Jane Fonda’s Granola

I made a batch of this to kick off my month of living like Jane Fonda – more about this coming soon….  It produced 2 x 1 litre Kilner jars of granola so lucky Mr Rathbone got one for scoffing on his holiday, and I kept one for myself.

Now, this is not a CRUNCHY granola, it’s kinda chewy so if you make this, I would recommend soaking the granola in whatever kind of milk you choose, for about an hour before you eat it.  Alternatively, you could maybe soak it in fruit juice.  Mr R does NOT recommend soaking it overnight…  Overnight oats this is not…

Minimalist Baker’s Peanut Butter Overnight Oats – these are utterly divine!

Here’s Jane telling us why we should never skip breakfast.  To be honest, I NEVER skip breakfast, just like La Fonda, I believe it is the most important meal of the day…

But Jane has a much bigger appetite than me it seems.  She recommends a portion of 185 grams of granola for breakfast, that is heaps man!  I am having half that amount and it’s perfect for me.  I eat like a bird don’tcha know…

Thanks Jane, I’m not planning to skip a single breakfast during Jane Fonda month…

Granola!  Yay!

Jane Fonda’s Granola


  • 90g raisins
  • 60g dried prunes, chopped
  • 60g dried apricots, chopped
  • 60g dried apples, chopped
  • 270g rolled oats
  • 125g unsweetened puffed rice cereal (I used puffed spelt)
  • 60g raw sunflower seeds

  • 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 130 degrees C / 250 degrees F / Gas 1/2
  2. In a small bowl, soak the raisins and dried fruit in the hot water until softened, 15 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the oats, rice cereal, sunflower seeds, almonds, dry milk, coconut, honey and cinnamon. Add the raisins and fruit with the soaking water. Stir to mix well.
  3. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to prevent sticking and to ensure even baking. Remove from the oven and cool.
  4. To store, place in an airtight container for up to one week.
