Berlin, November 4, 2022. Now that porridge has taken the hearts of breakfast fans by storm, the next breakfast trend is: granola. For the morning meal, a lot of fiber, vitamins and minerals, nutrient-rich potato preparation is suitable. Dieter Teppel, Managing Director of Kartoffel-Marketing GmbH (KMG): “Potatoes are great for granola. They provide valuable protein, are rich in vitamins and keep you full for a long time – the right thing for the first meal of the day. Potato-Marketing GmbH shows you how to make granola with potatoes yourself. .

Granola is behind the trend.

The current granola breakfast trend originated in New York in the 1900s. Dr. James Caleb Jackson invented the classic muesli flavoring “Granula”, which he also sold. But it wasn’t until the hippie movement of the 1960s that his creativity gained more attention.

In terms of ingredients, granola is hardly different from muesli. Both types of cereals are based on grains, nuts, fruits and seeds. The preparation makes the difference: when the muesli ingredients are mixed and ready to eat, the granola ingredients are baked, often adding honey, agave syrup, maple syrup or other sweeteners. This creates a crunchy effect that makes muesli a particularly good breakfast. The advantage of homemade granola is the low sugar content. Because industrially produced granola bars contain a lot of sugar.

Potatoes and other superfoods for breakfast

Another benefit of homemade granola is that you can mix your favorite superfoods like walnuts or sunflower seeds according to your personal taste. If you want to add another local superfood to your breakfast, choose potatoes. Granola meets the breakfast trend with important minerals like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iron, as well as lots of vitamin C.

Crunchy Potato Muesli: That’s how it’s done

Potato Muesli with Oats, Flax and Walnuts, first peel two large waxed potatoes and boil them in salted water. Then, using a potato ricer, press the potatoes into the bowl.

Roughly chop 75 grams of walnuts, place 100 grams of amaranth pops, 75 grams of rolled oats, 50 grams of sunflower seeds and chopped walnuts on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Bake the tray in the center of the oven for about 10 minutes. After five minutes, turn on the oven. Remove from the oven and transfer the berry and nut mixture directly into a bowl to cool.

Place the mashed potatoes in a bowl and mix with the fruit and nut mixture and 50 grams of flaxseed. Put 100 grams of agave syrup, 50 ml of coconut oil and 250 grams of peanut butter in a bowl and heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Then stir well.

Pour the heated liquid ingredients over the potato flake mixture. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix the liquid and dry ingredients well with your hands.

Then pour the granola mixture into a bowl lined with baking paper and smooth it out. Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Then take the mixture out of the oven and let it cool.

Crush the potato pulp with your hands and store in an airtight container. It will stay there for up to five days.

Tip: Other sweeteners like sugar beet syrup, squeezed apple juice or honey go well with granola. Simply vary according to your mood.
