General Granola

5-10 mins prep + 20 mins baking
? 1l jar

300 g oats
2 handfuls of flax seeds
5 chopped dates
handful of hazelnuts
handful of desiccated coconut
handful of raisins
handful of walnuts
handful of brazil nuts

1 big tbsp of peanut butter
two spoon size chunks of coconut oil
2 tbsp of honey

Preheat the oven at 160ºC. Mix all the dry ingredients in a big bowl. In a small pan, melt coconut oil and mix in peanut butter and honey until it’s liquidy and all mixed together. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread on a big tray with baking paper and put in the oven for about 20 mins (until golden and crispy). Stir half way through.

Price: £3.50 (based on Sainsbury’s prices)
Notes: The base is always oats and coconut oil with honey / maple syrup. I tend to choose the other ingredients according to what I have at home at that moment so feel free to put any nuts, dry fruit or seeds you have. You can also put coconut milk but I haven’t figured the right amount yet.
