Coconut Cinnamon Granola

Granola is one of the simplest recipes you can make, it takes no time at all and is great to make on a Sunday night ready for the week ahead. There are so many ways to use granola such as adding it as a topping to yoghurt, chia puddings or smoothies, soaking it to make a bircher muesli, or simply adding your choice of milk and topping it with berries for a quick and easy breakfast.
