Honey-Baked Granola

img

By Darren Purchese

This recipe was one of the most requested by visitors to B&P. We sold and ate, so of much honey-baked granola in our twelve fabulous years in our shop, and it's still one of our favourite breakfast choices. It's healthy and not too sweet with the perfect balance of ingredients to get your day off to a great start. We like to eat it with fruit salad, poached fruit or roasted strawberries (as pictured) and always with yoghurt.

If you find the idea of making your own granola daunting due to the long list of ingredients, we have the perfect solution for you. Our approach is simple and efficient: we source our ingredients from one of our favourites, The Source Bulk Food Store in Prahran and purchase only the precise amounts required for the recipe. By weighing out the ingredients right in the store, we avoid having leftover items cluttering up our cupboards and going stale.

And don't worry if you can't find all the ingredients; feel free to make substitutions based on what's available and what you prefer. Vegans, we've got you covered too! Swap out honey for maple syrup and butter for vegan butter to cater to your dietary preferences. It's really so rewarding making your granola, tailored to your taste, without any stress or waste!
