Crunchy granola with berries & cherries

Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Marathon

4 - 8

Prep time

10 mins


  • Sunflower Oil: 125ml sunflower oil
  • Honey: 100ml runny honey (try one of the lightly flavoured flower ones)
  • Oats: 450g rolled oats
  • Mixed Nut: 175g mixed nuts (pecan halves and peanuts in their red skins)
  • Sunflower Seed: 50g sunflower seeds
  • Sesame: 50g sesame seeds
  • Cherry: half a 170g packet dried berries and cherry


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5/fan oven 170C. Halve some of the pecans, leave some whole. Mix with peanuts, oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. In a jug, measure the oil and pour into the mixture, then measure the honey - it will slide out easily. Stir together with a fork to break up any big clumps of oats.
  2. Pour on to a large baking tray with sides, preferably non-stick, in a thin layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring well at least twice and bringing the mixture in from the edges, until it is golden. Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool.
  3. Mix in the berries and cherries and serve with plenty of chilled milk.
  4. Store for up to 1 month in airtight container.
