School started today in the UAE and with 2 kids in school, I try my best to prepare things ahead of time to make my mornings less stressful. Over the weekend I try to prepare things that the kids can have for breakfast (whether at home or on the go) or they can pack them in their lunchboxes .
One of my kids’ favorite recipes (that you probably saw on my instagram story more than once) is these oat clusters (or granola clusters). The kids love eating these in the morning with some yogurt, fruits and a drizzle of honey or they take them to school as a snack.
I personally love munching on a few in the afternoon or whenever I am feeling hungry and need a little pick me up. They are perfectly crunchy on the outside, slightly chewy in the center, sweet without being overly so. The cinnamon and maple syrup are a brilliant combo that you just have to try.
The secret to creating these large oat clusters is the use of the oat flour. It acts as the glue that helps the clusters stick together. You can replace all of the oat flour or part of it with almond flour if you like. The idea is to have it finely ground.
I personally grind my own oat flour by pulsing it in the food processor. It is quick and easy and saves me from buying one more pantry item ๐Ÿ™‚
