Healthy Food: Granola With Nuts And Whole Milk:

It is easy to make and store granola. You can use it as per your convenience. While the major ingredient is oats, you can even add wheat flakes and corn flakes plus roasted sago for better calorie intake. Make sure you include the nuts and enjoy it along with fruits for a nutrient and calorie dense breakfast. You need not shell out loads of money for that tasty breakfast, which is quite simple to put together.

Ingredients:

  1. Quaker oats – 2 cups
  2. Wheat flakes – 1 cup
  3. Corn flakes – 1 cup
  4. Roasted lentils – ½ cup
  5. Almonds – ½ cup
  6. Walnuts – ¼ cup
  7. Raisins – ¼ cup
  8. Dates – 12, pitted, sliced lengthways
  9. Brown sugar – 1 tbsp [You can use caster sugar or granulated sugar.]
  10. Honey – ¼ cup
  11. Clarified butter – 2 tbsp, melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small pan, mix brown sugar with honey and melted butter. On medium heat, keep mixing this mixture to allow brown sugar to melt completely. I do not like the sugar melting completely. So, I retain quite a portion to add a crunchy feel.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, toss the oats with the ingredients, which are listed in the points, starting from 2 to 8.
  4. Pour in the warm honey-sugar mixture.
  5. Stir well to ensure even coating.
  6. Grease a rectangular baking pan mildly with cooking oil.
  7. Transfer the granola contents to the pan.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, taking out in between and giving a quick stir. Or, just bake until the oats turn golden brown and nuts change their color.
  9. Take out and allow it to cool.
  10. Store it in an airtight container.

How To Use:

  1. Add about ½ a cup of granola to a serving bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup warm milk.
  3. Slice fruits of your choice and add to this granola.
  4. Enjoy warm.
