Crunchy Granola with Home Dried Fruits

Start the day with a breakfast of crunchy granola with added home-grown dried fruits. Accompany it with a tub of plain yoghurt to make not just a delicious meal but one that is highly nutritious and packed full of vitality. Wash down with a glass of home-made apple juice and be certain to keep your energy levels up till lunchtime!

This home-made granola recipe certainly rivals the expensive yet popular products of market-leading cereal producers but at a fraction of the price!

The Granola Base

6 cups rolled oats 1 cup of each of the following: * Soya flour * Wheatgerm * Sesame seeds * Sunflower seeds * Chopped nuts * Dried milk powder * Rapeseed oil * Honey

Cook’s Tip!: Measure the dry ingredients first. Then measure the oil before the honey to prevent the honey from sticking!!

  2. Spread on 2 large baking trays and cook for 50mins in a slow oven at Reg: 2 / 300ºF or 140ºC
  3. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking to a rich golden brown colour.
  4. Store in airtight containers
