Nectarine & Apple Granola Square

Rise & Shine it's breakfast time!
It's an early one on the blog today for all you breakfast lovers or for those of you with a sweet tooth.
I am always looking for something new to make for breakfast to satisfy my morning hunger and this little dish of sweetness certainly ticks all the boxes. The sweet, soft and crisp granola base with chewy nuggets of dried fruits dotted throughout is the perfect accompaniment for the nectarine compote, nectarine slices and the apple matchsticks. The different textures just work so well together.

What you will need:

-1 Pink Lady Apple
-Honey / Agave Nectar
- 1Tsp Vanilla Flavouring
-Gluten Free Oats
-Dried Fruits (Any - I used 2 pitted medjool dates & some golden berries in this case but any dried fruit would work and taste just as good)
-1Tbsp Sunflower Oil

How to make:
Pre-Heat your oven to 180 fan.
Fill a small mixing bowl with some oats, flaxseed, the vanilla flavouring, the sunflower oil and a big squeeze of honey and give it a good mix making sure all the ingredients have combined. Pop the mixture onto a baking tray and place in the oven for about 10-12 minutes, keep an eye on it - you don't want any burnt bits. Whilst your granola is baking, chop the dried fruit into small chunks so it is ready to mix with the granola once it is out the oven. Whilst the granola is baking, place some chopped up nectarine in a saucepan with about 1cm of water and simmer on a low heat until the fruit has completely softened. Then, with a hand-held blender (or other) blitz up the fruit until you have a smooth compote. Chop up some nectarine and some apple and you're good to go. Place in a bowl or serve as shown in the picture - all tastes the same!

Hope you enjoy this recipe of mine and I hope you have a lovely day.
