Home-made granola recipe

Home-made granola. Kodune krõbe müsli.

This was originally posed in January 2009. I'm reposting this with new photos. 

I'm not sure why it took me so long to make my own granola to sprinkle on yogurt for breakfast, considering how incredibly easy it is! The recipe below is a mixture of various ideas, and it's pretty simple. I'm especially fond of the addition of malt extract* that I got from Moosewood granola recipe included in the Moosewood Restaurant New Classics - it adds a lovely, well, malted flavour to the end product. I've used a mixture of chopped apricots, seedless raisins and dried cranberries to 'buff up' my granola, but the choice of dried fruit is obviously yours.

What do you do? Make your own granola/müsli or buy from a shop? If you buy, then what's your favourite brand/type? Just curious :)

Home-Made Granola
(Kodune krõbe müsli)
Makes enough for 2 persons for a week



100 g old-fashioned rolled oats (about 1 cup)
3 Tbsp dark muscovado sugar
5 Tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
1 Tbsp flax seeds/linseeds
1 tsp cinnamon

3 Tbsp neutral-flavoured oil
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp malt extract

To 'top up':
half a cup or so chopped dried apricots or prunes or dried cranberries or seedless raisins

Mix the oats, sugar, coconut flakes, linseed and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in molasses extract, oil and water, stir to combine.

Line a small baking tray with a parchment paper and spread the granola mixture on top.

Bake in a pre-heated 200 C/400 F oven for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice while baking, until the granola is golden and very aromatic (it will crispen up after you take it out of the oven).

Take out of the oven and cool completely, then stir in the chopped dried fruit.

Keep in a closed jar and serve with your breakfast yogurt or milk.

* Moosewood recipe uses "barley malt syrup or unsulphured molasses", explaining that "Barley malt is a liquid made from fermented barley and often used in baking bread. We use it here for sweetness and moisture. If unavailable, any unsulphured molasses except blackstrap will work fine". I used a local product which is meant for brewing your own beer at home, but is also widely used for baking bread at home.

I like to make my own, and I don't eat it to be healthy. Mine had brown sugar, maple,raisins, cocunut, nuts and warm spices. typically you don't get the large juicy chunks that is in store bought.

From store ones I like Dorset most.
But homemade depends usually what we have. Different dried fruits, nuts etc.

I also make my own (have posted about it too before)...it's so easy and I get to put in all the fruits and nuts I like and leave out the ones I don't ;)

It's so easy, isn't it? I've been experimenting too, looking for something that makes all the difference. Perhaps your malt idea???

omatehtud müsli on nii hea. Ma polegi selle peale tulnud, et kasutada linnaseekstrakti müslis. Järgmisel korral kui müslit teen, proovin järele;)

Looking so good.... I should try to make my own from now:)

ma tegin ka hiljuti ise ja oli ikka mõnus küll. Nüüd just plaanin uuesti teha, tahaks seekord kakaoga teha ja mõned mõtted on veel tekkinud. Aga sinu oma näeb nii ilus välja ja linnaseekstrakt tundub täielik 'stroke of genius'.

We've been making Adele Davis granola -- 5 parts oats to 7 parts goodies and then 1 part each of oil and honey. I'll have to try this one next, though.

Like you, I haven't made my own but I am definitely going to do so shortly. It sounds childishly simple! Just waiting for our house purchase to be finalised so that I can get access to a proper, big oven that will take my big Silpat!!

Sounds yummy. I just posted my own granola recipe on my new blog, The Tangled Nest. Fruit juice adds part of the sweetness and moisture, so it's has less fat than some granolas. My daughter loves it!
