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.

Anyways.

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.

Instructions
  1. Wash the pears, dab dry, cut in half, remove seeds and cut into cubes about 1 cm in size.
  2. In a pan, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil at medium heat. Add the sugar and simmer for a few minutes until it dissolves and begins to caramelize. Add the pears. Grill for 5 minutes until soft, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the stove.
  3. Finely mix the pears, remaining coconut oil and maple syrup with a blender or hand mixer.
  4. Preheat the oven to 170°C / 340°F top/bottom heat. Prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
  5. Mix oats, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add the caramelized pear puree to the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula until everything well combined. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking paper and press down a little.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven for approx. 30 minutes until the edges are slightly golden. Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Break into coarser pieces and bake again at 160°C / 320°F for 10-15 minutes. This makes it crispy.
  7. Allow the baked granola to cool completely on the baking tray. It becomes crispy once its cold.
  8. Store the caramelized pear granola in an airtight container in a cool, dark place and use within 2 weeks.
