Homemade Granola

Growing up I was never a fan of cereal but homemade granola is now my go-to weekday breakfast. Whether it’s with some almond/cashew milk or a handful on top of my chia pudding, granola is so simple and what I reach for majority of the time in my week day rush. Making granola is so simple and you can easily change up each batch by changing the nuts, seeds or dried fruit you add. So feel free to make this recipe your own.

homemade granaola recipe

– 2 cups of oats ( I use gluten free but feel free to use rolled old fashioned oats)
– 1/2 cup of nuts chopped (I used walnuts and some flaked almonds)
– 1/2 cup of seeds ( I used pumpkin and sunflowers seeds)
– 1/2 cup of dried fruit (I used raisins and goji berries)
– 3Tbs of maple syrup or honey
– 2Tbs of coconut oil
– a pinch of salt

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  2. Combine all ingredients except for the dried fruit in a bowl.
  3. Use your hands to bring all the ingredients in your bowl together, the warmth of your hands should melt the coconut oil and your mixture should be slightly sticky and crumbly.
  4. Pour your mixture onto a baking sheet and put it in the oven for roughly 30 minutes, every 10 minutes stir the mixture so that more can brown.
  5. Be sure to keep an eye on your granola so it doesn’t burn.
  6. Once done allow to cool and add your dried fruit.
  7. Store in an airtight container.
