Flapjack Granola

At the start of every month, we make up a batch of this Flapjack Granola. Our granola is no fruit, all nuts, super easy and stores beautifully. It is the best granola recipe we have ever developed.

Hands down, this is our best granola recipe. It is like a huge flapjack crumbled up to be granola. Tate & Lyle’s Golden Syrup gives this granola a deep sweet moreish delightful taste. You can, however, substitute honey if you prefer.

Best Granola Recipe

We prefer homemade granola because we are definitely a ‘no fruit granola’ household. The closest we get to fruit and granola are these amazing Raspberry Oat Squares.

Our granola is just oats, nuts, spices and sweet stuff. We top fresh fruit with Greek yoghurt and a sprinkle of our best granola for a quick and easy breakfast.
