  • Nutrition Info.(per serve)

HFG tip

Granola keeps in an airtight container for about a month.

Serve granola with fresh fruit, some plain low-fat yoghurt and a splash of milk.

What we did

  • Changed to wholegrain oats to increase the fibre.
  • Halved the saturated fat by leaving out the coconut oil and not using too much coconut.


  • How much honey or agave, maple and rice syrups are used, as they are still sugars.
  • Your serving size – 50g is about a third of a cup.
  • Adding yoghurt, milk or a milk alternative increases energy, protein and fat. If using a milk alternative, choose one that’s calcium fortified and high in protein.
