Breakfast granola recipe

By April 10, 2014FOOD & DRINK, RECIPES

The granola we serve at breakfast is always very popular – so we thought we’d give you the recipe so you can make it at home yourselves. Feel free to add your favourite nuts, berries and seeds to make it your own.

Method:

  1. In a large pan, measure out the demerara sugar, honey and butter.
  2. Place on a low heat and stir until all the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool to a warm temperature.
  3. Put all of the other ingredients into a large bowl and mix until they are all evenly distributed.
  4. Pour over the warm syrup mixture and mix thoroughly until everything is evenly coated.
  5. Spread the mixture thinly onto a baking tray and bake gently at 150oC for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like it.
  6. Serve with cold milk or yogurt. It can be stored in an air tight container for up to a month – if it lasts that long.
