Method

  1. Put 200g oats and 500ml water in a food processor and blitz for 1 min. Line a sieve with clean muslin and pour in the oat mixture. Leave to drip through for 5 mins, then twist the ends of the muslin and squeeze well to capture as much of the oat milk as possible – it should be the consistency of single cream. Best chilled at least 1 hr before serving. Can be kept in a sealed or covered jug in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Put the orange juice in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Boil rapidly for 5 mins or until the liquid has reduced by half, stirring occasionally. Mix the remaining 200g oats with the orange zest and cinnamon. Remove the pan from the heat and stir the oat mixture into the juice. Spread over the lined tray in a thin layer and bake for 10-15 mins or until lightly browned and crisp, turning the oats every few mins. Leave to cool on the tray.

  3. Once cool, mix the oats with the raspberries, flaked almonds and seeds. Can be kept in a sealed jar for up to one week. To serve, spoon the granola into bowls, pour over the oat milk and top with the orange segments and mint leaves, if you like.

I found this recipe fantastic. I make it all the time and my mouth is watering as I write about it. I couldn't abide porridge and I never found a muesli or granola in the shops that I like unless it has loads of sugar in it. I can't believe there's no sugar in this recipe because it tastes sweet which is why I like it so much. So easy and quick to make and fun too. I can't get freeze dried fruit so I don't include it but I eat the granola with fresh raspberries and oranges. I also add a few chopped mixed nuts to the recipe. Love it.

I like it little bit, it's more helpful than test.

Although I quite like this, it was a lot of messing around to make it. Also I don't think it was quite dry enough when I put it in the oven and I had a rather glue type mixture which took much longer to dry and crisp up. In fact it never became very crispy. I think for all the messing around it is just as easy to make some porridge and put the other ingredients in. A little disappointed overall.

Very bland and a real chore to chew through. Healthy but uninspiring.

I was actually very surprised with the final result. It haven't turned out bad at all. I only had to leave it in the oven for a longer time than the recipe called for to make sure it's more crispy than chewy. However, the granola just with the oat millk tastes rather plain, so I just poured some maple syrup over it and it turned out to be really good.
