This is a simple recipe for a honey nuts and seeds granola. I like a good granola for breakfast. I had a look at my favourite shop bought granola and didn’t like the list of ingredients. This is my second attempt at making a granola. It takes 40 minutes to cook in a medium oven and will keep for at least 1 month in an airtight container. I have used sunflower, linseeds, chia and sesame seeds. Add a cup of your favourite nuts I use mix of cashew nuts, walnuts and pecans. To make the seeds stick to the oats I use a tablespoon of ground linseeds and 3 tablespoons of water (this is a vegan trick for replacing eggs). If you want a full vegan granola replace the honey with some maple syrup. Add your favourite dried fruit after cooking. Great served with milk or yoghurt and fruit puree.Add to Favourites
