Instead of buying supermarket granola (which can sometimes be quite high in added sugar!), I like to make my own - it's a lot easier than you might think, and you can use whatever nuts and seeds you happen to have on hand. If you like you can also add in a little chopped dried fruit - just make sure you do this after baking the rest of the mixture, as the sugar in the fruit means it tends to burn easily.
1 cup whole rolled oats
½ cup raw nuts, chopped (I used almonds, walnuts and cashews)
½ cup raw seeds (I used sunflower and pumpkin)
½ cup shredded coconut
a pinch of himalaya salt/sea salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or honey
Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together oil and syrup or honey, then add to dry ingredients and mix well to coat the dry ingredients.
Line a tray with baking paper and spread the mixture in a thin layer on the tray.
Bake at 150°C, checking often and stirring to ensure even browning.
When the granola has a nice light brown colour, remove from oven and cool.
Store in an airtight container.
Makes around 2 cups
