Granola & Rhubarb Compote

Granola & Rhubarb Compote

In case you didn’t know, I’m a lazy cook! I like recipes that are quick and easy and this recipe for granola and compote is exactly that. 

Trust me, this granola is easy to make and even easier to snack on all day! The bonus is that it is healthy too. You can swap ingredients in and out depending on what you already have available. 

Granola with yoghurt and compote is one of my favourite snack and breakfast options so I’ve added in a compote recipe. Compote is another easy recipe and you can swap ingredients to make it exactly how you’d like it and it’s a great way to use up old fruit too. I’ve added a little honey to sweeten the recipe but feel free to add more or none at all.
