Today I have a super healthy breakfast recipe for you!
It’s an easy homemade cereal recipe! I know you might be thinking, why would I want to make cereal at home?? What is the job of brands like Kellogg’s then??
Welllll, we’re taking control of what we put in our bodies, even cereal!
This is a granola recipe with no added sugar or fat, but lots of natural sugars and fat from fruits and nuts. It’s great because you can tailor it towards how you’re feeling in the morning i.e. if it’s one of those mornings, you’re free to pour on the honey, but if you wake up feeling glorious, then you can start the day glorious as well! You might then be thinking, but I’m not going to be making my cereal from scratch each morning Moyo! & I’m not asking you to, this can be made up to three weeks in advance, so have fun batch baking this lovely!
Also, if you don’t have an oven, you can make this in a frying pan at medium heat- just make sure you stir it from time to time, but it would probably take a bit longer to get to the crunchy texture we’re looking for! I’ve making regular granola this way and it turned out okay. This is also one of those recipes that you can add just about anything to!
So go wild😊💕 & Enjoy!!
Note: you would need a lot more milk or yogurt than you think!

Yield: 5 portions
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-25 minutes
Cooling Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes
Cooking Temperature: 180C or gas mark 4 or 350F
200g oats- whichever kind you prefer would work well!
100g nuts, I used:
50g groundnuts/ roasted peanuts
50g roasted cashews (apparently the raw kind is better for you, so go for it if you would prefer. )
You can use whatever kind of nuts you like, for example, walnuts, macadamias, pistachios and so on!
(50g Dried fruits e.g. apricots, raisins, currants, etc. if you like dried fruits, I think dried apricots go nicely in this recipe)
1/2 tbsp ground coffee (I’m not sure that freeze dried coffee would work in this recipe)
(1/2 tbsp cocoa powder if you want a chocolatey twist)
1/2 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg or both
1. Preheat your oven to 180C, gas mark 4 or 350F.
2. Chop your nuts and dried fruit beforehand if you want them to be more evenly distributed (you could also put your nuts in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin to release some of that pent up anger! 😊)
3. Pour everything into a bowl and mix, mix, mix!
4. Spread the mixture on a baking tin, ensuring that the nuts and fruit are covered with oats to prevent them from cooking too quickly.
5. Bake for 15-25minutes. (Check after 10 minutes and mix to ensure even cooking).
6. Cool for 10 Minutes
7. Serve! With lots of milk, or yogurt, or fruit purée, or even with porridge or as a yogurt topper!
8. Enjoyyy!! Happy Cooking❤️.
