  • 225 g demerara sugar
  • 135 g honey
  • 180 g butter
  • 300 g porridge oats
  • 225 g dessicated coconut
  • 200 g pecan halves
  • 150 g flaked almonds
  • 100 g pistachios
  • 150 g hazelnuts
  • 150 g brazil nuts
  • 100 g sunflower seeds
  • 100 g pumpkin seeds
  • zest one orange


  1. In a large pan, measure out the demerara sugar, honey and butter.

  2. Place on a low heat and stir until all the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool to a warm temperature.

  3. Put all of the other ingredients into a large bowl and mix until they are all evenly distributed.

  4. Pour over the warm syrup mixture and mix thoroughly until everything is evenly coated.

  5. Spread the mixture thinly onto a baking tray and bake gently at 150oC for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like it.

  6. Serve with cold milk or yogurt. It can be stored in an air tight container for up to a month – if it lasts that long.

Recipe Notes

Mr and Mrs 50 Plus love The Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall.  It's not cheap to go there but it really is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. IT's worth every penny and we think that once you've been there you'll think like us too. 

Their granola tastes fantastic!   But it's the view over the sea from their restaurant when you're eating it, which makes the granola the best breakfast we've ever had!!
