Granola

Very easy granola recipe for you today. I will warn you, it is very moreish! I really like it with soya yoghurt and fruit.

I didn’t have any mixed nuts so used lots of seeds and some pistachios that I found at the back of the cupboard. You can also add coconut towards the end of cooking which is really nice. The best thing about this recipe is that you can play around with it as much as you like, it is very adaptable and quite forgiving!.

Based on recipe from Good Food: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1315/crunchy-granola-with-berries-and-cherries

Prep: 10-20 mins Cook: 25 mins Make around 12 breakfast bowlfuls

Ingredients

  • 175g mixed nuts
  • 450g rolled oats
  • 110g seeds
  • 125ml sunflower oil
  • 100ml runny honey
  • 85g dried fruit

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5/fan oven 170C. Halve some of the larger nuts, leave some whole. Mix with all the nuts, oats, seeds in a large bowl. In a jug, measure the oil and pour into the mixture, then measure the honey – it will slide out easily. Stir together with a fork to break up any big clumps of oats.img_0484 Pour on to a large baking tray with sides, preferably non-stick, in a thin layer. I’d advise putting it on 2 baking trays as my layer was too thick so it took longer to go golden and I had to keep stirring it.
  2. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring well at least twice and bringing the mixture in from the edges, until it is golden. Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool.
  3. Mix in the dried fruit.
  4. Store for up to 1 month in an airtight container.
