Tropical Fruit and Nut Granola

Homemade granola is so easy to make that you will probably never buy shop bought one again! Okay, big words, but I certainly have been enjoying my batch of homemade granola. You can easily adapt the nuts & dried fruit in the below recipe to your taste. I used dried papaya and pineapple, along with cashews and hazelnuts. This is my play on the BBC Good Food recipe and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
