Nutty Granola Recipe

Cereal is one of my all time favourite meals, if i'm being really honest, I think i'd have it for all three meals a day if it wasn't frowned upon. But, although I do love a big bowl of Coco Pops or Special K, nothing beats homemade cereal. As with anything homemade, you can alter the recipe to your taste, and you know exactly what's going in, no horrible chemicals or extra sugar or salt added. 

Here I bring you a super nutty granola recipe that you'll be enjoying each morning with your glass of OJ. As with anything, feel free to make any changes to the recipe to suit your taste, and add anything you think might add that special touch. 


-4 cups of oats 
-1 cup of nuts (I used almonds and crushed hazelnuts) 
-1/2 cup of dried fruit (I used raisins) 
-1/4 cup of honey or syrup 
-1/4 cup of melted butter or oil
-1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla essence 
-A pinch of salt 

How to: 
-Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees C. 
-Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. 
-Add all of the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. 
-Place the mix on a baking tray and cook for 30 minutes. 
-Check the mix throughout and stir.
-Once cooked, leave to cool and keep in an airtight container.
