Granola. I like it.  I like it a lot!

Some shop bought granolas can be quite generous with added sugars, so I set out to try and make a granola which was still full of flavour but not loaded with added sugar.  And this is the result.

I love some sprinkled on goats milk yoghurt or I just grab some to nibble on during the day when I need something to keep me going until the next meal.

There are many different combinations of nuts and dried fruits for a granola, try a few different combos and see what you like best.


-1 cup gluten free oats

-1/2 cup raw nuts (cashews, almonds or hazelnuts all work well)

-1/2 cup dried fruit (dates, raisins, cranberries )

-2 tbsp. honey

-2 tbsp. coconut oil or olive oil

-1 tsp. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix


How to Make

Preheat oven to 150 C and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and then spread onto lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes then give the granola a stir/shake.  Bake for a further 5 minutes until the oats are golden.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Store in an airtight container.


Enjoy 🙂
