    The final recipe in my series for Flahavan's porridge is a delicious home-made granola. I love having granola for breakfast but often the kind you buy in the supermarket can be loaded up with sugar, so by making your own you'll able to take control over what goes in it. 

    I've tried to use some lighter ingriendents in this recipe which are packed full of nutrients making this a little easier on the conscious. It's great to have sprinkled over some low fat yoghurt and fruit compote for a tasty/guilt free pudding in the evening.Flahavan's Granola Recipe
    What you'll need:
    100g mixed nuts
    300g Flahavans jumbo oats
    50g seeds
    1/2 pack dried fruit
    150ml runny honey*
    50ml golden syrup
    A good pinch of dried coconut flakes
    1.5 tbsp Coconut oil (you can use vegetable oil instead)
    * You could try using agave nectar

    What to do:
    Preheat your oven to 190 (170 fan)
    Mix the nuts, fruit, seeds, oats and a pinch of salt together in a bowl
    Add oil, golden syrup and honey to the mixture and give it a good stir - try to break up any big clumps of oats. I tend to leave some of the smaller lumps to give it more of a bite!
    Grease a baking tray and spread your oat mix evenly
    Bake for 25 minutes, giving it a stir every so often until it's nice and golden
    Transfer to a large bowl and let it cool before stir in your coconut flakes

    Once it's cooled, you'll be able to keep your granola for about a month. 
    Do you have any granola recipes? I'd love to hear how you make yours
