Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/Fan 180oC.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the cashews, peanuts, 60g rolled oats, sesame, cinnamon, vanilla, honey (or maple syrup), and oil. Mix well until the mixture is slightly sticky and clusters together.
  3. Place a sheet of greaseproof paper onto a baking tray and spread the granola mix onto the tray in an even layer. Pop the mix into the oven for 8–10 minutes until browned. Don’t worry if the mix is a little soft when you take it out; it will firm up as it cools.
  4. To make the porridge, add the remaining 60g of rolled oats into a medium saucepan and add 120ml cold water – as well as the honey if you’re using it – and bring them to a gentle simmer. Once the porridge has thickened to your preferred consistency, turn off the heat and serve into bowls. Top with sliced banana, a sprinkling of the granola, and a drizzle of tahini if you’re using it.

Any leftover granola can be kept in an airtight container for 7 days, and is a great addition to a fruit crumble or to natural yoghurt.

You can also add extra fruit for an extra 5 A DAY portion, or different nuts in your cupboard like pecans or walnuts, or seeds such as linseeds and chia to increase the nutrient content of the dish.
