  1. This is awesome! Once James realized that granola is not some magical-tasty nut which makes all breakfasts awesome he’s been bugging me to make him the granola recipe out of the Ottolenghi book but I’ve never gotten around to it …. but seeing this has definitely motivated me to give it a go!

    • We’re huge Ottolenghi fans! love his art 🙂 Please share a recipe if you post one. A friend has recommended that we use sea salt to contrast the sweetness in the honey, and bring out the other flavours. We’re definitely going to give it a go, and we’ll post a “Caveman Granola 2.0” if it’s good enough to go online 🙂
