I discovered this recipe years ago and it is unlike any granola I have tasted. It has a mild sweetness and the citrus flavour pairs nicely with yogurt. Make the recipe your own by adding your favourite seeds, nuts and dried fruit.


4 cups rolled oats

1 cup chopped nuts

1/2 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup honey

juice and rind of one orange

juice and rind of one lemon

1/2 cup chopped dried fruit


Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). In a large bowl mix the oats, nuts, seeds and cinnamon. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the honey with the brown sugar. When melted, stir in the juice and rind. Pour over the oat mixture and stir to coat. Transfer the mixture to a lightly greased large roasting pan and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container. Makes 6 cups.
