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

  3. Place into a paper lined baking dish.
  4. Add the cinnamon, vanilla, honey, star anise, and cloves then stir to combine.

  6. Once cooked, remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly.

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.
