This is a simply delicious breakfast recipe and one of my favourites!

It will set you up nicely for the day or alternatively can be consumed as a dessert depending on your taste. It is made with oats and various nuts and seeds which allows you to use the nuts of your choice. I used almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.

Oats are high in fibre helping your digestive health, and help you to release energy slowly throughout the day curbing those cravings and aiding in weight loss. Apricot kernels contains vitamin B17 and vitamin E making it high in anti-oxidants and increasing immunity levels. Chia seeds and sunflower seeds are packed with nutrients promoting immunity and digestive health. Almonds are rich in fiber and protein and are cholestrol free. The cinnamon and apple juice compliment each other in taste and help to warm the belly on those colder mornings. The dried cranberries and black currants not only add a great flavour to the crunchy nutty texture but are also full of nutrients and anti-oxidants. The great thing about granola is that you can eat it alone as a snack, or mix it with natural yogurt and fruit or pour it on top of your oatmeal as part of your breakfast.
