Delectable Granola by Frances
with Rolled Oats

Made with Harraways
Rolled Oats
This is a template for you to design your own healthy breakfast treat, the one constant is Harraways Rolled Oats, no quick cooking oats here please, and banana! Yes, those overripe ones you put in the freezer to use - one day – in banana bread or muffins. NO fats or sweetener required.

Basic mix: Additions before baking:
• 4 cups of Harraways Rolled Oats (your choice)
• ½ cup pumpkin seeds add ½ cup more
• ½ cup sunflower seeds add ½ cup more
• ½ cup of other seeds (sesame, flaxseed)
• 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamon, ginger
• 2 overripe bananas (frozen ones great)

Additions AFTER baking
• 2 cups whole nuts dry roasted
• 1 cup dried fruits, goji berries, blueberries, cranberries
1. Preheat oven to 175̊C,
2. Line two large low sided pans, with baking paper making sure you have a 3cm edge up the side.
3. Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
4. Mash the bananas, use a small whizz if you have one
5. Sprinkle over the spice and mix it well into the banana pulp. If using frozen bananas, thaw first skin on, drain, peel then whizz.
6. Pour the banana mixture over the dried ingredients and mix very well. I’ve found using my Danish whisk excellent, but any large flat wire whisk or wooden spoon will work.
7. Spread the mixture evenly out over the two pans.
8. Bake for 10 mins.
9. Take pans out of the oven and mix well bringing the edges in.
10. Place pans into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Reposition the pans if necessary.
11. Take pans out of the oven and place on a rack.
12. After 15-20 minutes pour the baked granola into a large clean dry bowl, and add other yummy dry ingredients.
13. When completely cooled store in a large jar/container with lid.

Keeps well.

- I buy packets of ‘own brand’ dry roasted nuts to add to this mix. Nuts don’t roast evenly with the
oats unless you chop them up and I like the nuts whole. You could just dry roast them separately.
- The banana coats the oats well leaving a ‘is that a hint of is that banana, smell, taste?’ You don’t miss the oils or honey etc promise!
- My favourite as you can see in this mix is almonds, cashews, and goji berries. I also upped the pumpkin and sunflower seed.
- Enjoy your ¼ cup serving with fresh seasonal fruit, stewed apple, or rhubarb and top with
yoghurt. This will keep you satisfied all morning.
