  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Line a medium baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Pour the oil, syrup and orange zest into a large bowl and mix together. Add the oats, almonds, seeds, cinnamon and dried apricots and toss until combined and coated in the syrup.

  3. Pile into the baking tray and press down gently with the back of a spoon – you want to pack the tray quite tightly so that it sticks together – this will help make it more “granola” like.

  4. Place in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown and just crispy.

  5. Leave to cool totally before breaking up into pieces. Store in an airtight container if not using straightaway.

  6. Divide between serving bowls and top with a dollop of yoghurt and some mixed berries.
