Cooking with Sake: Handmade Granola

Customize it as you like! Granola and Japanese sake might seem an untypical combination, but this healthy and savory recipe is worth a try. Mixing honey with sake adds a fresh and rich aroma to the granola.

As this recipe contains no food additives, unfortunately, it doesn’t have a long shelf life. But you can be reassured that it is very good for your body. Customize your granola by adding oatmeal and your favorite dried fruits and nuts too!

Ingredients (Preferred Amount)

1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup of nuts of your choice
1/2 cup of dried fruits of your choice
1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of Japanese sake
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil
A pinch of cinnamon

How to Make: Steps

Step 1:
Preheat the oven at 120°C. Meanwhile, mix honey (or maple syrup) with sake.

Step 2:
Chop the nuts and dried fruits. Mix all the ingredients other than dried fruits, and spread them evenly on the baking tray. Make sure to lay parchment paper over the tray beforehand.
Bake at 120°C for 80 minutes.

Step 3:
Let it cool for a while, and then add dried fruits and cinnamon. Mix lightly.
*When home-making granola, olive oil might have an overwhelming aroma, so a typical vegetable oil or grapeseed oil is preferred.
