Homemade Granola
A great granola can brighten up any morning, and the perk of a homemade version is you get in include your favourite flavours. This recipe sees you combine your selection of nuts, seeds, oats and chia seeds with a deliciously sweet concoction of apple juice, honey and butter and bake until dreamily golden.

3 tbsp chia seeds

Yoghurt and dried berries, if desired



  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C fan forced).
