How to store

The best way of storing granola is in an airtight glass jar. Once stored it will keep for up to six weeks.

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Toss the jumbo oats with the cinnamon, mixed nuts and a pinch of salt in an oven tray. Stir through the melted unsalted butter or coconut oil and the maple syrup. Put in the oven for 35-40 mins or until golden brown, stirring halfway. Allow to cool down completely, then stir through the mixed dried fruit before storing (see tip, below). Serve with milk, yogurt or sprinkled on porridge.
