Ingredients

  • 125 g porridge oats
  • 50 g mixed seeds such as sunflower, sesame, pumpkin and golden linseed
  • 50 g mixed unsalted nuts such as cashews, almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil plus extra for greasing
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 3 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 25 g dried blueberries
  • 25 g dried cranberries
  • 25 g dried cherries
  • 15 g desiccated coconut
  • Greek yoghurt or milk to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 150C (130C, 300F).
  • Place the oats, seeds and nuts in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the oil, honey and syrup and stir well to combine.
  • Tip the mixture into a large, lightly oiled roasting tin and spread out into an even layer.
  • Cook for 15 minutes.
  • Mix together the berries, cherries and coconut, add to the tin, and bake for a further 15 minutes.
  • Leave in the tin to cool completely.
  • When cold, break the granola into small pieces and transfer to an airtight container.
  • To serve, layer Greek yoghurt and granola into glass dishes. Alternatively, serve with milk.
  • To eat mine, I put a big spoonful of greek yoghurt in a bowl, topped with a mountain of granola and drizzled with extra honey.
