Homemade Granola

This weeks Friday Five O’clock Feed invited Elle, International Account Manager at Rude Health, to show us her recipe for homemade granola. Granola is a moreish mix of your favourite grains, seeds, nuts and fruit all baked together and sweetened. You’ll need any variation of these to make your own. If you’re like us, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is. Watch Elle make the recipe here


Recipe

200g Rude Health 5 Grain 5 Seed Porridge
100g Rude Health Daily Oats
1 handful of Rude Health Puffed Spelt
40g extra virgin olive oil
1 handful of soft dried figs
1 small handful of inca berries
1 small handful of goji berries
120ml maple syrup
1 tbsp light tahini
1 egg white, whisked
1 handful of almonds, chopped
1 handful of coconut flakes
1 handful of pecans, chopped
1 handful of pumpkin seeds
1 handful of sesame seeds
1 pinch of salt


Method

  1. Heat the oven to 150c and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2.  Toast the sesame and pumpkin seeds in a pan until a good half of the pumpkin seeds have split/pop and the sesame seeds begin to turn golden.
  3. Melt together the olive oil, maple, salt and tahini on a low heat until it comes together as a smooth-ish syrup. Take it off the heat and allow it to cool slightly.
  4. Mix all the dry ingredients, aside from the dried fruit, together in a large bowl.
  5. Add the melted syrup mix and then toss in the whisked egg white.
  6. Spread the mixture across a baking tray or two.
  7. Cook for 30-35 minutes. Stir once mid baking for a more clustery granola or regularly for a looser textured granola.
  8. Leave to cool in the tray a little before stirring in the fruit.
  9. Store in an air tight container. It’s most delicious eaten within a week.
