  • 175g mixed nuts (pecan halves and peanuts in their red skins)
  • 450g rolled oats
  • 50g sesame seeds
  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 125ml sunflower oil
    Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…

  • 100ml runny honey (try one of the lightly flavoured flower ones)



    Honey is made by bees from the nectar they collect from flowers. Viscous and fragrant, it's…

  • half a 170g packet dried berries and cherry



    One of the delights of the summer, cherries are much loved for their succulent texture, flavour…


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5/fan oven 170C. Halve some of the pecans, leave some whole. Mix with peanuts, oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. In a jug, measure the oil and pour into the mixture, then measure the honey – it will slide out easily. Stir together with a fork to break up any big clumps of oats.

  2. Pour on to a large baking tray with sides, preferably non-stick, in a thin layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring well at least twice and bringing the mixture in from the edges, until it is golden. Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool.

  3. Mix in the berries and cherries and serve with plenty of chilled milk.

  4. Store for up to 1 month in airtight container.

Have made this several times now and it's brilliant. So easy to make and simple to vary the seeds, nuts and fruit. Great for breakfast with milk or yogurt.

Lovely recipe but you must note that the granola won't be crunchy as soon as it comes out of the oven, but it will be when it cools. I ended up leaving mine in for too long waiting for it to go crunchy :(

Made this for the 3rd time today, I just love it. Changed the nuts and fruit each time to keep it interesting. One small bowl of this and I am snack free till lunch.

This is dead easy and definately worth making, and best of all its delicious. Its sweet crunchy and yummy, its even nice eaten on its own as a snack. Ive tried a few granola recipes from but i gotta say this one is the best and the easiest to make. :)

Best granola recipe so far.

This granola has become a morning staple for us -- we've been making it weekly for a year now. We've simplified it & reduced the fat content by mixing together 450g of rolled oats, 2 Tbsp canola oil & 2 Tbsp honey, baked at 190C for about 12 mins. Just be sure to check on the granola about 6 mins into baking and give it a quick mix. We keep the cooled granola in a container & everyone adds their own toppings. Yumm!!!

I haven't tried this yet, but I eat granola every day with Greek yogurt and honey, so I'll try this instead of the shop bought stuff
