Oh, Granola mio!
If there’s one thing that’s completely underestimated, it’s homemade muesli.
It’s made quickly, contains only the ingredients YOU want to have inside and knows no bounds when it comes to versatility.
This caramelized pear granola is full of tasty, healthy ingredients, contains no refined sugar, no bad fats, is gluten-free if you like, and keeps you full the whole morning long in the best way possible.
Since we are at the beginning of a new year and we are all still very motivated to pursue our New Year resolutions, classic biscuit and cake recipes are currently not the most suitable.
That is not to say that I do not eat such things. I beg you.
Only in the near future the healthier variants and recipes will have the right of way 🙂
In order to keep my sweet tooth in a good mood, I baked this caramelized pear granola. A complete success.
It consists of all good ingredients, like seeds, grain, pears and coconut oil, which give you energy for a long time and let you start the day fit and fresh.
In addition, there is the taste of caramel, which harmonises so well with the pears.
C A R A M E L I Z E D pear granola mixed with milk, yoghurt or just pure to nibble on. Mmm. But be careful, it’s highly addictive.
Many people underestimate the high sugar content of store bought granola. What your body doesn’t want is a high dose of sugar. Especially not refined sugar. And certainly not in the morning, when you want to start the day fresh and lively.
Homemade muesli on the contrary has the huge advantage that YOU decide the type and amount of sugar, as well as the other ingredients.
PLUS you have free choice with the flavor. Caramelized pear granola, for example, is very popular in my home right now.
Since real fruits are contained in this granola, it is moist and chewy after the usual 30 minutes of baking. My trick here is to let the baked muesli cool down a bit, then break it into pieces and bake again for a few minutes.
The second baking round makes the granola really nice crunchy. Bite for bite.
