A Light Granola

A Light Granola

 

During the years we have tried many different granola recipes and were always surprised at how much oil was used. We have been on the hunt for a lighter version for a while now and stumbled across this recipe in the Margot Henderson cookbook 'You're All Invited'. Born Kiwi, Margot moved to the UK where she worked in some of the best restaurants in London and married Fergus Henderson (St Johns Restaurant). Margot is celebrated in her on right, being the brainchild of Rochelle Canteen in East London.

There is something particularly comforting about eating granola in winter. The toasted nuts, caramelised spices and sweet note of honey goes perfectly with stewed fruit and yoghurt. We have long since devoured our first batch, however will likely knock up another this weekend.
