I love oatmeal and for the past 10 years it only for breakfast and cook. I did not bother to eat for breakfast is the same for many years. Once married, the first time my wife and I cooked oatmeal for breakfast, but she quickly tired of it.
She always wanted for breakfast something new, and then I found a way out. I began to prepare her granola. Granola or muesli, it is tasty, but a useful alternative to the usual oatmeal us.
The beauty of granola that it is very easy to prepare from completely different ingredients, the main thing to know principle. And it can be fed with milk, yogurt, yogurt, juice - the mass of options. At the expense of such combinations may be every day to arrange a new breakfast.
So my wife fell in love with granola, now that I cook every Sunday she granola in a new variation. Today will tell the example of chocolate granola with nuts and seeds.

Another hot syrup transfused to the dry mixture and mixed until uniform both mixtures.
Spread on baking, the laid paper baking. To one portion of 2 standard require baking. Shovel align future granola.
Sending baked in a preheated 150 ° C oven for 1 hr. An hour later, I take out the granola from the oven and stirred. Mass dries out a bit and a little slipnetsya.
Re tidy bake, but at a temperature of 130 ° C for 1 hr. After baking granola give to cool completely and check on availability.
Ready-made granola should be dry and crispy. When she was a little damp and caked, if a long time to leave, the granola undercured. It is still dry it at a temperature of 130 ° C.
