I have been trying to have something different for my weekend breakfasts, as I usually have 65g of cereal Monday - Friday. I recently made quick Danish pastries (blog post to follow), which was nice, but I was more impressed with this granola recipe from Nigella's Feasts. Now, the thought of making your own cereal can be daunting, but I assure you this is sooooo easy. I simply combined all the ingredients (oats, sunflower seeds, apple sauce, golden syrup, light brown sugar, almonds and spices), except for the raisins, spread in a baking tin and baked for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, this is how my granola turned out:
I must say this is delicious, and quite addictive: I've been eating handfuls as a snack, probably more so than having a bowl of granola.
I first started by placing all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Once mixed I spread across a baking tin.
