Honey and yoghurt is a really classic breakfast pair, but I sometimes find it a bit texturally bland. Especially in the morning when my tastebuds need waking up!
Fancy granola can get a bit expensive, especially when you plump for brands and ranges that have higher quality ingredients. Baking your own granola is fab as you know exactly what's going in it such as sugars and salts, as well as being able to tailor the recipe to your personal taste- I'm a huge fan of nutty combinations but not so hot on dried fruit so here is my almond and honey version.
2 cups/180g old fashioned/rolled oats
1 cup/85g flaked almonds
1/4 cup/60g salted butter
1/4 cup/80g honey
Pop everything together in a microwave safe dish and heat for a minute to melt the butter and soften the honey. Remove form the microwave and stir until everything is well coated.
Lay out on a baking sheet covered with greaseproof/waxed paper, then bake in a preheated oven at 320F for around 10 minutes. Check on the oats half way through as the sugar in the honey lends itself to burning and becoming bitter very quickly.
This recipe will keep in an air tight jar for about a month, ready for when ever you need a sprinkle on your yoghurt!
