Servings8 persons,Preparation time 5 minutes,Cooking time: 35 minutes
1/2 cup of mixed nuts, such as hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios, roughly chopped
1/4 cup of pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or a mixture of the two
1 cup of rolled porridge or jumbo oats
2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons of runny honey
1/2 cup of mixed dried fruit, such as sour cherries,
Make sure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan, then set the temperature to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
Once the pan has heated up, tip in the nuts, seeds, oats, coconut and cinnamon. Add 3 tablespoons of honey and set the timer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop any larger dried fruit into chunks. When the time’s up, add the dried fruit and the remaining honey to the pan and set the timer for a further 10 minutes, so it’s golden brown and smells fantastic. Spoon the granola onto the lined baking sheet and leave to cool.
Either serve the granola as soon as it’s cool, or pop it in an airtight container for another day. Delicious served with natural yogurt and fresh seasonal berries.
Chef’s tip: Keep things interesting by using different combos of nuts, fruit and seeds each time you make a batch of this delicious granola. You’ll soon find your favourites.
