A crispy and crunchy granola full of puffed rice, oats, nuts and seeds, all inspired by Gordon Ramsay himself.

Granola by Gordon (800x600)

I recently borrowed a cookbook by Gordon Ramsay from the library (oh, how great it is to be able to borrow books again … in English, but that’s off-topic).  The very first recipe in it was granola, with oats, puffed rice and a whole pile of nuts, seeds and dried fruit.  Both Grant and I looked at it and thought ‘yep, I’d eat that’.  I was interested in trying it as it didn’t have any butter – just honey to bind it all together.  So I followed the recipe and made it – and liked the final product so much that I wanted to include it here.  So, this isn’t my recipe – all credit goes to the great Gordon Ramsay – but it is extremely yummy!

And, as with all granola recipes that I’ve seen and tried, substitutions can be made all over the place – with the nuts, seeds and dried fruit, whatever you have in your cupboard will work well.
