Makes about 500g

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup macadamias, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pepitas [shelled preferred]
  • Pinch salt
  • Leaves of 1-2 small sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 4 tbs ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey
  • 1/4 cup moist, dried currants

Method

Pre-heat oven to 160c/320F.

Mix oats, macadamias, sesame seeds, pepitas, thyme leaves and salt in a large bowl. Melt coconut oil and fold in Arden HILLS GOLD Honey in a small saucepan or in the microwave and stir in dry ingredients.  Be sure not to caramelize the honey.

Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Stir the granola half way through to ensure even toasting.

Remove from the oven and stir in the currants. Leave to cool then store in an airtight container.

Serving suggestion

Serve the granola with Greek yogurt, milk and smashed mixed berries . Accompany with a slice of toasted brioche or a french croissant , slathered with fresh ricotta and drizzled with ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey. Fresh orange juice and strong coffee on the side.
