Homemade Nut Filled Granola

Hi guys,

So a few of you lovelies have been asking for the recipe for this yummy crunchy nut filled granola! I have finally managed to take some pics for you and rather than just whacking everything into a bowl I have also done some measuring, albeit loosely! So hopefully this recipe is now super easy…

The beauty of this though is that you can add or take away the bits you don’t like. We’re not a massive raisin fan in this household…yep there i said it! I think actually Alfie is the only one who likes them so I don’t tend to use them for this recipe but they could easily be added if you and your little ones prefer!

So first of all grab youself a big bowl and start by adding  your oats:
