A while ago I had a stroll around a local Whole Foods shop and spotted some apple granola which I immediately thought would taste absolutely delicious, but the price of it put me off a little bit so I didn't buy it. So as I didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money for something I can just do myself for much cheaper, I got some granola ingredients and got baking.
For the Granola I used:
- about four mugs of oats
- chia seeds
- goji berries
- grated hazelnuts
- melted coconut butter and some honey to unify the dry ingredients
Then I put them in the preheated at 160°C oven and baked them for about 20 minutes. If you're unsure about when to take them out, carefully take a small spoon and try some. Once I felt like it was crunchy enough, I put it in a glass container to cool down.
For the dried apples:
- three red apples to make two full trays
- soak in lemon/water mixture for 30 minutes to avoid browning
- bake at 95°C for about two hours, turn around after one hour
When everything is done, just cut the apples in smaller pieces and add them to your ready granola mixture! I can imagine it tasting really nice with added cinnamon, but I currently don't have any at home.
Let me know what you think about this recipe, although I don't bake very often, I really enjoyed making this as it is super easy and tastes delicious!
