sweet pot granola

You read that right, this is my Secret Ingredient Granola based on sweet potato which has been peeled, steamed or boiled and cooled – I just cook extra and keep some leftovers!

Stores for a week or 2 in a zip lock bag or kilner jar.

Serve with yoghurt and fruit compote for a delicious blood sugar balancing, fulling sustaining breakfast.

Sweet Potato Granola

9oz sweet potato, boiled blended smooth and cooled

10oz oats

2oz pecans chopped

1oz unsweetened desiccated coconut

1tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp mixed spice

½ tsp turmeric

1 tbsp each of chia, flax and poppy seeds

3oz sultanas or other dried fruit of choice

Add the oats, coconut and spices to a bowl, and pour in the sweet potato puree and the oil. Mix well to incorporate until the mixture resembles a dryish cookie dough

Spread out onto a baking sheet which is lined with parchment paper or lightly oiled.

Bake at 170c for 10 minutes then stir the granola to turn over and bake for a further 10-15 minutes until crispy and golden brown.

Let cool then stir in the rest of the ingredients.

Store as directed.
