Carrot Topped Granola

Serves 4


300g jumbo oats, e.g. White's Organic Jumbo Oats
75g pumpkin seeds
25g chia seeds
75g flaked almonds
50g flaked coconut
75g dried cranberries
2 tbsp. rapeseed oil
100ml maple syrup
1 orange, zest finely grated
2 tbsp. orange blossom honey

225ml Greek yogurt
Cantaloupe elon
Kiwi fruit


1. Preheat the oven to 160C.  Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

2. In a large bowl mix together the oats, seeds, flaked almonds, coconut flakes and cranberries.

3. Gently heat the rapeseed oil, maple syrup, orange zest and honey in a large saucepan.  Stir to combine.

4. Remove from the heat, tip into the oat mixture and stir well to combine.

5. Spread the mixture out onto the baking tray and bake for 30 minutes, stirring once during cooking.  Remove when golden brown.

6. Serve layered with Greek yogurt and topped with carrots made from the cantaloupe and kiwi fruit.

7. Can also be cooled then stored in an airtight jar.  Use within 2 weeks.

Cook's tip: If you like your granola to cluster more and have more crunch you need to add a tablespoon or two more honey. If you like a chewier granola then try whisking an egg white and folding through the ingredients before baking.
