Cinnamon, Seed and Nut Granola

img_3015
Granola is my go to breakfast. I make a jar every other week. Depending on what I have at home, the granola turns out differently each time. I have made this batch with a generous helping of cinnamon, as this adds a great flavour, and chopped almond. I pack my granola full of seeds and nuts but you could also add some dried fruit. Remember that if you are adding dried fruit, mix this in and bake in the oven for the last 5 or 10 minutes or you end up with burned crunchy bits in your breakfast bowl.
I normally eat the granola with some natural yoghurt and add some fresh berries or fruit depending on what’s in season. Raspberries, blueberries, grated apple…… the chose it yours.
Enjoy!
