Homemade Granola

Instead of buying supermarket granola (which can sometimes be quite high in added sugar!), I like to make my own - it's a lot easier than you might think, and you can use whatever nuts and seeds you happen to have on hand. If you like you can also add in a little chopped dried fruit - just make sure you do this after baking the rest of the mixture, as the sugar in the fruit means it tends to burn easily.

You'll Need:

1 cup whole rolled oats

½ cup raw nuts, chopped (I used almonds, walnuts and cashews)

½ cup raw seeds (I used sunflower and pumpkin)

½ cup shredded coconut

a pinch of himalaya salt/sea salt

½ teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or honey


Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together oil and syrup or honey, then add to dry ingredients and mix well to coat the dry ingredients.

Line a tray with baking paper and spread the mixture in a thin layer on the tray.

Bake at 150°C, checking often and stirring to ensure even browning.

When the granola has a nice light brown colour, remove from oven and cool.

Store in an airtight container.

Makes around 2 cups
