I found this recipe in one of my grandmothers magazine (passed down via my mother and on to me) and it looked so easy and delicious that I had to try it. I’ve already made a second batch too, it’s really delicious and really good for you too. So an excellent start of the day! Here’s how to make it:
Preheat the oven to 180 C and cover a baking sheet with baking parchment. In a bowl, mix 180 g oatmeal with 45 g dried apple cut in small pieces (I use scissors, much easier), 70 g skinned almonds (left whole – if you only have some with skin on, that’s fine too), 100 ml apple sauce, 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tsp cinnamon. Spread it out on your baking sheet and put it in the oven for 30 min, stirring every 10 min. Cover loosely with a sheet of aluminium foil for the last 10 min or so as the apples burn easily (so keep a close eye on it).
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Transfer to an airtight tin and add 50 g goji berries and 40 g wheat (or oat) flakes. You can keep it in the tin for 2 weeks. Eat with some yoghurt or milk. You can add pieces of fresh fruit as well. Enjoy!
