I like to make my own granola, which means I can pick the fruit I like and also control how much sugar goes in. This may take a bit of time to make, but you can make a big batch and keep it for several weeks.

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 100°C/Fan 80°C.
  2. Place all ingredients in a warm mixing bowl and stir with a metal spoon until all the oats are covered with the honey and oil.
  3. Turn out onto a thick-based, lightly oiled baking sheet, breaking up any larger lumps of mixture if necessary.
  4. Place in the bottom of the oven for about 4–6 hours, stirring from time to time to ensure an even heat and to prevent sticking or browning.
  5. Once crispy, remove and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. The mixture will keep fresh for several weeks, if kept free of moisture.
Spoon the mixture over a small pot of low-fat bio yoghurt to create a delicious start to the day. This recipe is so versatile it would also make a wonderfully healthy dessert
