Recipe: Nutty Coconut Granola | FOOD

I’ve never been very good at eating breakfast, I just can’t really stomach it in the morning so I’m often prepare something to eat mid morning when I reach the office and this nutty coconut granola recipe works perfectly. I can make up big batches of it on the weekend and that’s breakfast sorted for the rest of the week. It’s also completely vegan and natural with no added sugar or chemicals so it’s much nicer than the sugar filled granola you can buy from the supermarket.

The great thing about granola is that you can literally chuck anything in. I like a nutty granola so in mine I add pecans and sometimes cashew nuts and walnuts too but you might prefer to add some dried fruit to your version. Dried apricots, cranberries and raspberries work really well too. I’m not a big fruit fan so I just add some raisins to my mix. The coconut flavour here adds another layer which I think is really tasty but if you don’t like coconut you can skip this bit. I always like to add some seeds in mine and I usually just buy a pack of mixed seeds including pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and flax seeds. Sometimes I throw in some chia seeds too if I’ve got them in the cupboard. The honey is a natural sweetener and it helps to bind the mix so that it forms small clusters and the olive oil helps to give a golden colour when you put it in the oven but you could swap this out for a coconut oil instead – I’ve tried both and it works really well with either. I’ve never used chocolate in this mix before but you could add some cocoa powder to the mix and stir in some dark chocolate chunks after baking if you’re a chocoholic .

To serve, you can enjoy this with yoghurt, almond milk or normal milk if you fancy it. You could even sprinkle this over the top of a bowl of porridge for a bit of extra crunch.
