This granola recipe is a comforting and delicious breakfast to cheer up your morning. Home-made granola is super quick and easy to make, and this recipe supercharges it with sunflower seeds and chia seeds to boost up the fibre, choline and calcium. It makes a simple, tasty and nutritious base for the yummy rhubarb and blood orange compote topping.
Rhubarb and blood orange make the most scrumptious combination; and reduced into a fruit compote together with Greek yoghurt is a perfect granola topping. An ideal compote for early to late spring, using seasonal forced rhubarb and blood oranges. Make it at other times of the year using standard juicy oranges.
