Granola

Ingredients

Organic rolled oats 500g

1/4 cup Sunflower seeds

1/4 cup Linseeds

1/4 cup Chia seeds

3/4 cupSultanas 

Maple Syrup 250 ml

Almond flakes or whole almonds crushed 1/4 cup

I love to top my berries and yoghurt with this Granola but you can always serve with some milk as a cereal or you can always make some chocolate balls by stirring in some melted chocolate and placing a table spoon of mixture in to cupcake papers and refrigerating.

Method

I empty a 500g bag of oats into a deep baking tray and then sprinkle over about a 1⁄4 cup of each of the seeds. I then pour over about 250ml of maple syrup and mix. I don’t like to add much because I want this recipe to be healthy and not full of sugar but you can always add more if you want clumpy lumps of granola. Mine is more of a baked muesli but just as tasty.

The key is to mix everything and keep checking and turning the oats every
15 minutes so there is an even colour throughout the mix. Bake at 180 degrees.
It takes about an hour, add the flaked almonds and sultanas for the last 15 minutes only as you don’t want them to burn.

 

Compote

 

Ingredients

I had a beautiful bunch of organic  rhubarb and apples from the local market. 

1 bunch Rhubarb

2 apples

1 tablespoon sugar

Splash water

 

Method

Chop your rhubarb and apple in to 1 inch cubes (don't need to pretty). Place everything in to a saucepan and gently heat until fruit is soft. Easy peasy!
