Home-made Granola:

This home-made granola is great to have in your kitchen made ahead of time in a big batch so you always have a nutritious and healthy breakfast ready when you are on the go or even as a healthy snack! You can mix it up to include ingredients that you prefer but I suggest choosing products that are high in fibre and protein.


· ⅓ cup Real Maple Syrup – 80ml

· ⅓ cup Nut or Seed Butter – 80ml

· 1 tsp Vanilla Extract - 5ml

· ½ tsp Salt – 2.5ml

· 1 tbsp Cinnamon – 15ml

· 2 cups Rolled Oats (not Instant), Gluten-Free if necessary – 500ml

· ½ cup Pumpkin Seeds – 125ml

· ½ cup Slivered Almonds – 125ml

· ½ cup Walnuts - 125ml

· ½ cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes – 125ml

· ⅓ cup Dried Fruit (Optional) – 80ml


1. Preheat the oven to 160’C. Add the Maple Syrup, Nut/Seed Butter, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, and Salt to the base of a large bowl. Whisk until evenly incorporated.

2. Pour the Oats, Pumpkin Seeds, Almonds, and Coconut into the bowl and fold them into the wet mixture, until all pieces are evenly coated. Transfer this mixture to a greased or lined baking tray and press it into a thin, even layer using a spatula.

3. Bake for 20 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven, then remove and use a spatula to toss/flip the granola. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 6-7 minutes, then remove.

4. Immediately sprinkle the Dried Fruit over the Granola, using a spatula to gently toss the mixture. 5. Serve as desired; store leftovers at room temperature or in the fridge (recommended for crunchier granola) for up to one month.
