This week, I open a new category I call “Today, I'm cooking with...” to let you discover recipes from other bloggers. To begin with, I have chosen Marie’s blog: Sweet & Sour, as in a previous post. At that time, I had promised to test and taste Marie’s famous granola recipe. I did. Now I’m glad to tell you I’m not disappointed: crispy, crunchy and not too sweet, it has pleased my whole family. I have tried it in two versions: one with dark chocolate just as Marie does, the other one without any chocolate. Both taste good, but chocolate in Marie’s basic granola adds some more delight, which I find pleasant. Although Marie has her granola with banana for breakfast, I tried to make a change and served it to my husband and daughter at lunchtime with a home-made apple sauce with honey. Both my husband and daughter have appreciated this granola with and without chocolate. Its crunchy taste combines well with the melting apple sauce.
If you have a sweet tooth and are interested in it, (re)discover my translation of Marie's granola and hereunder my so easy-to-make apple sauce recipe:
- 10 middle-sized apples
- 2 tbsp dandelion honey
Wash and peel the apples. Cut them into cubes and let them simmer with very little water over low heat. Add the honey during simmering. When the apples have melted or are tender, depending on the apple type you chose, remove from heat and let cool down. Then pour the apple sauce into ramekins and sprinkle with granola. That’s all. Serve cold, as I did, or lukewarm. I can image chocolate melting...
