Honey & Rosemary Granola with Spiced Baked Apples & Pears

July 5 2019


Guys, this week's new recipe is a honey and rosemary granola with spiced baked apples and pears. This recipe is delicious for breakfast and is also perfect as a ‘healthier’ dessert.

In the step-by-step video, I show you how I prepare this for quick ‘on-the-go’ breakfasts and also how I plate it up for guests or a special occasion.

Blending the mixture in a food processor gives the granola those delicious crunchy chewy chunks. Yum! If you don’t have a food processor you could finely chop all the dry ingredients and then mix them in a bowl with the wet ingredients and spices to combine.

Feel free to mix and match the two recipes as you need. Peaches, nectarines, or apricots would be a delicious alternative to the baked apples and pears - depending on the season you’re in.

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Spiced Baked Apples & Pears

  4. Add the cinnamon, vanilla, honey, star anise, and cloves then stir to combine.

Rosemary Honey Granola

  1. In a food processor combine the rolled oats, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts, cinnamon, olive oil, raw honey, fresh rosemary leaves, and a pinch of sea salt and pulse until coarsely ground.
  2. Spread out onto a paper lined baking tray and bake at 180C / 350F for 15 minutes, stirring the granola every 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

To Assemble

  1. On a serving plate, dollop and smear a few large spoonfuls of yoghurt.
  2. Top with spoonfuls of the baked apples and pears, sprinkle the granola, add some fresh sliced apple or pear, sprinkle some chia seeds, add a few rosemary sprigs, and drizzle with honey. Serve and enjoy!

Breakfast Pots

  1. To make the breakfast pots simply layer a few spoonfuls of yoghurt, the apple and pear mixture, the granola, some freshly sliced apple or pear, a sprinkle of chia seeds, and a drizzle of honey into jars then pop them into the fridge. The breakfast pots will keep for a few days. 

*This honey rosemary granola would also taste delicious with fresh stone fruit instead of the baked apples and pears.
