How to Make - Homemade Granola

I have been meaning to make some granola for myself (and perhaps my boyfriend if he's lucky) for such a long time. I decided today was the day. I felt like making something tasty to treat myself, I have been working at home freelancing for a while and the best thing to motivate you to get up early to begin work is a healthy delicious breakfast. This recipe is so inexpensive and you can make a huge amount of food with it. I made around 8-10 servings and I still have a titanic amount of un-used ingredients left over

I stopped by my local health food shop this afternoon to pick up the bits and pieces, Mother Earth in Newington Green. The guys that work there are really lovely and helpful, they have a few shops in the North London area so if you're local please drop in to grab your granola ingredients and other treats. I also bought some some wonderful organic Earl Grey tea by the Hampstead Tea Company. Instructions after the photos.

What you'll need

From Mother Earth:

2 cups of Spelt flakes

2 cups of Oat Flakes
1 cup of Mixed Seeds
1/2 cup of Sunflower Seeds
1/2 cup of Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 of Raisins

Store Cupboard:

3 tbsp Organic Honey 

2 tbsp White or Brown Sugar 
2 tbsp Dark Muscovado Sugar 
Pinch of Cinnamon

How to make it

Preheat your oven to 220. In a large bowl mix the nuts, dried fruit and flakes together. After a good mix up add the cinnamon or perhaps a little nutmeg if you prefer, then add the sugar and drizzle over the honey. After another good mix spoon onto a baking sheet and pop into the oven for around 15 - 20 mins. I am warning you - an absolutely beautiful smell of honey and nuts will waft around your kitchen making it very difficult to resist opening the oven door sooner than you should. Eat whilst still warm out of the oven with milk, the best way to eat granola! 

If you fancy using my printed linen as napkins or table cloths, like I did in the photos, you can purchase my fabric by the metre from my online shop here.
