Make Your Own Incredibly Tasty Organic Granola Recipe

By Larry Fisher

Everyone can make perfectly delicious and healthy breakfast at home. The most important thing is to get organic, so-called old fashioned oats. Raw, whole rolled oats are heart-healthy and chewy. Instead of them you can use quinoa flakes. Make sure all other ingredients are organically grown. You will find several suggestions here, so you should design your favorite organic granola recipe.

Pecan granola contains three mugs of organic oats, one mug sliced pecans, half mug of pepitas, one little spoon of cinnamon and a comparable measure of salt, maple syrup and coconut oil. Consolidate each one of these ingredients and put them in the oven. Stir every ten minutes until golden brown. Allow it to cool, and in the end, add dried apricots, sliced or chopped.

Line the pan with parchment paper or use silicone baking sheets. If you want to add some coconut flakes in your pecan specialty, insert them when stirring your mixture during baking process, not right away. You are also allowed to add more maple syrup if you want, or replace it with honey, or combine these ingredients. It will taste great, crispy and sweet, especially when you add some fresh fruits when serving.

Use different ingredients, according to your taste. Walnuts, almonds or pistachios, whole dried cherries, sunflower seeds, cranberries, you may combine whatever you find appropriate. When it comes to dried fruit, you can add them into mixture before baking, or when granola cools down. If you add dried fruits to cold, baked granola, this will preserve more vitamins, especially vitamin C.

Other crazy tasty things you can add are cocoa nibs, cashews white chocolate, walnuts or peanuts or something comparably heavenly. Your granola can be saved for maybe two weeks at room temperature, closed in some air-tight can, yet you can put it in the cooler, when it will be preserved for three months. Well, you will eat it before that, that's for sure.

One particularly tasty formula contains two mugs oats, one container peanuts and one vast spoon nutty spread, honey or maple syrup, coconut oil, coconut chips and sliced dried fruits, spiced with a smidgen of salt, cinnamon and ground ginger. It should be baked for approximately twenty minutes, let it cool and include some chocolate chips. You could also include fruits before or after, yet chocolate chips have to be added in finished mixture.

When baking granola, make sure to stir at least once or twice, rearranging ingredients in your baking pan, to make them brown equally. You will find organic gluten free oats as well, but you can use quinoa flakes instead, if you are gluten-intolerant. Some people don't add salt in, but this makes the whole thing much tastier. Cinnamon, vanilla, ground ginger or pumpkin spice blends improve taste.

Combine your most cherished tastes and don't be hesitant to try something new in your most adored mix. Maybe you will find unusual but incredibly tasty combinations of your own. Be imaginative and the result will stun you. Something like this cannot be bought. Moreover, in case your children help you in this process, they will surely enjoy their breakfast like never before.
