  1. 1

    Pre-heat oven at 190°C/fan 170°C/gas mark 5. Tear apart the hot cross buns into small chunks onto a baking sheet and pour over the melted butter and sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, giving a shake up half way through. 

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, mix together the honey, oil and vanilla.  Add the orange zest, seeds, nuts, oats, and cinnamon. Mix well so everything is evenly coated. 

  3. 3

    Once the hot cross bun pieces are toasted, remove the tray from the oven and add the honey mixture to the tray.

  4. 4

    Pack the whole mixture tightly into the tray. Place the baking sheet back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, baking until it looks and smells slightly toasted.

  5. 5

    Once out of the oven, leave to cool then use a spatula to break apart the granola, leaving the pieces as big or small as you would like. Now you can add the fruit to your mix.

  6. 6

    Store the granola in an air tight container. It should last up to a month.
