I’m baking up a batch of granola as made on my fictional planet Fenria. Fenria’s climate is cool and wet like Alaska so Fenrians aren’t cultivating much sugar cane, corn, or wheat. They eat more oats and rye and sweetened with barley malt or barley sugar. So here is a recipe for granola made up entirely of foods which could be grown in Alaska.
- 8 cups rolled oats.
- 1 cup raw hulled sunflower seeds.
- 1 cup sunflower oil.
- 1 cup barley malt syrup.
- 2 cups dried cranberries.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine oats and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Measure oil and poor into a sauce pan. Use the same measuring cup to measure the malt syrup. The oil keeps the malt syrup from sticking. Heat oil and malt while stirring to soften the malt. . Poor oil and malt over grain mixture and stir to coat oats with oil and malt.Dump grain mixture into an oiled baking dish. Bake granola until toasty stirring every 15 minutes. Cool. Add dried fruit.
I didn’t exactly follow the recipe this time because I’m at my parents place. I used almonds instead of sunflower seeds, canola oil instead of sunflower oil, and raisins instead of cranberries.
