Rosewater is a great way of flavoring foods without adding a whole lot calories. I love its subtleness, while at the same time providing an invigorating freshness. Combined with lemon, this granola will surely help you wake up in the morning and have a good start of the day.
1/2 cup of raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 150C. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine lemon zest, lemon juice, rosewater and syrup/honey in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Take off the heat and let cool a little. Set aside.
In a big bowl, combine oats, flax seeds, and chopped pistachios. Pour the lemon syrup mixture over the oat nut mixture and stir until well combined. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Spread the granola evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely. Stir in raisins (optional).
Keep in airtight container.
