Granola is deceptively easy to make and much cheaper than buying it at the grocery store. It’s also simple to customise. Like sunflower or pumpkin seeds? Toss in a few tablespoons before baking. Just make sure any nuts are roughly chopped, and if you’re adding chunks of chocolate (vegan of course!), mix these in once the granola is baked and cooled.
You only need one bowl to mix the ingredients together then spread out on a baking tray to bake. I like to use coconut oil for my granola but any neutral oil works – so feel free to sub in vegetable or sunflower oil.
The oils in nuts like pecans make them liable to burn rather easily, which is why I recommend sticking to a relatively low oven temperature. When you remove the granola to give it a stir half-way through, check for any areas which might be browning more quickly than others and be ready to remove the tray before anything burns.
