Polar Night Granola

December 01, 2016

My son has gone nuts for this granola. He would like to eat this every morning, but his boring mother keeps making porridge too. So, we don't eat this on every breakfast, but often. This is a lovely way to start a new day during polar night and black winter season. 

11 dl (400 g) old fashioned oats 
2 dl (80 g) rice flakes 
1 dl (35 g) coconut flakes, coarsely crushed 
2 dl (170 g) brown sugar 
4 dl (250 g) peanuts 
1 dl (100 g) sunflower seeds 
0,5 dl (30 g) sesame seeds 
2 dl (200 g) water 
1 dl (90 g) coconut oil 
1 tsp ginger 
2 dl (1 cup, US) dried dates or plums 

Combine the flakes, sugar, roughly chopped nuts and seeds in a large bowl. Mix the water, oil and ginger and pour the wet-mix into the dry-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 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the temperature to 150°C and bake for 10 minutes. Make sure the granola is completely dry and remove from the oven. 

Allow the granola to cool for 30 minutes. Sprinkle dried dates or plums (cut in raisin-size pieces) on top. Stir well. Cool the granola completely. 

Store in an airtight jar. Enjoy with yoghurt.
