Coconut and Pecan Granola

I love granola so much…but I must spend a small fortune on it each month as I top up with all my favourites. It it so easy to make your own, not to mention cheaper, that is just as tasty as the shop bought ones and you know exactly what ingredients you are putting into it. As well as this, you can tailor it to your specific taste buds. Don’t like nuts? Love raisins? Hate the seeds they add in? Making your own removes this constant fear of chowing down on an unexpected almond whilst trying to enjoy your breakfast.

Granola is not only one of my favourite breakfast options but it is also my go to snack with greek yoghurt and some berries! Heaven in a bowl in my opinion.
