This is a tasty, crunchy granola that makes a great breakfast dish when served with compote, yogurt and fresh fruit.
Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas mark 6. Place the rolled oats, nuts and seeds in one bowl. In another bowl whisk together the maple syrup, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Pour the maple syrup mix over the oats, nuts and seeds and mix together with your hands making sure the oats are well covered with the maple syrup. Spread the oats, nuts and seed mixture on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Half way through the cooking time open the oven door and stir the granola and check it is not scorching in one place. Continue cooking the granola until it just turning golden brown.
For the compote: rinse the strawberries, remove the green calyx and roughly chop them. Place the strawberries in a saucepan with the sugar, water and lemon juice and cook gently for 10 minutes. They should be soft and well cooked. Allow to the strawberries to cool. Taste and adjust the seasoning with a touch of lemon juice.
To assemble the granola pots: place a tablespoon of strawberry compote in the bottom of a glass serving dish, followed by a sprinkling of granola and top with lactose free yogurt and a selection of chopped fruit i.e. blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi.
To serve: lactose free yogurt; 100g mixed fruit e.g. blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and kiwi fruit.
NB A serving of this contains 23g serving of oats which is low in FODMAPs and should be tolerated by most people.
