  1. Preheat the oven to gas 2, 150°C, fan 130°C. In a mug, use a fork to whisk the coffee granules and cocoa with 2 tbsp boiling water. Stir in the oil, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Mix the oats and ground almonds in a bowl, then stir in the coffee mix with a fork – it should clump together a little. Spread evenly on a baking tray and bake on a low oven shelf for 20 mins. Stir, then bake for 5 mins.
  3. Stir in the seeds, cranberries and blanched almonds (if using); bake for 5-10 mins until crisp around the edges.
  4. Scrape the baked granola onto another tray, lined with nonstick baking paper, to cool. It can be stored for up to a month in an airtight container. Serve with yogurt and sliced banana, if you like.

Tip: Swap blanched almonds for Tesco Finest luxury coffee and Belgian dark chocolate almonds. Stir through the baked granola just before serving.
