Walnut and Cherry Maple Granola

Nutty breakfast

Walnut and Cherry Maple Granola

I love dishes that you can throw together at a moment’s notice using only your store cupboard ingredients. Granola is one of the dishes that fits this bill nicely . In a matter of minutes, you can make a sweet and fuel busting breakfast. When your preferred  fruit or nut isn’t available you can alternate with different varieties. Here, I have used walnuts and dried cherries but blueberries and almonds also work well together.

A breakfast of granola,figs, Greek honey and yoghurt

I’ve served the granola here with fresh figs, yoghurt and Greek honey but I also take it with just a splash of cold milk.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serving Size: Serves 6 for Breakfast

A sweet, crunchy, nutty breakfast


  • 225g of porridge oats
  • 80g of dried cherries
  • 60g of walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 60ml of maple syrup
  • 50ml unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Mix oats and walnuts in a bowl together.
  3. Combine the maple syrup and melted butter in a saucepan. Bring to boil. Turn off heat.
  4. Put the oat mixture into the saucepan and ensure all the oats are coated with syrupy mixture. The ingredients should bind easily together. Add more maple syrup, if necessary
  5. Bake in the oven in a wide and shallow tray for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the dried cherries to the oat mixture and stir together. Bake until the mixture is golden and crisp, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes longer


Mix up the granola with different nuts and dried fruit.
