Orange Blossom Granola
Makes about 1/2 gallon (8 cups)
What You Need:
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup buckwheat groats, untoasted
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup nuts, coarsely chopped filberts)
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (large flakes)
- 1/4 cup flax meal (optional)
- 1/4 cup unbleached granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup orange blossom water
- 2 teaspoons blackstrap molasses
- 1/4 cup canola/melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- pinch o' salt
- 1 cup dried fruit apple sliced thinly on a mandoline and dehydrated for an hour or two)
What You Do:
- Preheat oven to 315F.
- In a large bowl, mix together the oats, buckwheat, cinnamon, nuts, coconut and optional flax meal.
- In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, vanilla, orange blossom water, molasses, oil, maple syrup and the tiniest pinch of salt.
- Pour the liquid mixture over the cereal mixture and stir very well to combine. It might take a few minutes to get everything coated, but there should be enough liquid to cover everything. If yours seems too dry, add a little more maple syrup.
- Line a lipped baking sheet with parchment and spread the granola over the tray as evenly as possible.
- Bake until the coconut and nuts are golden brown, stirring every 5-10 minutes (about 35-45 minutes total). The granola browns fastest along the edges of the pan, so keep a close eye on those areas as you stir.
- Allow to cool, mix in the dehydrated fruit and eat. Store in a tightly covered container.
