Gingerbread Granola / Medenjačka granola

I know I’ve made a granola post like five seconds ago, but this granola totally smells like Christmas. Yes, yes, Christmas definitely has a smell. Maybe you think it’s way it too early to start throwing in Christmas-y recipes in the rotation. Think twice, because December is right at the door. Plus, I think this granola recipe would make an awesome homemade gift, especially if you’re crafty and put it all in a neat jar with a cute bowtie and a note. Just saying! IMGP4081

Wash and grate apples with skins intact and mix together with oats, raisins, walnuts and flax seed. Pour butter and spice mixture over everything and stir until well combined. Spread granola on a prepared baking tray, leaving it in clumps, without pressing into the tray. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

Allow granola to cool completely on a baking tray, before storing in airtight container. It keeps for well over a month, if refrigerated.

Znam da sam objavila post o granoli pred valjda pet sekundi, ali ova granola skroz miriši kao Božić. Da, da, Božić definitivno ima miris. Možda mislite da je prerano već krenuti sa božićnim receptima. Razmislite dva puta, jer prosinac nam je već tu. Osim toga, mislim da bi ova granola bila super poklon iz kućne radinosti, posebno ako ju stavite u neku zgodnu teglicu i ukrasite fora mašnicom.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 izdašnih porcija / 2,35 kn po porciji / 18,77 kn za sve)

3 žlice maslaca (3,00 kn)

3 žlice meda(3,00 kn)

1 žlica kakao praha (0,50 kn)

1 žličica mljevenog cimeta (0,07 kn)

½ žličice mljevenog muškatnog oraščića (0,25 kn)

½ žličice mljevenih klinčića (0,25 kn)

½ žličice mljevenog đumbira (0,25 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 velike jabuke (3,00 kn)

3 šalice zobenih pahuljica (3,00 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (1,50 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih oraha (3,00 kn)

3 žlice sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Obložite lim za pečenje masnim papirom i stavite na stranu. U malom lončiću rastopite maslac i med, maknite s vatre pa umiješajte kakao, cimet, muškatni oraščić, klinčiće, đumbir i vaniliju.

Operite i naribajte jabuke skupa sa korom, pa pomiješajte sa zobenim pahuljicama, grožđicama, mljevenim orasima i lanom. Prelijte mješavinu maslaca i začina preko mješavine za zobenima i sve dobro izmijšejte. Raširite granolu u grudama po pripremljenom limu za pečenje bez da ju utiskujete. Pecite 30 minuta, miješajući jednom na pola pečenja.

Pustite granolu da se skroz ohladi na limu prije nego što ju spremite u hermetički zatvorenu posudu. U hladnjaku može držati preko mjesec dana.
