Simple Sunday Granola

I have named this my ‘Simple Sunday’ granola as it is such a quick and easy recipe that I always make on a Sunday afternoon in preparation for the week. It makes just enough for five portions (if I stop myself from eating the mix off the spoon!!) and I usually eat it with some almond milk and fruit or some yoghurt, banana and raw honey. The ‘one bowl’ recipe is such a good way to ensure you have a healthy breakfast for every day, which you can just quickly package up into a pot or jar and take on your travels! The thing with this granola is that I don’t get bored of it, unlike lunchtime salads which I have to change quite often! I love it so much that I often have it at the weekend too!

Of course, there is plenty of scope for adding variety into this too. Although I have given a basic recipe and measurements, I really encourage you to experiment and would love to hear of the variations you come up with! I would recommend keeping the same proportion of oats, as they are such a healthy way to stay full until lunch, and then using up whatever complimenting ingredients you have in the cupboard! What do you eat your granola with?
