Warm Granola Bowl
Reprinted with permission from Foiled! Easy, Tasty, Tin Foil Meals, by Jesseca Hallows
Makes 4 large servings
4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used coconut sugar)
1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup oil (I used melted coconut oil)
1/4 cup honey (I used maple syrup)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Add-ins: dried fruit, toasted nuts, toasted coconut, etc.
1. Layer two, 18-inch long, heavy-duty sheets of foil together then spray with a generous coat of nonstick spray. Repeat so that you have two foil packets prepared.
2. Combine the oats, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.
3. Stir the oil, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla together in a separate bowl.
4. Divide the oats and put them directly in the center of the prepared foil.
5. Bring the two longer edges together above the food (bringing up both layers of foil). Fold the edges down twice, creating the top seal. Press the side edges together and fold, creating a secure packet.
6. Place the packets on a grill grate over hot coals*.
7. Cook the granola for 12 to 15 minutes, gently shaking the packets every few minutes to help the granola cook evenly.
8. Remove the packets from the heat and carefully open them. Stir the granola then add in dried fruit or additional ingredients.
* Recipe Notes: Let the coals heat for at least half an hour before cooking so that they reach the best cooking temperature (the coals should be white). Tin foil recipes are not exact. You will have to adjust the cooking time according to the heat level of your coals. The packets can also be cooked on a grill or in the oven (preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit).
