Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.


Home made Granola is really simple to make and is much lower in sugar than most shop bought Granolas. Throw in whatever nuts, seeds and fruits you have in your cupboard – you could use raisins instead of the apricots and any combo of nuts – I happened to have pecans and flaked almonds. I would usually add Apple juice but I didn’t have any so I used the juice of a fresh orange and it worked really well. This recipe will make enough for 10-15 servings and will keep in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
