Spiced Granola with Cricket Protein
For this new recipe from Cricket Flours, we wanted to make something that would be a great compliment to any breakfast or snack for the entire family. This spiced granola recipe is great for breakfast or with yogurt, and keeps well for snacks, hikes, etc. As you see from the ingredients below, we used currants, dates, apricots and peaches for the fruit in addition to our own Cricket Flours: 100% Pure Cricket Powder. However, when you make your own Spiced Granola with Cricket Protein, feel free to play around and explore with your favorite dried fruits to create the perfect spiced granola that your family will love.
4 cups oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup shaved coconut
1 cup chopped almonds
2 ½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup Cricket Flours: 100% Pure Cricket Powder
½ cup butter
½ cup honey
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup dried currants
½ cup dried dates
½ cup dried apricots
½ cup dried peaches
- Preheat oven to 335°F.
- In a large bowl, mix oats, pecans, coconut, almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg, cricket protein, and brown sugar.
- Melt the butter in the microwave, and mix together with honey until fully blended. Pour mixture into the mixed oats and dry ingredients (no fruit).
- Once mixed, spread out onto 2 non-stick baking sheets and place in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Every 7 minutes, mix and spread out the granola so that it fully crisps and does not burn.
- Once golden brown, remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before adding in the dried fruit.
