Marmalade granola

Well, I have made my way through quite a few granola recipes in my time on this blog, but this has to be the most different. When my parents brought back lots of marmalade from their holiday in Italy, I got a little bored of marmalde on toast but I still wanted to taste marmalde in all it’s glory for breakfast. This recipe has the fruity chunks of orange peel as well as massive pieces to stop the arguement over who gets the single and only cluster like in a shop bought packet!

  • 2 chai tea bags
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp marmalade peel
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Zest of 1 large orange
  • 1/2 cup rapeseed oil
  • 3 cups jumbo oats
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 10 dates, chopped
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/4 cup desicated coconut
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds

  1. Boil a kettle of water and add 150ml to a jug with the tea bags and set aside, preheat the oven to 140 degrees.
  2. Mash the banana with the marmalade, spices, zest and then the oil then pour into the bowl with oats. Mix together with the tea and then squash down on to a lined tray. Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. After the time is done, break apart the ‘slab’ of granola in to large pieces. Place back in to the oven and continue to take it out and stir every 10 minutes till golden and crunchy on the biggest pieces (this took me four more rotations totalling an hour of cooking).
  4. Once cooked take out the oven and leave to cool, stir through the remaining ingredients before trasnferring to a large air proof container.
  5. Serve with yoghurt and fruit, with almond milk and banana or just on it’s own as a snack!
