I am ill with a cold, but luckily haven’t had any time off work ill since the end of February. I’ll take small victories where I can.
I generally have stomach issues, colds I get about once a year, so hopefully this is all I will have to put up with in 2018.
I have had trouble sleeping because The Boy has been away on a stag do and as soppy and as silly as it sounds I can’t get to sleep easily without him there. And being ill with a cold always gives me insomnia, so when I woke up at 4:50am this morning I knew attempting to get back to sleep would be futile, so I got up, watched some of the Commonwealth Games, and made Granola.
70g Flaked Almonds
70g Pecans, chopped into small pieces
2 tsp Cinnamon
140g Dried Apricots, chopped into small pieces
60ml Rapeseed Oil
Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and then add the honey and oil.
Mix together and spread out across two baking trays as thinly as you can.
Bake in an oven at Gas Mark 4 for about 30 minutes, mixing half way through (I also like to swap the trays around the shelves)
I think this is my best granola recipe yet.
