This is a recipe from Jamie Oliver's new book Everyday Super Food. It's easy, healthy and delicious. All you do is lightly toast some oats, nuts and seeds until they smell gorgeous. Chuck in some lovely dried fruit, cocoa and coffee. Bung it all in a processor, smash it to bits and you've got breakfast sorted for days. I've read the book from cover to cover. I think I'm starting to sound like him.

Makes 16 portions
For the Granola Dust:
500g traditional porridge oats
125g mixed nuts (I used hazelnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, natural almonds, macadamias, pecans and pistachios)
50g mixed seeds (I used pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, white chia and sesame seeds)
125g mixed dried fruit (I used mango, blueberries, currants, apricots and cranberries)
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon fresh, finely ground coffee beans
Zest of 1 orange
Honey (I used chestnut honey)
Fruit (I used fresh strawberries and blueberries)
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Mix the oats, nuts and seeds together in a bowl, then spread them out on a large baking tray. Toast in the oven for about 20 minutes, stirring once. Take the tray out of the oven and add the dried fruit, cocoa powder, ground coffee and the orange zest.
Blitz the mixture in batches in a food processor until finely ground. Keep in an airtight container.
Measure out 50g of granola dust per person. Serve with yoghurt, honey and fruit.
