Makes about 10 servings Line a bowl with two or three tablespoons of peanut butter, then pour a couple of handfuls of this granola on top. Drizzle in some honey if you want some extra sweetness, then mix it all together and dive in.
— 270g rolled oats — 3 tbsp brown sugar — ½ tsp ground cinnamon — 100g honey — 60ml extra-virgin olive oil — 1 tsp vanilla extract — about 100g dried fruit, cut into small dice — 60g raw or toasted nuts or seeds, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 150C/ gas mark 2 and arrange a shelf in the middle. Place the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and a quarter of a teaspoon of salt in a large bowl, and stir to combine.
Combine the honey, oil and vanilla in a small bowl and stir until blended. Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture and combine until the oats are thoroughly coated.
Spread the oats in a thin, even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and continue baking until the granola is a very light golden brown – five to 15 more minutes.
Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and allow the granola to cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. This will take about 20 minutes. The granola will harden as it cools. Mix the fruit and nuts or seeds into the granola.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container.
