If you haven’t done so do read our blog on Foods You Should Eat For Menopause. This granola is delicious and nutritious for all the family to enjoy but it contains so many of the nutrients which can help to reduce menopause symptoms, especially if you have it with yogurt (dairy or soya) and dark berries.
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Juice of 1 orange
125ml maple syrup
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp chopped ginger in syrup
300g rolled oats
150g of our Lightly Toasted Three Seed Mix
100g cashew nuts
100g mixed raisins and currants
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinammon
Heat the oven to 130C fan / gas 2. Mix the oil, maple syrup, honey, orange juice, ground ginger and cinammon in a bowl. Tip in all the remaining ingredients except the currants and chopped ginger then mix well. Stand the well mixed bowlful for 5 minutes.
Tip the granola onto a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes then stir in the currants and chopped ginger, bake for 10-15 minutes more until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.
Once cooled transfer to an airtight container. It can be stored this way for up to a month, but we think it won’t last that long!
