We get many requests for the Dorset House granola recipe so here it is for you to try at home:
This granola recipe makes 2 large kilner jars worth
450g organic jumbo oats
250g seeds (sunflower / sesame / poppy)
75g coconut flakes
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
125g rice syrup (we use Clearspring)
85g local honey
175g apple compote
50g muscovado sugar
150g whole almonds
100g whole pecans
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
200g organic raisins
Mix all of the ingredients except the raisins in a large bowl until very well coated. (If you don’t have apple compote available it works perfectly well without it – but it does provide a lovely extra depth of flavour when you have a glurt of apples in autumn) Pour into 2 large baking trays and bake in a medium oven stirring every 10 mins or so. Keep baking until the granola is a deep golden colour but take care that the nuts don’t burn. In our Aga this takes approx. 40 mins.
When the granola is ready, remove from the oven and stir in the raisins. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight jar.
Delicious served with a lovely thick organic yogurt like our Brown Cow Organics and seasonal fruit.
