Sharon’s Granola/ recipe & image by Sharon Minkoff

“This Granola is the only reason I get out of bed in the morning!”
Basic recipe:

1 kg rolled oats or Gluten free rolled oats (not quick cooking ones)

1 cup oil

1 cup honey and brown sugar mix (or just one of them – I like the mix)

generous half cup dessicated coconut

pinch of salt

a few drops vanilla essence

​Additional extras:
Any mix of nuts or seeds:

Almonds, (my fav.) pecans, walnuts – your choice
Sunflower/pumpkin/flax/sesame (sesame is very good)
Dried fruits optional, to be added after cooking – cranberries, raisins, etc.
Mix all the ingredients – not the dried fruit – and spread on a baking sheet or flat tin.
I use parchment paper so it doesn’t stick. Bake in a SLOW oven – thats important –
320F/160C. Max. Cook for about 40 minutes or until its golden brown. Keep your eye
on it, give it a mix around from time to time but don’t break up too many of the
clumps because they taste good. Be really careful not to overcook or cook too hot– it
dries out.
Take it out and let it cool. It hardens when it cools.
Best, in my opinion, eaten with thick natural yogurt and fresh fruit especially
strawberries!
