Orange, Apricot and Pecan Granola
To save a little time - and baggies! - you can combine the powdered milk with the granola. On the trail, simply decant your granola into a bowl, add water, stir and enjoy!
For the granola
(or other mix of nuts)
sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, or a mix
zest of two oranges
big pinch of sea salt
dried coconut flaks
Berries, banana, or other fresh fruit
Heat the oven to 150C.
In a large roasting tin, mix the oats, nuts, seeds, orange zest and salt. Drizzle over the honey and mix well.
Spread out on evenly and bake for about 30-40 minutes until golden, stirring every 10 minutes. Add the coconut flakes during the last few minutes of cooking.
Remove from the oven, stir in the fruit, and leave to cool.
Divide the granola into 8 portions and store in resealable food bags. (Or store it all in a sealed container and decant into food bags as needed for your trips.)
On the trail
In a bowl, mix a couple spoonfuls (or sporkfuls!) of powdered milk with a bit of water.
Add the granola, fresh fruit, and enjoy!
