1 MARCH 2014

Happy March everyone! The sun is shining in Birmingham and it finally feels like Spring has arrived.    As the weather warms up it's time to ditch the porridge that's been warming you up on the frosty winter mornings and try something a little more summery. How about my recipe for homemade crunchy nut, maple syrup and dark chocolate granola?

Using only natural sugars, this recipe is wholesome and sweet, and a little more guilt free than your shop-bought alternatives. Win-win!

To make, simply combine the ingredients (minus the chocolate chips) below in a mixing bowl and spread out on a baking tray. Bake in the oven at 165 degrees Celsius, stirring occasionally, for around 30 - 40 minutes until golden brown in colour. Leave to cool completely and then add the chocolate. Store in an airtight container and serve with natural or greek yogurt.


2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup pecans/walnuts
1/4 cup almonds, halved
1/4 cup hazelnuts, halved
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup runny honey
1/2 - 1tsp cinnamon (to taste)
1 tbsp good quality dark chocolate chips, chopped
