    I made this and absolutely love it! Perhaps a bit too much as I find it difficult to keep to a 35g portion with some greek yoghurt and a few raspberries but it’s very filling.

    Really enjoyed this recipe. Easy to make and adaptable if you haven’t got the exact type of nuts. I also loved the orange zest flavour and thought it might fade on baking in the oven but it actually improved it. Next time I will add more for even more flavour.

    Easy to make and super tasty. I have made this granola a few times and mix in whatever ingredients I have. Agree with other comment about orange zest, it adds a great flavour.

    Love this! What a great recipe. Have really missed granola and this is perfect. I tweaked it a bit as you do as didn’t have apricots

    I love this recipe. I have made 4 batches of it over the past 4 months. Its become one of my staple go to foods. Quick and easy for a breakfast before work. And easily adapted, I add a little ginger and you can easily adapt the nuts or berries to what is in your cupboard
