Homemade Granola 

I am a muesli/granola addict! Never mind oats being the perfect breakfast food, I’m more than happy to have a big bowl of granola as Greek yogurt for dinner, adds dollop of honey or peanut butter (or both), some sliced banana, fresh berries and I’m in heaven! You’ll find lots of granola recipes online, many will contain butter and brown sugar, this one is a healthier version, all of the ingredients are natural and honey can be substituted for agave nectar or maple syrup to make it entire vegan!

PREHAT OVEN 200°C

  • 250g rolled oats
  • 250g dried fruit and nuts (almonds, hazelnuts are good nut choices, and my favourite dried fruits are dates and cranberries… whatever ratio of fruit and nuts you go for is entirely up to you, it doesn’t have to be half and half)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons runny honey ( for vegans, substitute the honey with agave nectar or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  1. Add the nuts and oats to a large mixing bowl
  2. Add all the other ingredients ( except the dried fruit)
  3. Stir the mixture and transfer to a large lined baking tray
  4. Put in the oven and stir the mixture at intervals until the oats all turn the same golden brown (it’s quite easy to overcook this mixture so keep watching it!)
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool
  6. Add the dried fruit and store in an air-tight container
