Homemade Granola (V)
Packed with the good stuff, this makes for an energy boosting start to your day.
300g jumbo oats
100g standard oats
200g whole nuts, for this recipe we have used almonds and hazelnuts
200g mixed seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
50g runny honey
200g dried fruit, for this recipe we have used sultanas and raisins
Pre heat your oven to 190C / 170C fan / 375F / Gas mark 5.
Use a large baking/roasting tray. Add the oats, nuts, seeds and cinnamon to the roasting dish and toss through with your hands until mixed. Drizzle over the oil and the honey and mix again, making sure all the ingredients have a light coating of the oil and honey.
Gently smooth down but don’t press into the tray. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until starting to brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few mins. Using a wooden spoon gently move the granola around the dish to make sure it is not stuck to the bottom. Then leave to cool.
Once cooled add the dried fruit and mix through for a final time. Store in an airtight container and enjoy with fresh yogurt and your choice of topping.
