another. 

6 dl (200 g) rolled rye flakes 
3 dl (100 g) large oat flakes
2 dl (100 g) oat flakes
1 dl (40 g) rice flakes
4 dl (250 g) cashew nuts
1 dl (50 g) hazelnuts
2 dl  (200 g) sunflower seeds
2 dl (100 g) pumpkin seeds
1 dl (35 g) shredded coconut
2 dl (170 g) cane sugar 
2 dl (200 g) water
0,5 dl (45 g) canola oil (or other vegetable oil, not olive oil)
dried mango

Combine the flakes, roughly chopped nuts, seeds, shredded coconut and cane sugar in a large bowl. Mix the water and oil and pour it into the flake mix. Stir well. Line a large baking tray with a baking paper sheet and spread the granola on top. 

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the baking tray on the center rack of the heated oven. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the granola is a light and golden brown. 

Allow the granola cool for 30 minutes. Sprinkle raisins and dried mango (cut in raisin-size pieces) on top. Stir well. Cool the granola completely.

Store in an airtight jar. Enjoy with yoghurt.

Is this a Christmas gnome? Little hands can never resist the cooling granola on the oven.
