Homemade Oat Granola

This is another of my favourite Oat breakfasts! It is much quicker to prepare than porridge and believe me, once you try the homemade granola it will be difficult to go back to the store bought ones.

The honey gives the oats a rich golden colour and a delicious crunch. Eaten with greek yoghurt, this is a real treat!

  4. Let the granola cool before placing in an air tight container.

Notes/Substitutes

  1. I love pecan nuts and almonds but this will taste equally good with brazil nuts or hazel nuts.
  2. Add raisins or chopped dates to granola once cooled.
  3. Maple syrup can also be used instead of honey.
