Liz’s rose petal granola recipe

Makes enough to fill a large glass jar

Making granola at home is an easy and cost-efficient way to ensure you always have a delicious breakfast to hand. Liz’s rose petal granola recipe is a surefire way to brighten up your morning. This colourful bowlful looks as good as it tastes!

With as much as 25g of sugar per 100g, shop-bought granola can also be high in saturated fat and salt. Making your own at home is an easy way to ensure you’re eating healthier and more natural ingredients.

Hazelnuts and pecans are both high in nutritious essential fats, while the rolled oats are ideal for keeping cholesterol balanced. If you’re prone to reaching for the sugar to sprinkle over your breakfast, the raisins and cranberries add a natural pop of sweeetness instead.

Enjoy this granola recipe with organic milk splashed over the top. Liz loves to source her milk from a local milk vending machine. These local initiatives decrease food miles and cut down on the carbon footprint of your milk, while also providing a way to use less plastic. Find out more about milk vending machines here.
