My Mum’s name is Carol and we are alike in many ways. We are both good sleepers and enjoy nothing more than a wee lie-in and a lazy breakfast, at our leisure, normally stretching way beyond lunchtime.
Granola is always a key munch at these indulgent occasions. We like it so much that Mum has started to make her own. Heres what Mum has to say:
“Hello cooking companions,
Blueberry and Cranberry Granola
225g Rolled Oats, 15g soft brown sugar, 45g Wheatgerm, 2 tbsp Maple syrup (or Honey), 55g Millet flakes, 2 tbsp sunflower oil, 1 tbsp Sesame seeds, 2 tbsp orange juice, 2 tbsp Sunflower seeds, 2 tbsp flaked Almonds, 50g dried Blue berries, 50g dried Cranberries, 10 bashed up Brazil Nuts (if you’re feeling flush!)
A delicious toasted Muesli, this is made from a tempting mix of grains, nuts, seeds and colourful red and blue berries.
Stirring Maple syrup and Orange juice into the mix helps to keep the oil content down making this version much lower in fat than most ready made Crunchy cereals.
Pre heat 160c – 325f gas 3
1 – In a large bowl mix together Oats, Wheatgerm, Millet flakes, Sesame and Sunflower seeds Almonds, Dried Berries and sugar. Stir until mixed well.
2 – Put the Maple syrup, Orange juice, and oil in a small jug and mix together. Pour this mixture slowly into dry ingredients stirring to ensure that the liquid is evenly distributed.
3 – Spread mixture evenly over a non – stick roasting pan. Bake for 30 = 40 mins until golden brown.
4 – Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Store in a air tight container for up to two weeks.

Lots of good thoughts coming your way
