Hippi Granola

Submitted by: HIPPICHICK1

Introduction

Yummy homemade granola is a breakfast favorite of mine. This recipe makes a huge batch. When cooled, store in jars and then you always have it on hand...that is, until you run out and have to make some more! Yummy homemade granola is a breakfast favorite of mine. This recipe makes a huge batch. When cooled, store in jars and then you always have it on hand...that is, until you run out and have to make some more!
Number of Servings: 31

Ingredients

    1100 grams (1kg or 2.2 lbs) of organic large oats flakes (NOT quick oats)
    150 grams ground flax seed
    100 grams almonds (sliced or ground)
    100 grams pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
    250 ml grapeseed oil
    125 ml honey
    100 grams raisins
    150 grams organic figs

Directions

*Makes 31 half cup (1/2 cup) servings*

About the ingredients
- I use organic when available.
- to grind whole nuts and seeds one can use a coffee bean grinder.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a very large mixing bowl, mix oats, ground almonds, slivered almonds, ground flax seed and pumpkin seeds. Mix well.

In a small glass or ceramic bowl, mix oil and honey and then warm briefly in microwave, about 30 seconds. (The idea is to heat the two ingredients so they mix well together.)
Stir the oil and honey and then pour this mixture over the granola. Blend well.
Spray a large pan lightly with oil or cooking spray.
Spread granola out and lightly toast in the oven at 250 degrees for about 50 minutes, stirring every 15 - 20 minutes. Mix in dried cherries after the granola is toasted. Store in glass jars with tight fitting lids when cool.

    Could we have the conversions to cups and tsps please? - 10/13/09

    Reply from HIPPICHICK1 (10/13/09)
    Cup measures aren't the same as weight measures. I'll convert it for you from metric to lbs and oz and if you have a kitchen scale, it'll be easy to make this.
    1000 grams = 1 kilogram which is 2.2 pounds
    100 g is equal to 3.5 oz
    150 g = 4.25 oz
    250 g = 8.25 oz
    250 ml = 1 cup
    125 ml = 1/2 cup

    Very very good. I had to sub dried cranberries for the cherries but otherwise i made it exactly as written and it was well worth it. - 1/14/10

    It's well worth it to keep a coffee grinder reserved for grinding nuts 'n' flax seeds! Good idea...and this recipe ROCKS! It's like a 21st-century update of the early, popular granolas of the early seventies. With the addition of flax seeds and cherries, it can't be beat! - 10/10/09

    Love it - not really sweet - works great with natural yogurt, or milk! There's so many things that you could add to this recipe to change it up, it's fantastic! - 11/12/08

    Looks fabulous, can't wait to make it. I like the idea of using maple syrup - we are Canadians, after all ;-). - 11/9/08

    I added shredded coconut, cinnamon and I used maple syrup instead of honey and it is sooo good. Thanks for the yummy recipe.. - 11/5/08

    Reply from HIPPICHICK1 (11/5/08)
    I've tried it with coconut too, but didn't like the extra fat calories! Maple syrup is a great idea if you can get it at a good price. I live in Qu├ębec, so the real maple syrup is only about $7 per tin, but in Manitoba (where I used to live) a tin of syrup is $15!! Glad you like it!!

  • I'm sure this will be great, but I don't have a kitchen scale so I will be doing a lot guessing. Can you substitute some of the oil for applesauce?
    - 10/4/11

    Reply from HIPPICHICK1 (10/4/11)
    I've not tried it. I'm not sure how it will store with a wet ingredient in it. This recipe makes a rather dry granola that clumpa together in nuggets. I suspect if you add applesauce it will be a kind of wet granola that might be susceptible to mold.
    Let me know how it works out if you try it.

  • Ok, I added sunflower seeds instead of slivered almonds, unsweetened shredded coconut,vanilla extract & substituted raisins for the cherries. Delicious, I'm eating some now and giving some as a gift tonight for my friend's 27 years of sobriety celebration! - 2/21/11

    Reply from HIPPICHICK1 (2/21/11)
    Nice gift! Glad you found it to be delicious. You can pretty much put anything you want in this recipe and it'll be good. Smells like a big oatmeal cookie, doesn't it? YUM!!

  • Is there anything you could suggest as a sub for ground flax seed? It isn't available in my area (.e. the middle of nowhere UK) unless I order it online and it is expensive. Thanks! - 5/7/10

    Reply from HIPPICHICK1 (5/7/10)
    You won't the same nutritional value with another seed, however why not try sunflower seeds (shelled, but not ground). Can you get those? I feel for you! Can I send you some?? LOL! Flax is a common crop in Canada. Sorry to hear that it's hard to get in the UK.
