Gluten Free Breakfast Series Recipe No. 1 - Pecan Apple Cinnamon Granola

I have discovered once you've made your own granola, you can't go back. You can't go back to the shop bought stuff, its never going to taste as good. Not only does this taste amazing, its got great texture and keeps you going for ages (slow release energy!!) and its easy to make, AND its sugar and gluten free and vegan win, win, win. Another win... its easy to adapt to your favourite flavours, but for me you can't beat pecans, and apples with cinnamon is a classic.
Amazing granola
The Ingredients
Makes 5 portions 

1 cup dried apple
3 cups of oats
2 tbsp flaxseed
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 cup chopped pecans
0.25 cup of honey*
0.25 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp of cinnamon 

*if a strict vegan use maple or agave syrup instead.

The Method
Preheat oven to 180C (fan).

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Pour the honey and olive oil.

Mix everything together again. 

Line a baking tray with parchment.

Spread the the granola out evenly over the baking tray. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes. 

Toss every 5 minutes. 

Try not to eat all at once :)
