A mix of grains, fruit and nuts — that's what granola is all about. If you want to make it at home, it's ridiculously simple and can be done for a fraction of the price of store-bought versions. Apart from that, you can add whatever you want in it. If you don't like raisins, toss them out. Add a large amount of macadamia nuts if they're your guilty pleasure. Granola can liven up your day and provide plenty of nourishment to fuel you through it, whether it's in between Zoom calls or just to fulfil that mid-day craving.
To make the job of rustling up granola at home easier, fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala has shared the recipe of rich dark chocolate granola on Instagram. She called it one of her favourite granola recipes.

4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup mixed berries
1/3 cup 100 per cent cocoa powder
