The Sesame Snap Granola was born at my parents’ summer house last christmas. Holidays there are always a great time to get back to basics, not relying on my ‘speciality ingredients’, as there is only ONE small supermarket there! For this granola I used whatever I could get hold of – sesame, linseed, coconut flakes, olive oil…
700ml (325g) rolled oats
300ml (190g) sesame seed, hulled or whole. Whole gives a stronger sesame flavour.
100ml (70g) flax seed
200ml (75g) desiccated coconut
200ml (120g) nuts of your choice, whole or roughly chopped
50ml (55g) coconut palm sugar*
50ml (40g) extra virgin olive oil
50ml (60g) rice malt syrup**
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
*coconut palm sugar can be replaced with rapadura sugar, or another whole sugar. If you use brown sugar, use half the amount.
**rice malt syrup can be replaced with maple or coconut palm syrup. If you use agave or golden syrup, use half the amount.
