As you have undoubtedly noticed, Earl Gray is a great tea to use in the kitchen. This time I would like to share the recipe for Granola with you. Or well, recipe… it’s so simple that I don’t know if you can call it a recipe. It’s tasty. Enjoy it with yogurt for breakfast or perhaps for lunch. We love to have an extensive breakfast on Sundays, or usually it’s brunch. Getting up on time is not always a great success with 2 teenagers in the house, or you should not mind that they are not sitting too comfortably at the table.
What do you need:
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds etc.
- 3 scoops of loose Earl Gray tea
- Half cup of boiling water
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon cane sugar
- To taste if necessary. vanilla/cinnamon
Place the 3 scoops of loose Earl Gray in half a cup of boiling water. Let the tea steep well.
Let’s preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
Place the tea (including the tea leaves) in a pan/bowl and mix with the honey and cane sugar. Then add the dry ingredients, mix well and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake it for about 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown, it will smell wonderful in the house so make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy. When the granola has cooled, you can add cranberries or dried apricots (in pieces), for example. This is entirely according to your own taste.
Here too we of course used the Earl Gray from the brewery. For a fruity touch you can also add our red fruit mix to your granola. This mix consists of: Hibiscus, elderberries, grapes, blueberries, blackcurrants and aroma. If you want to add this, wait until the granola has cooled down. The amount depends on the amount of granola.
Enjoy and be surprised by the versatility of tea!
