How many times have you heard someone say 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day?'
It just happens to be true.
This Granola recipe by Ella (passed on to me by my Sister-in-Law, Lucy) has become an absolutely firm favourite in the Panacea household. Oats fill you up and the wonderful roasted coconut and maple syrup are complemented wonderfully by almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
Try it. It's devine. Yum.
