Chocolate, Hazelnut and Apricot Granola

Our family favourite and a perfect fruity, choc and nut combination for a delicious homemade granola. The chocolate, hazelnut and apricot granola is great to have on the go.

Ingredients

150g oats
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil
60g/handful of hazelnuts
70g/handful of dried apricots, chopped
50g dark chocolate drops or pieces chopped (dairy free if required)

Method

Preheat your oven to 180°C.
Roughly chop the hazelnuts and roast in the oven for 5 mins.
In a pan, add the rapeseed oil and honey, gently heat until the honey is melted. Add the oats, dried apricots and roasted hazelnuts mixing well until the dry ingredients are completely covered in the oil & honey.
Spread the granola mixture onto a large baking tray about 1cm deep. Scatter the chocolate pieces or drops over the granola, slightly stirring into the mixture, then level mixture in the tray but leave rough on top.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Leave to completely cool before crumbling up and then store in an airtight container.
