  • 570g porridge oats

  • 57g dried sweetened cranberries or other favourite dried fruit

  • 57g raisins


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 150C/Gas Mark 2.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except the dried fruit in a large bowl, mix thoroughly and place in a single layer on a non-stick or greased baking tray.
  3. Place in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. You will need to stir the granola mixture every 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then add the raisins and dried cranberries.
  5. Store in an airtight container and it will last a week or two.

Handy Hint

The granola can be eaten on its own or with milk for breakfast, sprinkled over yogurt or ice-cream, and of course left out on a dish for Santa's reindeer on Christmas Eve (that's what we did and called it Reindeer Food).

The almonds can be left out for those with a nut allergy or you can use chopped pecans, cashews, or other nuts.

The same goes for the cranberries, you can substitute any other dried fruit.
