Today I’ll share my prize-winning marmalade granola recipe. Give it a try and see if you think it’s a winner.
A few years ago I entered a recipe competition. I’d never done it before, and haven’t since – but something spurred me to do it that one time! The idea of the competition was to come up with a healthy recipe using a specific brand of breakfast cereal – namely one made by Attune Foods.
I used their Erewhon crispy brown rice cereal, as it doesn’t include any sweeteners and is gluten free. It is the cereal I used in last week’s granola recipe too. Indeed, the recipe is very similar to the “Simple and quick” no added sugar granola recipe but this time, instead of apple sauce, I use marmalade.
I also added a couple of other ingredients too, as the competition recipe had to be 5 ingredients or more!!! But you can always simplify it two ingredients – oats and marmalade.
A word about the marmalade. Many marmalades contain high levels of added sugar. In this recipe, I use a low-sugar marmalade. Check the label and see how sweet it is and what sweetener is used. Or make your own low sugar or no-added sugar marmalade.
And in case you were wondering…my prize: a set of saucepans, plus a year’s supply of Attune Erewhon brown rice cereal! So as you can imagine, I have made these granola recipes many times!!!
