Chefs tips
  • You could simplify this recipe by just adding raisins or apricots.
  • If stored in an airtight container, the granola will keep for at least two weeks.
  • Serve with skimmed milk and fresh berries, or a chopped apple. You could also top this dish with a teaspoon of 0% fat yogurt.
  • Try adding different seeds such as sunflower. You can also experiment with different nuts, such as walnuts or crushed brazil nuts in place of almonds, or dried prunes rather than apricots.
