Very Nutty Chocolate Granola

Another favorite recipes of mine from Nigella’s, and it had every bit of gorgeousness in it. I added a few more variety of nuts in the granola, because I love the crunch and taste of the nuts.

And you do need a large bowl for this, since there’s is so much stuff to put in; also I found it tremendously satisfying, seeing all the ingredients pile up one another. You can have this granola anytime during the day, serve as breakfast with yogurt, sprinkle on top of vanilla ice-cream, and a very healthy snack to pick at.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup of rolled/jumbo oat,
  • 1/4 cup of walnut,
  • 1/4 cup of hazelnut,
  • 1/2 cup of peanut,
  • 1/2 cup of sesame seed,
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower seed,
  • 3/4 cup of apple sauce,
  • 1/4 cup of golden syrup,
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar,
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil,
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon,
  • 1 tsp of allspice,
  • 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg,
  • 1 tbsp of cocoa powder,

Very straight-forward, just tumble everything in a bowl, stir to mix, scrap into a grease tray and bake in 170C oven for 35-40 minutes.

Do watch out around half hour time, because the sugar can burns very easy. Once you see the top is deep brown color and the nut is toasted, it’s ready. Let the granola to cool and store in a jar up to 1 week.

You can ring the change of nut or seed you want to put in. Try not to use honey to substitute the syrup, because it’ll make the granola very chewy, and you want it to be crisp and crunchy.
