Ingredients

  • 50g (about 7) soft ready-to-eat dried apricots (we used Crazy Jack organic, because they are sulphur-free)
  • ½ tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 3 large eggs, whites only (see tip to use up the yolks)
  • 200g porridge oats
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 25g desiccated coconut
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 25g pumpkin seeds
  • 3 x 120g pots bio yogurt
  • 3 peaches, to serve

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4 and line a large baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Tip the apricots, oil and egg whites into a bowl (see tip box for how to use up the egg yolks), then blitz with a hand blender until very smooth. Stir in the oats, cinnamon and vanilla, then fold through the desiccated coconut, almonds and pumpkin seeds.
  3. Pinch clusters of the mixture together to create texture in the granola, then scatter over the lined baking tray in a single layer. Bake for 15 mins, then toss (turning the larger pieces) and bake for a further 10 mins until golden and crunchy.
  4. Cool the granola completely on the tray, then pack into a large airtight jar or container. If you're saving two portions, serve two portions over three days, filling the base of each bowl with yogurt (½ pot for each portion) and topping with half a peach, sliced.

Sugar 12.0g
Fibre 10.3g
Protein 11.3g
Salt 0.14g

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp cold pressed rapeseed oil, plus a little for the ramekins
  • 50ml milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160g plain wholemeal spelt flour
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 25g oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 x 120g pots bio Greek yogurt
  • 400g strawberries, hulled and sliced

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 and line the base of 4 x 185ml ramekins with a disc of baking parchment and oil the sides with the rapeseed oil. Measure the milk in a jug and make up to 300ml with water. Stir in the lemon juice, vanilla and the 2 tsp oil. Mix the flour, seeds and oats then blitz in a food processor to make the mix as fine as you can. Stir in the baking powder.
  2. Pour in the liquid, then stir in with the blade of a knife until you have a very wet batter like dough. Spoon evenly into the ramekins then bake on a baking sheet for 20 mins until risen – they don’t have to be golden but should feel firm. Cool for a few mins then run a knife round the inside of the ramekins to loosen the scones then carefully ease out.
  3. The scones can be eaten immediately or cooled and stored for later.
