My slightly addictive skin loving breakfast…
Granted if you have a nut allergy I apologise in advance as this isn’t going to be a great recipe for you.
This granola is my go to breakfast! Sure I love eggs & smoked salmon but this is the main stay of my weekday breakfast & we make at least one batch a week.
My husband is constantly amused at how much I heap into my bowl followed by ‘Are we nearly out of that again?!’ So I only hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Oh & see my notes at the bottom as to why this is also amazing for skin health too!

Spread out onto a non stick baking tray (I line mine with parchment paper for ease of removal afterwards) & then bake for 15 mins on 180 degrees. Gently stir half way through & check the nuts aren’t burning.
