Granola is as varied in ingredients as you want it to be. It is also marketed as a gourmet breakfast cereal when it is nothing more than a little fancied up toasted muesli. The best think about making your own is you can add whatever you like to it and have control over the quality. Oh, and there is the massive difference in price. This is my favourite granola recipe however I encourage you to add and subtract your ingredients as you desire.


Rolled oats (not instant) 3 cups
lightly packed light brown sugar 3 tbsp
Ground cinnamon ½ tsp
Sea salt ¼ tsp
Pepitas 2 tbsp
Sunflower seeds 2 tbsp
Sesame seeds 3 tsp
Raw almonds ⅓ cup
Maple syrup (genuine Canadian) ⅓ cup
Coconut oil ¼ cup
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
⅓ cup Dried fruit of choice


  • Heat oven to 140°C
  • Mix all dry ingredients together except the fruit
  • In a separate bowl mix sunflower oil, vanilla and maple syrup
  • Pour into bowl of dry ingredients and combine until well mixed
  • Spread on a backing sheet and put into oven
  • Stir every 15 minutes and cook until a lovely rich golden brown
  • Cool then add dried fruit if adding
  • Store in a sealed container
  • Serve with cold milk and or fresh plain yogurt
