You won’t believe how easy it is to make this matcha granola!
We teamed up with our incredible friends at Amazebowls to bring you this recipe for a fun and creative way to use our matcha.
Prep time: 5 min | Bake time: ~24 min
Here's what you'll need:
½ cup organic maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil
2 tbsp Junbi matcha
3 cups oats
½ cup demerara sugar
1 cup mixed nuts
½ cup dried mango (diced)
½ cup dried figs (diced)
¼ cup goji berries
¼ cup sesame seeds
Here's how it's done:
STEP 1: PRE-HEAT
Preheat your oven to 325°F and turn the fan on.
STEP 2: HEAT LIQUID
Heat the coconut oil & maple syrup in a small saucepan (or microwave, whatever’s easiest for you!) on medium-low heat until well combined. You don’t want it to get too hot; just as long as it's warm enough to dissolve the coconut oil (about one minute).
STEP 3: WHISK IN MATCHA
Take your liquid mixture off the heat, add matcha, and whisk until everything is smooth.
STEP 4: MIX DRY INGREDIENTS
In a separate bowl, combine the oats, demerara sugar, and mixed nuts.
STEP 5: ADD IN LIQUID
Add your liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, mix, and coat everything thoroughly.
STEP 6: SPREAD ONTO BAKING SHEET
Spread your granola in an even layer on a lined baking sheet. The thinner the layer, the crunchier your granola will be! We’d recommend spreading it to about ½ inches.
STEP 7: BAKE, STIR & BAKE AGAIN
Bake for 12 minutes, then stir & pack the granola back down into an even layer. Return to the oven and bake for about 12 minutes (more or less, it depends on your oven and preference!)
STEP 8: TOSS IN THE FRUIT
Remove from the oven and let cool. When cool, toss in fruits and sesame seeds to combine.
STEP 9: SHARE & ENJOY!
