Hello Mornings

Luckily for us, bread (at least the one that we buy in a plastic bag, the one with a 2 lines label, like: whole grain spelt: organic whole spelt flour, water, sea salt, organic flax, organic sesame seeds and not the one that have honey sugar, molasse, vinegar, etc... with a 10 lines label) is an easy way to enjoy breakfast, toasted with melted organic butter from grass-feed (100% grass-feed) cows and buttery raw unrefined honey from vermont. But sometimes, even this breakfast needs to be put on the side for something more comforting. Few rainy days and I am craving my home-made GRANOLA. Easy and creatif. Today the mood is asking for a white chocolate granola with sesame and sunflower seeds. Ok I had to go online making sure what it means to buy today a WHITE chocolate. In a large bowl I pour 1 pound of organic rolled oats, 1/2 cup of sunflower seed and 1/3 cup of sesame seeds, a pinch (a pinch is what holds in 3 fingers)of sea salt (always use sea salt, regular salt contains dextrose which is sugar..), after the dry ingredients I add the wet ingredients: 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. I preheat my oven around 300 degres, spread the mixture into a sheetpan (with unbleached parchment under). Bake for 15 minutes then sprinkle mini pieces of white chocolate and bake for 10 more minutes. It is up to you: you try if you like it dark, soft, crunchy, caramelised. It is a great way to start the day with a rooibos tea:-) Bon petit dejeuner!
