My Granola

Music: Blonde In The Bleachers, Joni Mitchell. This is my comfort snack as the blonde in the bleachers even if I’m home and don’t tape my regrets to the microphone stand. There’s no song in the world that fits me better. Love Joni.


350 gr rolled oats

50 gr sunflower seeds

20 gr sesame seeds

80 gr slivered almonds

6 dried apricots, diced

30 gr raising

100 gr dark chocolate, cut into small pieces

1 Tsb butter

80 gr water

100 gr honey

2 Tsb brown sugar

1 pinch salt

Mix butter, water, honey, sugar and salt, then place on medium heat and cook until the sugar dissolves. In another bowl, mix oats, sunflower seeds, almonds and sesame seeds and add it to the liquid mixture, mixing well. Place the granola on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake at 160° C for about 50 minutes. Let cool completely, then add chocolate, dried apricots and raising.

    Mi sono già ripromessa di provare a casa, l’adoro ed è la mia colazione preferita sia con latte sia con yogurt! Slurp!
