Longest name ever.

The other day I went to Moemas the other day to get a take away breakfast. I got the muesli/yoghurt/fruit option. HOLY MOLY. Best breakfast ever. Since then I have been dying to replicate that muesli, it was seriously, like the best thing I have tasted.
So I have noticed over at How Sweet It Is Jessica has been making a few variations on home made granola. And voila! A solution. I would just have to try copy the ingredients and make my own. Unfortunately I only thought of that after I finished eating it, so I kind of just randomly picked some stuff that I thought might have been in there instead of actually going back, buying some more and dissecting it….. So this one isn’t at all what I wanted to end up with but it was also pretty damn delicious.

You will need…

3.5 cups oats (good old jungle oats)
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup peacan nuts (roughly chopped)
1 cup hazelnuts
0.5 cups dried cranberries
0.5 cups dried apricots
1 cup coconut
1 tsp salt
150gr butter
0.5 cup syrup (use real maple syrup if you have the money, but I used normal golden syrup)
2 tsp vanilla
200gr chocolate chips

*preheat the oven to 180*

Mix all your dry ingredients together in a large bowl (except the chocolate chips).
Heat the butter in a pan, once its melted add the syrup and vanilla.
Pour the heated mixture over the dry ingredients and mix in until everything is evenly coated.
Bake for 10 minutes, then toss/stir. Bake for another 10 minutes, toss/stir again. Bake for a last 10 minutes and take out of the oven. I think I did mine one too many times… My muesli was a little bit burnt (hence the lower rating)… pffft. Just keep an eye on it when you are checking it in between – it should be golden brown, not too toasted, and you should smell if it starts to burn.
