Honey Nut Granola

Serves 14 | Prep 5 mins | Cook 25 mins |

GF DF EF MF

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 125ml maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 300g rolled oats
  • 25g dried cranberries
  • 25g sour cherries
  • 25g dried blueberries
  • 25g jumbo raisins
  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 50g pumpkin seeds
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 50g flaked almonds

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/130°C fan/ gas mark 2.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the oil, maple syrup, honey and vanilla. To this, add the oats and seeds and combine thoroughly.
  3. Spread the granola in a thin layer over two baking sheets and bake for 15 mins.
  4. Remove from the oven and stir through the dried fruits and coconut, then return to the oven for a further 10 mins. Don’t be tempted to wait for it to darken in colour or go too crispy, this is a lovely chewy soft bite granola that keeps a lovely texture.
  5. Remove from the oven and tip onto a large sheet of baking paper or another tray to cool. Once cooled you can store this in an clean kilner jar for up to a month, although its unlikely to last more than a day or two as it is really moreish with milk, yoghurt and even on its own!

TIP:

  • Wipe your tablespoon with oil to help with measuring the honey and maple syrup – it will glide straight off.
  • Play with flavours, let the children choose their favourites to add in the same quantities, there are lots of dried fruits to choose from!
