About this recipe
Granolas are always a popular breakfast option – and having your own home made batch ready to go in the cupboard is even better. Pre-bought granola can sometimes be a little high in added sugars, so by making your own you can focus on packing in the good stuff!
This recipe includes some great sources of nuts and seeds that will definitely start your day off well. Oats are a great source of insoluble fibre that can help fuel you through your morning – and the apple, cinnamon, ginger and orange add both flavour and sweetness – meaning you don’t need to add in any other sugars.
I would recommend adding some natural yoghurt and fresh chunks of apple, as a crunchy porridge topping, or simply serve the granola with some milk of your choice.
It also travels well in a Tupperware – so a great option to take to work or as breakfast on the go!
