Ok, now let's talk about food! As it's a new year, I naturally want to start making things I haven't made before. So I've decided to start with a new breakfast/brunch: granola! A little bit more decadent than museli & the perfect brunch for the weekend.
Here's a link to the recipe :) It's from Super Natural Every Day, a cookbook I'm just loving at the moment.
Oh and look at those crunchy morsels of oats, walnuts, coconut, orange zest and currants, which are coated with a combination of butter & maple syrup!
Some may prefer their granola with just yoghurt, but I prefer some soy milk too.
Topped with caramelised banana, sliced nectarine and blueberries.
There was plenty of leftovers, which I stored in a nice jar.
But it's just so easy to eat...
And how easy it was to make! It's just a matter of combining the dry ingredients, then melting the butter, stirring in the maple syrup and pouring and mixing that well into the dry ingredients, so everything is coated with butter/maple syrup deliciousness! I can't help but wonder what I'll pop into my next batch. Dried figs, cinnamon, pepitas, sunflower seeds, raisins or hazelnuts...I could really go on...
Do you like making granola? What's your favourite combination?
