Christmas granola

Ingredients
200 g Rolled oats

150 g Quinoa Flakes

40 g Pumpkin seeds

50 g Whole almonds

60 g Walnuts
100g Pistachios
40 g Brazil nuts

30 g Sunflower seeds

2½ tbsp Chia seeds

4 tbsp Shaved coconut

8 tbsp Runny honey

4 tbsp Coconut oil

zest of 1 orange
2tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp mixed spice
100g Goji berries
100g Cranberries

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 170C.
Put the coconut oil and runny honey in a small saucepan and heat gently until the oil has melted and the mix is homogeneous. Add the orange zest.
Mix all the dry ingredients, except the shaved coconut and dried fruit, with the liquid in a large mixing bowl.
Spread the mixture out on 2 baking tins lined with non-stick baking paper or a ceramic dish and put in the pre-heated oven.
Turn over the mixture about halfway through baking (after approx. 20 min), add the coconut shavings and re-distribute evenly again. Keep an eye on your muesli, you are looking for an evenly golden colour that may take about 20- 30 min.
When ready, let it cool down completely and then add the ground spices and dried fruit. Store in an airtight container for up to a month. Serve with Greek yogurt and fresh berries. It is also fantastic with almond milk.
