Chunky Summer Fruits Granola

Chunky Summer Fruits Granola

Hi all!

Something to get you going for the day is the chunky summer granola I have made below. After doing some research I have found what I think is a good combo of ingredients to create a granola that is filling, energising, and completely healthy.

After all we all want to know we are eating breakfast or a snack that is nutritious and good for you!

Follow the below to make your chunky granola, and enjoy! xo

PS – you may not hear from me for a couple of weeks…this is because I will be in Vegas & LA with Nic! We will be doing some fun bougie things, and I will be getting together a list of top places to eat in LA, so look out for this. XO Elyse

Step 5:

  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan
  • Heat 1 tbsp of honey for 20 seconds in the microwave
  • Add both to the mixture

Step 6:

  • Mix well until you have a good sticky consistency (you may need to add more honey for stickiness – do this one tbsp at a time)

Step 7:

  • Spoon the mixture into the baking tray and make sure it is flat, with a thickness of about 1cm
  • Put this in the oven, covered with foil, for 15 mins.
  • After 15 mins. uncover this for the remaining 15 mins.

Step 8:

  • When it is done take it out of the oven and leave it to cool

Step 9:

  • Once cool, break up the granola into large chunks

* you will want to store this in an air tight container to keep it fresh
* as the ingredients are all cooked it doesn’t need to be kept refrigerated

You can have this in any of the following ways:
– dry
– with milk
