Safari Dried Fruits and Nuts are nature's gifts to us and every time we add a handful of dried fruits or nuts to our baking and cooking, we add nature’s colour, flavour and healthy goodness. As they say: more fruit … more nuts … more taste!

Crunchy Granola

Ingredients


  • 3 x 250 ml large-flake oats
  • 100 g Safari Flaked Almonds
  • 100 g Safari Pecan Nuts, roughly chopped
  • 180 ml seeds of your choice (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame or flax)
  • 180 ml desiccated coconut
  • 90 ml Muscovado brown sugar
  • 5 ml table salt
  • 90 ml honey
  • 90 ml sunflower or canola oil
  • 250 ml Safari Dried Fruits of your choice (apple rings, peaches, apricots, prunes or dates or a combination of all or some), roughly chopped
  • 250 ml Safari Seedless Raisins or Golden Sultanas



Method


Place the oats in a large mixing bowl and stir in the nuts, seeds, coconut, sugar and salt. Add the honey and oil and mix lightly (the clumping will be the crunchy large pieces of granola) then transfer to one or two deep baking trays.

Bake for 30 45 minutes in the oven preheated to 180 C stirring and tossing the mixture every 8 10 minutes to ensure that it does not burn or brown too much. The coconut, especially can burn rather quickly.

When the mixture is toasted enough to your liking, remove from the oven and allow to cool. Then place it in a large mixing bowl, stir in the dried fruits and raisins and transfer to an airtight container or containers.

Enjoy with stewed dried or fresh fruit, honey and milk or yoghurt.
