    100g flame raisins
    250g jumbo oats
    100g whole skin-on almonds, roughly chopped

    1. Preheat the oven to 170˚C, gas mark 3; line a large baking tray with parchment. Soak the raisins in a bowl of just-boiled water. In another bowl, mix together the oats, nuts, seeds and desiccated coconut.

    3. Spread out in an even layer over the parchment. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and continue to cook, stirring every 10 minutes until golden and fragrant – about 45 minutes in total. Set aside to cool completely. Store in an airtight jar for up to 4 weeks, and serve with yogurt and fruit.
