Granola but make it festive!




320g Cooking apples peeled, cored and finely diced
4 tbsp Water
1/4 tsp Mixed spice
1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp Ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Orange peel powder
3/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Vanilla extract
Zest of 1 orange
4 tbsp Rapeseed or olive oil
120g Runny honey
100g Pecan nuts roughly chopped


Place the apples in a small saucepan with the water. Bring to a simmer and cook, with a lid on, stirring occasionally, until the apples are completely collapsed and pureed. Leave to cool with the lid on.

When cool, put the apple puree in a large mixing bowl. Add the spices, orange peel powder, salt, vanilla extract, orange zest, oil and honey and whisk well to make a thick, glossy puree.

Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Combine the muesli base mix with the spiced apple puree and mix well with a wooden spoon until totally combined and moist. Spread the mixture out over two large baking sheets, as evenly as possible.

Bake for 10 minutes, then take the trays out of the oven and stir each well to distribute the granola evenly over the trays (this helps it brown evenly). Bake for another 10 minutes, then stir again, then another 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir again. Scatter the pecans and pumpkin seeds across the two trays of granola, and bake for a final 10 minutes (so, 40 minutes in total, stirring at 10-minute intervals, with the nuts and seeds added for the final 10 minutes).

Remove and leave to cool before adding the cranberries. Store in an airtight jar and enjoy!
