Muesli and granola are my favorite breakfast meals. Paired with fruit they give you a powerful start into the day.
For a while I have been looking for a simple and kind of healthy granola recipe. I got inspired by Simone, our Airbnb host in Copenhagen, last weekend. She was so kind to invite us for breakfast on the Sunday morning and made us here home-made granola with yoghurt. Yummm.
I couldn’t resist to try my own version of it once back home and here is the result:
Ratio: 1/2 cup of seeds & raisins on 1 large tablespoon honey
Simone used nuts as well (hazelnuts and almonds if I recall it right) and skipped the raisins. It’s up to you to decide which seeds or nuts you want to combine. Definitely use honey instead of brown or white sugar.
1) Preheat a pan and put a large scoop of honey in it as soon as the pan is warm (use medium heat, you don’t want to burn it)
2) While stirring let the honey melt. Then add your mix of seeds and raisins and keep on stirring.
3) Wait for the honey to caramelize. You will notice the caramelization by the change of color that will go from light brown to brown. Don’t wait for a dark brown nuance, that might burn your seeds.
4) Serve while still warm or let cool down and store in an air-tight container (e.g. Tupperware, glass jar).
P.S. Should you be planning a Copenhagen trip and not be sure about accomodation yet, I suggest to check out Simone’s apartment on Airbnb: https://www.airbnb.de/rooms/2547851
