I absolutely love making this for breakfast. Healthier, better for the environment (less plastic packaging!), and probably cheaper than buying it from the supermarket. I think it’s actually tastier too – you can personalise it according to your preferences!
Preheat oven to 175ºC. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl:
- 360g rolled oats
- 120g nuts – I like using almonds and/or walnuts
- 60g seeds e.g. sunflower, pumpkin, etc.
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinammon
Add wet ingredients to the bowl and mix well:
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 120ml olive oil
- 120ml honey
Spread the granola mix evenly on a baking tray. Bake for approx. 20 mins until golden. Stir it halfway after 10 mins and spread evenly again before placing back in the oven for another 10 mins.
Once completely cooled down, break into small pieces and mix in 100g dried fruit (I usually add raisins, but dried cranberries are also a great option). Store in an airtight container to keep and enjoy in the morning with yoghurt, fruit and maybe even a drizzle of honey!
