Recipe: Honey & Nut Granola

Recipe: Honey & Nut Granola

One of my most popular bakes has been my Wildflower Meadow Honey & Nut Granola. Freshly roasted nuts, rich tasting honey and a savoury note of sea salt to bring all those flavours together into balance.


Sadly, rocketing prices have meant that I can't make it for you at the moment but, for those of you suffering withdrawals, here is the recipe!


I believe that we should be mindful of what we put into our bodies and the effect that our diet has on the environment around us. I recommend using ingredients which are organic and as minimally processed as possible, preserving their nutritional value without unnecessary chemicals and additives. This is especially true for large scale mono-culture crops like almonds and cereals. Find out more here about why eating organic is good for us and the planet.


Makes: 900g


165g - organic oat flakes  

138g - organic wheat flakes   

110g - organic barley flakes

77g   - organic sunflower seeds

77g  - organic pumpkin seeds

110g - organic, natural, whole hazelnuts (skin on)

110g - organic, natural, whole almonds (skin on)

187g - your favourite honey (I used a certified organic, wildflower meadow honey)

28g   - light olive oil

3g    - natural, coarse sea salt

9g   - vanilla paste

What to do:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 175c (fan assisted oven)/ 185c.
  • Mix together the cereal flakes
  • Spread the flake mix onto a silicone mat on a large baking tray and roast for 16 min.
  • Combine the olive oil, honey, vanilla, sea salt, roughly chopped nuts and seeds in a large heat-proof bowl.
  • Taking care, add the hot, mixed flakes to the honey-nut mix and stir well to combine.
  • Spread the lot onto the silicone mat on a baking tray and return to the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning the mix over with a spatula every 10 minutes.
  • Keep a careful eye to ensure the granola evenly browns and does not burn.
  • Once consistently golden brown remove from the oven and allow to cool. Adjust the seasoning as needed (with extra sea salt or vanilla paste).
  • Cool completely before storing in an air-tight Kilner jar for up to 3 months.

 Try this granola for breakfast with fruit and yoghurt, milk or fresh orange juice. Also great with ice cream or mixed as part of a crumble topping sprinkled over your favourite roasted fruit.
