Homemade Granola – Cranberry, Goji & Apricot

Simple Homemade Granola 

You know Granola is so easy to make, have you ever tried? Jump too it you’re missing out homemade granola really is the best! 

I don’t know about you but I find those small boxes or bags of granola so expensive and soooooo sweet too, check out the side of the pack, the nutritional information, i think you’ll be very surprised 🙁

So anyway try making this one. 

Here is is before baking 🙂 

 

Firstly it makes so much and is nowhere near as expensive as the shop bought stuff and twice as tasty. It’s also so satisfying and easy to make.

You can add all sorts of combos of fruits and nuts. It really is down to you and what you prefer 

Dried blueberries, cranberries, coconut – whatever takes your fancy – go experiment.

Coconut oil for your Granola 

Instead of the vegetable oil you could always use coconut oil if you prefer.

I love coconut oil and it’s so good for you! I’ve popped the link in to my Coconut Oil post where I talk at length about everything you can do with this miracle oil.

From eye makeup remove to teeth whitener all the way to an ingredient for baking and frying with! Have a read you’ll be surprised 

 

How to serve your simple granola

Serve cold with milk or yoghurt – so much better than the bought stuff.

Keeps for about 3 weeks in an airtight container…. it will never last 3 weeks –

it’s so very  good 🙂 

Homemade Granola as a gift 

Also it also makes the most lovely gift. Simply pop it in a mason jar and tie a ribbon round! 

So pretty and so thoughtful
