Homemade Granola

Snacking is an inevitable part of our day, which is why it's important to pick the right one. Healthy, tasty, and homemade, granola is a nutrient-dense food packing both flavour and goodness of its rich ingredients. Great as a mid-day snack or a breakfast bowl topping, making granola at home just got easier with this recipe in the 8th volume of our Food For Thought series.

Ingredients

Figs, almonds, raisins, dates 1 cup
Oatmeal ½ cup
Butter ¼th cup
Honey 4 tablespoon
Chocolate half a bar, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Roughly chop all the nuts and place them in a wide bowl.
  2. Lightly toast oatmeal for ten minutes in a heavy-bottomed pan and transfer it to a bowl & add the chocolate.
  3. Melt butter while mixing in honey, and pour over the mixture. The chocolate will begin to melt, giving it a rich, gooey texture.
  4. Bind this mixture together and roll it out between two butter papers or cling film to desired thickness (approx. ¾ of an inch).
  5. Cut into equal sizes and store in an airtight jar. Use as a yoghurt topping for breakfast or as a mid-day snack.

Chef's Notes

You may add dehydrated fruits or any other dry fruits from your kitchen cabinet. Honey can be substituted with brown sugar as per taste.
