Homemade granola.

550g of rolled oats
240g of chopped nuts (I like hazelnuts and almonds)
300g of dried fruit (I use dried apricots, bananas and/or cranberries)
100ml of sunflower oil
75g of dark brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons of honey – depending on taste
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
75g of wheat germ
100g of sunflower seeds

Pre-heat your oven to 170ºc. Mix all the ingredients (except the fruit and sunflower seeds) in a large bowl, spread the mixture onto two baking trays and bake for about thirty minutes or until everything is golden brown (you will have to toss the ingredients a few times during baking to ensure you get an even colour). Allow to cool and add the fruit and seeds. Store in an airtight container. The granola will keep for 2 weeks – if it lasts that long! I love this with some natural yoghurt and a little of my apricot preserve.
