Another successful granola experiment at a cost of about 50p. Why anyone buys bags of granola is beyond me – this took about half hour with minimal effort. I also use Tesco basic oats that cost 75p for a kilogram. They taste great as porridge, flapjacks or granola. Happy days!

1) in a pan melt 2 dessert spoons of coconut oil and 1 dessert spoon of honey.

2) in a separate mixing bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cups of oats, 2 dessert spoons of chia seeds, handful of chopped nuts and whole seeds, and a good shake of desiccated coconut.

3) Add a couple of drops of vanilla essence or the seeds from a vanilla pod.

4) pour the liquid over the oat mixture and stir – it should just coat the oats.

5) lay the oats out on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Oven for 20 mins on 150 degrees C.

Sprinkle over some more desiccated coconut once cooled. I eat mine with natural yoghurt or sprinkled on porridge or cereal and milk. Tasty.
