    mixing the wet ingredients for the granola
  • Warm the pan on a low heat stirring often until all the ingredients are well mixed.
  • Pour into the larger pan and stir round with a large sturdy metal spoon. Make sure you don’t leave any dry bits right at the bottom
  • When it’s fully mixed, divide equally into 3 large Pyrex or metal trays with high sides – Ikea ones as pictures are very good for this.
    The granola mix before putting in the oven
  • Put in the oven on 130°C Fan – for around an hour – turning over the mix every 15 minutes to avoid burning.

  • After an hour -depending on your oven, it should be ready – remove from oven – over cooking can impart a slightly overdone flavour to it and make the fruits to tough
  • Allow to cool completely before putting into airtight containers.

Notes

• This makes a super large quantity, so just divide everything by half for a smaller amount – the original recipe used half cups, but I found that a bit fiddly so doubled everything up to get rid of them. But if you’ve got the oven going, you may as well make a large batch as a small one as it gets eaten very quickly ‘cos it’s so yummy. You may even need to hide it away and ration it!
Thanks to Georgie de Fay for the original inspiration for this recipe…..
• If you want to make it more economical and less calorific, add in an extra cup or 2 of oats.
• I find this is best eaten sprinkled over an equal volume of raw porridge oats with a plant based milk of your choice.
