Bake With Charlynn : Granola Clusters

Granola-Clusters-2

Recipe
Yields 3 bottles, roughly 6 cups
Recipe adapted from Let’s Feast

 

Ingredients
• 3 cups rolled oats
• 1 cup raw nuts of choice, chopped (if nuts are already toasted, toss them in only after baking) (You could mix different kind of nuts as well)
• **1 cup shredded or flaked coconut (you could bake them together with the oats or you could just toss them in at the end)
• ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• ¼ cup light flavoured oil such as grapeseed or canola
• 1 egg white

Spices: You may use a combination of these or any others that take your fancy
• ¼ tspn cinnamon
• ¼ tspn nutmeg
• ¼ tspn allspice
• ¼ tspn ground ginger
• Pinch ground cloves

Add in at the end just before packaging
• Pinch of salt
• 1 cup dried fruit of choice
• ** Shredded coconut

Method
1. Heat oven to 150c.
2. Mix together the oats, nuts (although don’t add these now if you are using nuts that are already roasted … add them at the end with the dried fruit), spices, salt and coconut.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup or honey, brown sugar and oil. Now pour this liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and thoroughly stir to make sure it’s all coated.
4. Give the egg white a quick whisk until it’s just foamy and add this to the mix. Spread the granola out on an oven tray and bake for 35-45 minutes until it’s light golden brown, keep an eye on it towards the end of cooking time as it burns quickly.
5. Remove the tray from the oven and leave it to cool. At this stage, the granola will feel soft
6. Just leave it alone until it’s completely cool and has magically turned crunchy, then break it up into bite sized chunks and then gently toss through the dried fruit (and roasted nuts if you haven’t already added them beforehand in their raw state).
7. Store in an airtight container. Lasts for a couple of weeks.
