Do you have a health-conscious friend? Try giving this healthy breakfast treat which also makes an energy-boasting snack! You can now find dried pineapple, papaya and jackfruit alongside other dried fruits in large supermarkets. Some provinces, like Abra make a specialty of dried fruit. Not only is the stuff delicious, it's cheaper too. Know anyone from there? Let them give you what you need for this pinoy granola recipe.


You will need:

3 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 cup pinipig (optional)
1 cup cashew nuts
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey

¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup raisins
½ cup dried mangoes, cut into small pieces
½ cup dried pineapple, cut into small pieces
½ cup dried papaya, cut into small pieces
½ cup dried jackfruit, cut into small pieces

Here's how:

Combine the oatmeal, pinipig and cashew nuts in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, honey and brown sugar until well mixed. Pour over the oatmeal mixture and toss together. Spread the mixture on a shallow baking pan with a rim and bake at 350oF for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool, then combine well with raisins, dried mangoes, pineapple, papaya and jackfruit. Store in airtight containers.

Yield: 7 cups of granola
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Storage time: 2 months, room temperature
Packaging ideas: Put granola in clear plastic jars with tight-fitting lids, or pour into clear plastic bags and seal well with tightly tied ribbons. The filled bags then be put inside decorative boxes.
