Crunchy Granola Recipe

By Megan 05 Oct 2018

Ingredients (makes about 12 breakfast bowlfuls)

  • 175g mixed nuts (pecan halves and peanuts in their red skins)
  • 450g rolled oats
  • 50g sesame seeds
  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 125ml sunflower oil
  • 100ml runny honey (try one of the lightly flavoured flower ones)
  • half a 170g packet dried berries and cherry


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5/fan oven 170C. Halve some of the pecans, leave some whole. Mix with peanuts, oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. In a jug, measure the oil and pour into the mixture, then measure the honey – it will slide out easily. Stir together with a fork to break up any big clumps of oats.
  • Pour on to a large baking tray with sides, preferably non-stick, in a thin layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring well at least twice and bringing the mixture in from the edges, until it is golden. Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool.
  • Mix in the berries and cherries and serve with plenty of chilled milk.
  • Store for up to 1 month in airtight container.
