In The Zone with Matcha Granola

Wednesday, 8 September 2010

Sorry for my lack of posts last week and maybe the coming month. We have been extremely busy over the weekend - packing, moving, unpacking - always a nightmare. We have officially moved further away from London, much further up north this time to Manchester because the Wild Boar got a job there. As for me, I've moved back into college and will be looking out of this window 24/7.


That's the view (King's College Chapel, Cambridge) from my current work desk in one of the rooms in the attic. Totaly isolated.


I'm supposed to be "in the zone" as I have a deadline to meet end of this month. After that, I will be free!!! So, I won't be seeing the wild boar this month and won't be cooking anything. All I have now is a bowl, a spoon and a box of yummy homemade matcha granola.

Matcha granola
From Katie of Matcha Chocolat
  • 300g old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 75g sliced or slivered almonds (I used 100g)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs veg oil or 2 tbs (28g) unsalted butter - melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or just sweeten with sugar) (I used 6 tbs agave nectar)
  • 1-3 tsp Matcha green tea (I used 3 tsp)
  • A few drops of almond extract (optional) (I used 1 tsp vanilla extract)

  • Heat oven to about 150°C.
  • Stir all ingredients together.
  • Place the mixture evenly across a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally so the mixture browns evenly.
  • Lay out to cool and dry completely.

I will try to post something every now and then but they will all be backlogs which need to be dealt with. Now is the best time! I will (hopefully) be back next month, till then!
