Hello, yummy bowl of goodness.
I got the idea of making marmalade granola while I was on Dorset Cereals’ website. I saw the words marmalade and granola together and knew I had a new recipe coming. I didn’t know how it would turn out but it sounded so delicious I had to try!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup brown rice crisp cereal
- 1/4 cup wheat germ
- 1 tbsp flax seeds, grounded
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts
- 1/2 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup marmalade (I used Double Fruit, do not use a “jellied” spread)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
Directions: Preheat oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a big bowl, mix oats, rice cereal, wheat germ, grounded flax seeds, hazelnuts, chopped almonds and chopped pecans. In a small bowl, whisk marmalade and melted coconut oil. Pour on dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until well coated. Spread on baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring after 10. Let cool on baking sheet (it will harden while it cools).
Transfer to a bowl and toss in sliced almonds. Store in an air-tight container.
Makes approximately 6 cups of granola.
This granola is so good! It tastes exactly like marmalade, which was to expect since it’s all I added. I just didn’t know how marmalade reacts to baking! If you like big clumps of granola, this recipe if for you! It even sticks to the parchment paper. You still can remove it easily but you will have big crunchy clusters of oats! Might depend on the marmalade you use, though.
The granola does not harden at all in the oven but it does while it cools.
It is a very flavorful granola. A big bowl with milk might be too much ;-). But it is very good to snack on or with yogurt.
Or my favorite: a big handful of granola with a bowl of flaky cereal and chia seeds!
I love it with Nature’s Path Heritage cereals. It has a nice earthy taste and stays crunchy in milk. And has only 4 g of sugar/serving! Since the cereal has a simple not-too-sweet taste, the flavorful granola is perfect to go with it!
What is your favorite way to eat granola?
I actually have a different favorite way to eat each granola I make ;-). I like my Maple Pecan Quinoa Crunch Granola alone with milk and my Apple Cinnamon Granola with yogurt!
