Ingredients

  • 125 g/ 1 1/2 cups/ 4 1/2 oz Jumbo Oats
  • 50 g/ 1/2 cup/ 2 oz Spelt flakes
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp Chai spice/ pumpkin spice or 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Apples (red, tart) I used Pink Lady
  • 1 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp Dessicated coconut
  • 2 tbsp Flaked almonds (slivered)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160C/ 310F and line a sided baking tray with baking parchment 
  • Weight the oats & spelt flakes into a medium mixing bowl. Add the spice and chia seeds, then stir briefly
  • Grate the apples coarsely (leave the skin on), stopping when you reach the core. Add to the dry ingredients and mix in
  • Melt the coconut oil and syrup in a small pan. Stir in the almond and vanilla extracts and pour into the dry ingredients.  Mix well and spread the granola out onto the baking sheet
  • Bake for 15 minutes then stir and turn. Return to the oven and cook for a further 15 minutes
  • Turn the heat down to 150C/ 300F. Stir and turn the granola again and cook for another 15 minutes
  • If the granola is crisp and dry, remove from the oven. If it is still a little soggy continue to cook the granola taking care to stir and turn the granola every 5 minutes until it has dried out (it can burn easily at this point so needs to be checked more frequently)
  • Once cooked, sprinkle the flaked almonds and coconut over and let cool completely before decanting into an airtight jar
  • Keeps for up to 6 weeks
