  • 50ml maple syrup
  • 5tbsp coconut oil
  • 2tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2tbsp flaxseeds
  • 2tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4tsp salt
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.
