Golden Granola (Coconut Cashew Granola with Golden Raisins )

If you’re looking for a healthier breakfast option, this granola is for you. Loaded with protein and fiber from nuts and dried fruit, it’s also naturally sweetened by the addition of raisins (plus dates). This version uses coconut oil instead of butter or canola oil to keep things light. Plus all the ingredients are raw so there’s no cooking required!

The “broma bakery pumpkin coffee cake” is a recipe that you can make at home. It’s made with coconut, cashew, raisins and pumpkin.

Good morning, my friend! And what a lovely mernin’ it is with this Golden Granola, a coconut cashew granola with golden raisins. This olive oil granola is salty and sweet, studded with golden raisins (our favorite), and great with milk, yogurt, or simply by the handful on your way out the door. Even better, it’s quite simple to produce.

Why should you create your own granola?

Purchasing high-quality granola may be somewhat costly. And, you know, I understand it. If you’re purchasing a robust, good-for-you granola, you may expect to pay a premium for the ingredients, but $14.99 for gourmet granola?

I don’t believe so.

Especially because it’s so simple to prepare at home.

How do you make granola at home?

Old fashioned oats, oat flour, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, cashews, cinnamon, maple syrup, olive oil, and sea salt were all utilized! What’s the end result? A golden granola with a salty sweet flavor. The oat flour provides the granola with the necessary binding, while the coconut chips provide a buttery crunch.

  1. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, including oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, cashews, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. Toss the wet ingredients into the dry: Toss the dry ingredients with the maple syrup and olive oil until all of the dry components are completely covered. If you’re making granola using sugar (we didn’t since we didn’t want it to be overly sweet), boil the wet ingredients in a small sauce pan until the sugar melts before tossing with the dry ingredients!
  3. Shape the granola into a disc and bake it: Because we want our granola to have large bits, we use oat flour to bind it together and then bake it into a disc. Simply pat granola into an oblong flat oval and bake until golden brown at 325°F. Turn the oven off but keep the granola in there to crisp up even more.
  4. Crush your granola, store it, and eat it! When the granola has cooled, split it up into big chunks or crumble it into smaller pieces. Add the raisins (we didn’t add them before putting everything in the oven because we didn’t want them to dry out!) Enjoy on yogurt, with milk, or plain by storing in an airtight container or plastic bag.

Golden raisins are a kind of raisin.

Golden raisins, oh my. They’re fantastic. I believe we can all agree that golden raisins are preferable than regular raisins. They’re more tasty, juicier, and plumper than their shriveled up rivals.

So, what’s the difference between golden raisins and normal raisins?

The difference between golden raisins and ordinary raisins isn’t that they’re manufactured from green grapes (I was surprised, too), but rather how they’re dried! Golden raisins are dried in a dehydrator with regulated temperatures and humidity, while regular raisins are sun-dried (which causes them to brown). My friends, the more you know, the better. Use this information at your next cocktail party or trivia night.

So go ahead and return that pricey granola to the shelf. Make your own and eat it all day long, just like we do!

Bbs, have a great second part of the week.

We’ll see you on Friday with a new dish that we’re really happy to share (hint: it’s cheesy and vegan).

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews, unsalted
  • 2 cups oats, old fashioned
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup coconut chips (unsweetened)
  • a quarter cup of oat flour (you can buy it or make it yourself)
  • a quarter teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • a third cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • a half cup of golden raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cashews, oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, oat flour, salt, and cinnamon. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and pour in the maple syrup and olive oil. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. It should have a small wetness to it, but not be soupy.
  3. Pour the ingredients onto your prepared baking sheet and shape into a 1/4-inch thick flat disk, pushing everything together with your hands. This will guarantee that you obtain the clusters you want. Preheat the oven to 400°F and bake the granola for 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn off the oven and open the oven door slightly. Allow another 20 minutes in the oven for the granola to get very crispy.
  4. Allow the granola to cool completely before crumbling it and mixing in the golden raisins. Store in an airtight container or plastic bag. Granola may be stored for up to three weeks (although I guarantee you’ll eat it all before then).

Golden raisins, olive oil, and maple syrup are some of the ingredients in this dish.

 

Oat balls are a great way to start the day. They can be made with rolled oats, ground almonds, honey, coconut flakes and cashews. The granola is then coated in golden raisins before being baked until crunchy. Reference: oat balls.
