Coconut and Cranberry Granola! This is a really lovely easy recipe.

Here, I've chosen to add some hazelnuts, coconut, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds to the mixture. I think the combination is really delicious.

Of course, you can also swap out some of the ingredients for say, walnuts, pecans, raisins, dried apricots. At least that way, if you are making this as a regular breakfast in your house, you can swap and change each time you make a batch so it's always like new for you!

In the photos, I actually decided I would make up a couple of jars to give as gifts over Christmas time. I bought some large Mason Jars from my local shop and simply gave them a good wash in the dishwasher, then layered the ingredients EXCEPT the honey and oil.

Closed it and added a tag on the jar with some simple instructions for the recipe. My friends really loved their gifts so that made me very happy!
