Chocolate and Nut Granola

Saturday morning is a good lineup. Jamie and Nigella on tv. I usually watch, am inspired, and erase. Need to remove for more room. Well, one week Nigella went off on breakfast and I watched her make granola I knew I had to try. Cocoa and all the other ingredients that make up granola, count me in. Ginger for some heat and of course, cinnamon. I made, and I loved. A bit more chocolaty at first, but I've now come to justify the little bit of chocolate compared to all those good ingredients and am fine eating it any old time. I love the hint of salt at the end- sweet and salty are more than delicious to me.

Nigella's Chocolate and Nut Granola:
  • 4 1/2 c. oats
  • 1 c. sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 c. sesame seeds
  • 3/4 c. apple sauce
  • 1/4 c. cocoa
  • ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/3 c. dark or light corn syrup
  • 2 c. nuts
  • 2 T oil
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 t. sea salt
Stir and place on jelly roll pan at 300 for 40 min, stirring half way through if you like. Enjoy!

  1. Do you remember putting cocoa into our oatmeal during the hiking trip at SB2W? YUM--i would love to make this and then go for a hike...just for old times sake.
