This granola is from Sarah’s cookbook, but also published on her blog here.
I’ve dabbled with the recipe a bit over the half-dozen times I’ve made it – mostly out of necessity, because my supermarket doesn’t stock half the recommended ingredients. That, and I really love oats.
Because you only add the ingredients you like (and leave out the bits you don’t), you’re almost guaranteed to love it.
And – ignoring my oats – the recipe’s pretty much Paleo. This granola is so easy to make – it seems like it’s impossible to stuff it up. Honestly. I set fire to the baking paper which lined my tray and everything still turned out tasty and delicious. Not burnt at all!
Bonus: the cinnamon makes the whole house smell good enough to eat.
With thick, natural yogurt, this granola is gorgeous. So crunchy. So filling. So good. I prefer it a little sweeter most mornings and opt for eating it with full-fat milk instead. Both are good and completely change the profile of the meal!
It’s portable, so you can easily eat it at work (like I did with my store brought cereals previously). Breakfast has been the hardest meal to adjust with (No boxed cereals! No toast! No fruit!) so having something so sugary-muesli/cereal-like, and filling, has been a great help.
Plus: keeping it in a nice glass container makes it feel extra special! Adds to the morning ritual of breakfast and a coffee to get the day off to a good start.
