I’ve been searching for the perfect granola recipe for a while now. It’s my go-to breakfast every weekday and there’s nothing better (except maybe ice-cold milk and Crunchy Nuts) to get me through a morning. However my favourite Sainsbury’s granola is fairly expensive at about £4 a bag, so I thought it would be great to be able to make my own version. The problem is that for a long while I failed to find a recipe that a) was cheaper than £4 to make and b) didn’t include food items I can’t stand.
So when a few weeks ago a fellow blogger (the brilliant Miss Thrifty) shared her recipe for Honey Nut Granola I just had to pin it to my Pinterest boards as I’d finally found the perfect recipe. It sounded super-easy to make, looked scrumptious and didn’t include any items that I normally balk at – result! Anyway, it’s now two weeks later and I’ve already made this granola twice – yes it’s that good! So I think you’ll agree its high time this life-changing Granola made an appearance on Pinterest Corner.
Miss Thrifty’s original recipe can be found here and the only thing I changed was the addition of cranberries as I had some left over from some homemade Cranberry, Chocolate and Hazelnut biscuits I’d made the week before. I honestly can’t recommend the recipe enough, it’s so scrumptious and is just as good with milk or yoghurt. The second time I made it I added raisins and some hazelnuts which were equally delicious. So I’d definitely recommend playing around with the items you add in.
