Fruity-nutty granola-Homemade christmas present-


Now that we have moved south east London, we have the immense privilege to have a big kitchen! And who says "big kitchen" says "more recipe testings and fun, inventing (or not) new (or old) healthy- delicious- beautiful- simple dishes". 
I don't think I realised how having a big kitchen would inspire me again so much, and I feel excited to play and share. 
Because I feel like healthy tasty food that makes you feel good and looks beautiful should be everywhere...
So on this sunday just before christmas I thought I would make something that I can give as an edible present. This granola came as an idea when I stumbled upon this a-ma-zing blog Green kitchen stories, which I love and if you like my blog, you are gonna LOVE this blog even more! 
Anyway, I thought this would be a great alternative to my usual raw chocolates. 
It's pretty easy to make and will be a delicious breakfast with some yogurt or nut milk.


The base:
4 Cups of rolled oats
5 Tbsp Coconut butter, melted
5 Tbsp agave syrup (or honey)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
a Pinch of sea salt

The nutty stuff:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, roughly cut

The fruity stuff:
1/2 cup currants
1/2 cup dried  figs, chopped in small chunks
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Preheat your oven to 180c. Line a baking sheet with some baking parchment.
In a bowl, mix the oats with the melted coconut butter, agave, cinnamon, ginger and salt. "Massage" the oats well to coat them. Spread the oats on the baking sheet and put in the oven for about 10min. 
Stir from time to time to avoid burning the oats. After 10 min, add the nuts and seeds and bake for another 10min. 
Once out of the oven, add the dried fruit, mix well and let it cool down before storing it in glass jars or wrapping it in little bags. 


Depuis que nous avons déménagé au sud est Londonien, nous avons l'immense privilège d'avoir une grande cuisine! Et qui dit grande cuisine dit essais de recettes, nouvelles ou anciennes, et créations de petits plats sains-delicieux-beaux et simples.
Je n'avais pas réalise a quel point avoir une grande cuisine me redonnerai tant d'inspiration et l'envie de créer et partager.
