Billionaires’ Granola

Perfect for “kefir breakfast” this gut-healthy granola with 12 different plant based ingredients is great on the diversity front. The orange peel makes it taste really special.  When I say cup in the recipe below, it’s basically a ratio, so use whatever cup size you like.  A ½ cup measure (120 ml) makes a liter jar of granola.    

 

Ingredients

  • 3 x cups whole rolled oats
  • 1 x cup of nuts (e.g 1/3 almonds, 1/3 pistachios, 1/3 pecans)
  • 1 x cup of seeds  (e.g. 1/3 sesame, 1/3 pumpkin, 1/3 sunflower)
  • 0.5 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 0.5 cup rapeseed or extra virgin olive oil ( you can’t taste it, but go easy if you’re not sure about the EVOO
  • teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a couple of drops of Vanilla essence ( optional)
  • 1 x cup dried fruit ( e.g. 1/3 raisins, 1/3 cranberries,1/3 candied orange peel)

 

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 150°C fan
  2. In a bowl mix the oats, nuts and seeds, cinnamon and vanilla. 
  3. Add the oil and maple syrup and stir well.
  4. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15 mins.  
  5. Stir and bake for another 5 mins, until golden and crispy.  Don’t worry if it’s slighty wet looking it does dry.
  6. Stir in the dried fruit.
  7. When cooled put in jar.
