Honey Granola

A delicious and healthy breakfast cereal, easy and worth making yourself, especially if it’s difficult to find packaged versions without gluten or nuts. Make the crunchy honey clusters in advance; then add, according to taste, nuts, other cereals, seeds, dried fruit, fresh fruit, or whatever takes your fancy just before serving. The main ingredients keep well, so it’s worth stocking up on your favorite toppings.

      Spoon the honey into a medium-sized bowl. Gently heat the honey if it isn’t quite runny enough to mix easily. Add the rolled oats and stir gently to ensure they are evenly coated.

      Spread the oats thinly onto the oiled baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10–15 minutes or until golden, checking once or twice to ensure that they are not burning.
