I love granola, especially when it’s crispy with a nice taste of roasted oat. And believe me, nothing  in the supermarkets is better than a home made granola, whatever the recipe is…

I am sharing my favorite one with you, and all those who tried it confirm that “it’s addictive” and my 4 yo daughter is always asking me to prepare it, apparently she’s dreaming about it!

You can obviously change the inclusions (cranberries, raisins, flax seeds, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts…) , flavor it to your taste (vanilla, cocoa powder, citrus zests…), just try to keep the same proportions of oat/inclusions.

Equipment

  • Scale
  • Sharp knife or nuts chopper
  • Large saucepan
  • Spatula
  • Baking tray

Ingredients
  

  • 90 g Almond
  • 50 g Pistachio
  • 50 g Pecan nuts
  • 110 g Acacia honey
  • 230 g Rollaed oat flakes
  • 50 g Coconut powder
  • 2 g Vanilla powder (or the seeds of one pod)
  • 1 pinch Tonka bean Optional
  • 100 g Pumpkin seeds
  • 15 g Chia seeds
  • 20 g Coconut oil
  • 10 g Grape seeds oil
  • 0.8 g Salt
  • 70 g Chopped dark chocolate Or chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven at 150°C.
  • Chop the almonds, pecan nuts and pistachios (I like to have large chunks). Roast them for 10 minutes. Let them cool.
  • Melt the honey (on low heat) in a large saucepan.
  • Pour the oat flakes on the honey and stir with a spatula.
  • Add the coconut powder, salt and vanilla (and tonka bean if you wish).
  • Add the two oils.
  • Add the pumpkin and chia seeds and stir.
  • Pour the mixture onto a large baking tray lined with parchment paper and spread it in an even layer.
  • If you wish to have a clumpy granola, press the layer evenly, you can also place a tray on it while baking it.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 150°C. Make sure to stir with the spatula (and press if you wish) every 5/10 minutes.
  • When you get a nice and uniform golden color, take it out of the oven and let it cool for at least 30 minutes. This is when it will become crispy. Avoid stirring it.
  • When it's completely cooled, add the roasted nuts and chopped chocolate.

Additional comments

Once properly cooled, store the granola in an airtight glass jar to preserve the crispiness and freshness.  

Bon appétit!
