The recipe that follows is the way I?ve come to use Nigella?s recipe. Of course, tweak as you will. For example, feel free to use whatever type of nut you like best - just one, or a variety. You could add some flax seeds, if you like, or some shredded coconut. If you like your granola with dried fruit, go ahead and add some - but after baking, not before. And about the applesauce: I like to buy it in those single-serving cups, the kind made to go in kids? lunchboxes. I used to buy it in bigger glass jars, but I found that it started to go moldy before I could use it all. The smaller containers are very handy that way; there?s less waste. Finally, I highly recommend eating this granola with plain soy milk. I like it with plain yogurt or regular milk too, but soy milk is especially good.

Recipe Ingredients for Nigella's granola, via Orangette

5 cups rolled oats
2 cups raw almonds or pecan halves, or a mixture
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Recipe Directions for Nigella's granola, via Orangette

  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Stir to mix well. In a small bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients. Stir to mix well. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ones, and stir well.

  2. Spread the mixture evenly on two rimmed baking sheets. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until evenly golden brown. Set a timer to go off every ten minutes while the granola bakes, so you can rotate the pans and give the granola a good stir; this helps it to cook evenly. When it?s ready, remove the pans from the oven, stir well ? this will keep it from cooling into a hard, solid sheet ? and set aside to cool. The finished granola may still feel slightly soft when it comes out of the oven, but it will crisp as it cools.

  3. Scoop cooled granola into to a large zipper-lock plastic bag or other airtight container. Store in the refrigerator indefinitely.

  4. Yield: about 10 cups
