Clean-out-the-cupboard granola

Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipeOnce in the blue moon I like to organise my cupboard so it is easy to find stuff I need. The cupboard gets usually cluttered with small random packages of of seeds, nuts and dry fruits (all that just from trying many baking recipes). But once in the while I feel like cleaning it all out by using it up on one something big. That tends to be granola!Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipeI must admit that granola is not the healthiest breakfast item (even though some people consider it to be on the healthy side), but it so tasty! It transforms a very boring yogurt and fruit into something more pudding like. And it is soooo useful when you run out of your regular cereal!Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipeSo here is what you can use up and how to make your Clean-out-the-cupboard granola...

CLEAN-OUT-THE CUPBOARD GRANOLA

  • 500g oat flakes (or any other flakes, I used barley flakes here)
  • 450g seeds, nuts and fruits (will try to mention as much as I can remember):
    • sunflower seeds
    • poppy seeds
    • sesame seeds
    • pumpkin seeds
    • hazel nuts, chopped
    • walnuts, chopped
    • pecan nuts, chopped
    • almond flakes
    • coconut flakes
    • raising
    • apricots, chopped
    • dried cranberries
    • dried mango, chopped
  • 200ml coconut oil (or any other oil that does not taste strong and overpowering)
  • 300g honey (or golden syrup or brown caster sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • spices (I used 1tsp cinnamon, but you can use ground cloves, nutmeg or few tbsp cocoa power)

1. Place all ingredients (except dried fruit if using) into the pot and "cook" it on the low heat for 5-10min till honey disappeared into the mixture and everything is well combined.Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipe2. Now spread the mixture onto large baking tray (use two trays if possible so it bakes evenly) and bake it in 180C oven for 30-40min. Check granola every 15 min to check if it's not burning and mix it to turn around. Add dried fruits 20min before the finish. The granola should be golden colour, it will become crunchy once it cools down.Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipe3. Once it cools down store it in jars and enjoy it with yogurt (or milk) and fruits.Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipe Clean-out-the-cupboard granola recipeHave a lovely weekend!
