This is the first thing I made with some sourdough discard and it might be some of the best granola to date! The texture is very crispy without using much oil – and its not very sweet at all. I have been having a handful with some chocolate chips and its a great snack!
1/3 cup discard starter
2 T water
2 T brown or coconut sugar
Let this ferment for 3 hours to overnight.
When ready, you will need:
1/4 tspn salt
1/2 tspn cinnamon (optional)
2 cups oats
2T mild oil
nuts (almonds, cashews, etc)
seeds (sunflower seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, etc)
1T honey or maple syrup
Add the salt and oats, cinnamon, nuts and seeds to a bowl.
Add the honey and oil to the fermented mixture, then pour over the oats in the bowl. Coat well, and then bake in preheated 300 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes. Stir halfway through.
