Hazelnut & Date Granola

June 24 2021
« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week's new recipe is a hazelnut and date granola. It's perfectly spiced, has a touch of sweetness, and a delicious texture.

I’ve packed it full of seeds, coconut, oats, along with the hazelnuts and Medjool dates. If you're not a fan of hazelnuts you could swap them out for walnuts, almonds, or macadamias. 

This granola is perfect served with poached pears or your favourite poached or fresh fruit and yoghurt. I also have a delicious poached pear recipe here on the website that will 'pair' perfectly with this.

You can store the granola in an airtight container in the pantry for a few months.

Enjoy the recipe and please let me know if you have any questions.
