About the recipe
This is a great crunchy breakfast treat or takeaway snack that is perfect for active days. The recipe delivers a combination of sustained energy from the toasted oats and plenty of nutrients from the fruit.

Plums, pears and apples have a low glycemic index rating, meaning that they release energy slowly and keep blood sugar stable. They are also all high in fibre, making you feel full. Almonds are packed with protein to help grow and repair your muscles, which means that your body is burning more calories every minute of the day.

How to cook?
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas mark 4. To make the granola, heat the coconut oil in a medium wok or pan, then add the honey, tip in the oats and cinnamon and stir to coat well. Once combined, transfer to a baking tray, spreading it out evenly, and bake for 20 minutes, turning the mixture halfway through, until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once cooled, you can store the granola in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
  2. To serve with the fruits, place the fruits in a small bowl and sprinkle with 2–3 tablespoons of the home- made granola and the almonds, then pour in the almond milk and eat immediately.
