Ingredients

  • 50g (about 7) soft ready-to-eat dried apricots (we used Crazy Jack organic, because they are sulphur-free)
  • ½ tbsp rapeseed oil
    Rapeseed oil

    Rapeseed oil

    If you want a light alternative to other cooking oils, rapeseed is a great choice and has…

  • 3 large eggs, whites only (see tip to use up the yolks)
  • 200g porridge oats
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
    Cinnamon

    Cinnamon

    sin-ah-mun

    A fragrant spice which comes from the inner bark of a tropical tree. When dried, it curls into…

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 25g desiccated coconut
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 25g pumpkin seeds
  • 3 x 120g pots bio yogurt
  • 3 peaches, to serve

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

  2. Tip the apricots, oil and egg whites into a bowl (see tip box for how to use up the egg yolks), then blitz with a hand blender until very smooth. Stir in the oats, cinnamon and vanilla, then fold through the desiccated coconut, almonds and pumpkin seeds.

  3. Pinch clusters of the mixture together to create texture in the granola, then scatter over the lined baking tray in a single layer. Bake for 15 mins, then toss (turning the larger pieces) and bake for a further 10 mins until golden and crunchy.

  4. Cool the granola completely on the tray, then pack into a large airtight jar or container. If you're following our Healthy Diet Plan, serve two portions over three days, filling the base of each bowl with yogurt (½ pot for each portion) and topping with half a peach, sliced.

I didn’t find this crunchy enough after the 25 minutes so I gave it 5 extra minutes then turned off the oven and let it cool down in there! Lovely and crunchy.

You need to scroll through the tips using the arrows for information on the egg yolks. In case you're unable to view this, here is the tip: "Don't throw away the egg yolks – freeze them for another day. You can use them in scrambled eggs, omelettes and to enrich mashed potatoes when you're not following the Healthy Diet Plan."

The method says to combine egg whites, oil and apricots..... but the list of ingredients does not include oil. So, what kind of oil and how much?

Thanks for pointing this out. The oil was left off the ingredients list. We have now added this and apologise for the omission.

The recipe instructions mention oil but it's not included in the ingredients. How much and what type of oil is meant to be used here?

Thanks for flagging this. We have now added the 1/2 tbsp rapeseed oil to the ingredients list. We apologise for missing this out.
