    Granola with roasted cherries

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus cooling
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes, plus cooling

    Serves: 6


    125g porridge oats
    50g whole almonds, roughly chopped
    2 tbsp LoveLife mixed seeds
    2 tbsp coconut (or sunflower) oil 
    4 tbsp maple syrup 
    360g cherries, pitted and halved 
    1-2 tbsp demerara sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with parchment. In a bowl mix together the oats, almonds and seeds. Heat the coconut oil, maple syrup and 2 tbsp water in a small saucepan. Pour over the oat mixture and stir well. Spread out in an even layer on the prepared tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring from time to time, until golden; set aside to cool.

    2. Meanwhile, toss the cherries, sugar and vanilla with a pinch of salt. Tip onto a baking tray and roast for 25-30 minutes, until tender and some of the inky juices have leaked out. Cool slightly before serving with the granola and Greek yogurt, if liked. (They’re also great warm with vanilla ice cream.) SF
