  • 200g clear honey
  • 4 tbsp mild-flavoured oil, such as sunflower or rapeseed
  • 300g rolled oats
  • 100g whole unblanched almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 140g dried apricots, roughly chopped


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. In a large pan, heat the honey and oil together until bubbling, then tip in the oats, almonds and cinnamon. Stir well until the oats are well coated, then tip onto 1-2 large baking sheets, spreading the mixture out. Bake for 20-25 mins, stirring halfway, until golden.

  2. Remove from the oven and, while still hot, stir in the apricots. Spread out again and press down with a spatula to cool – this will help it to clump together. Once cool, serve with yogurt or milk, and fruit, if you like. Will keep in an airtight container for 3 weeks. See 'Goes well with' for recipes using your granola.
