MAKES 8-10 SERVINGS
This granola is super easy to make and tastes great with and without the nuts. Eat it with milk, nut milk, yoghurt or on its own as a little snack.
240g rolled oats
50g desiccated coconut
100g mixed nuts, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 medium free-range egg white
100g mixed dried fruit, like cranberries or chopped apricots
- Preheat the oven to 150C/gas mark 2. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.
- In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, nuts, oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. In a separate small bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy and stir it into the granola mixture.
- Spread the granola mixture onto the prepared tray. Bake for 45 minutes, getting an adult to turn it once during cooking. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
- Break up the cold granola and stir in the dried fruit.
TIP: Your homemade granola can be stored in the cupboard in an airtight container for 2–3 weeks.
