Easy Granola

Ingredients

  • 200g fine oats
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted  (or any other mild flavoured oil)
  • 1 tablespoon runny honey or maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Other ingredients, as liked:  100g dried fruit. Lots to choose from! Try a combination of your favourites. Chopped apricots/dates/prunes, mango/ apple. Scissors may be easier than a knife! Or raisins, currants and sultanas. 50g chopped nuts and seeds of your choice. How about a couple of spoonfuls of 4 seed mix and make up the 50g with chopped Brazil nuts or almond flakes?

Much cheaper than commercial varieties and more fun!
