I get asked for this recipe a lot because I love to make it as a gift and give it to friends and family. I try to base the combinations on the time of year so that not only is it nutritious but also something I may be craving at the time or simply has a festive feel.
At Christmas for example I usually do a Christmas granola infused with dried oranges, ginger and cloves, walnuts perhaps and anything that feels like the season.
