Nutty New York Granola

Well so much for the slew of Thanksgiving recipes I was planning to post, is it me, or is time just zooming by these days? Anyway, as Thanksgiving is now just a happy memory, that means Christmas is just around the corner, and that means a visit from Lorna! Yes she’s here in New York with us and whilst we’re planning/ cooking some posts we’d like to do together I thought I’d quickly publish a simple granola recipe that we’ve been enjoying for breakfast.

Nutty Granola
makes approximately 18 1/2 cup servings

1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup flaked almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp ground flax seed (optional)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

Heat oven to 350F/180C, combine the nuts, sunflower seeds, oats and ground flax seed on a large sheet pan and bake/toast for about 20 minutes stirring a few times during baking. While that’s in the oven melt the butter with the rest of the ingredients together in a small pan. Remove the seeds, oats & flax from the oven and transfer into a large bowl, turn down the oven to 250F/120C, pour the melted ingredients over and give it a good stir to evenly coat everything. Spread it back out on the baking tray, return to the oven and bake for 1hr 30min stirring occasionally so it browns evenly. Once time’s up remove it from the oven and let it cool completely, then gently break it up and store it in an airtight jar; it keeps for ages this way – Melani
