1/4 cup jumbo rolled oats (use gluten-free oats if you prefer)
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
5 pecan nuts, roughly broken into smaller pieces
1 tablespoon flaked almondsSeeds of 1/2 a pomegranate

Method:

  1. Start by making the granola. Mix the oats, cinnamon, pecans and flaked almonds and put them in one flat layer on an oven-proof dish. Drizzle the honey on top, trying to make sure that you do so evenly.
  2. Put the granola mixture under a grill on a medium heat, to gently toast the oats. It will take approximately 10 – 12 minutes to toast the oats, make sure that you shuffle them a couple of times during the cooking period, to make sure that they colour evenly. Once the granola is a golden colour, take it out from the grill and leave it to start cooling.
  3. Separate the seeds of the pomegranate.
  4. Once the granola has cooled for 15 minutes, layer the granola. Start with a yogurt base, them sprinkle the granola on top, and finally, scatter over the pomegranate seeds.
