a good day

I am a strong believer in  starting the day with a good breakfast. Here is my favourite granola recipe that I would like to share with you.

  • 125g Butter
  • 150ml Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 500g A variety of oats
  • a handful Flaked almonds
  • a handful Chopped nuts
  • 5 tablespoon Desiccated coconut, slightly toasted
  • 200g Dried fruits (my personal favourites are figs, apricots or banana chips for some crunch!)
  • 2 handful Sunflower and pumpkin seeds

1. Preheat oven to 140
°C on fan
2. Heat butter, honey, vanilla gently in a pan
3. Mix all other ingredients, except the dried fruits in large mixing bowl
4. Combine the melted butter well with the dry ingredients
5. Spread out into 2 large flat baking trays and bake for 25 minutes, mixing every 5 minutes to avoid clumps
6. Remove from oven and mix every 5 minutes until cool
7. Mix in dried fruits once cold
8. The granola will keep in an air tight container up to 2 weeks
9. Eat it with your favourite plain or Greek yoghurt with a drizzle of honey. ENJOY!!

This is so easy to make and definitely smell and taste nicer than the ones that come in a box. I hope you like it as much as I do.
