Home-made Nutty Granola



  • 2 cups whole rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw nuts, chopped ( I used hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and cashews)
  • ¼ cup seeds e.g. sunflower and pumpkin
  • 2-3 tablespoons agave syrup (honey or maple syrup may be used)
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and use your hands to mix the syrup and oil well.
  3. If coconut oil is solid then melt before mixing so it is easier to combine.
  4. Spread the mixture onto a baking tray and even out so the mixture is in a thin layer.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, toss the ingredients and bake for a further 5-10 minutes until slightly golden.
  6. Remove from oven, allow to cool before serving or storing.
  7. You may add some unsweetened dried fruit to the cooked granola, I’m just not a fan personally!
  8. Store in an airtight container & in a cool, dry place.

Perfect with almond milk as a breakfast or as a topping on some fruit with greek yoghurt as a post-workout snack, or any time for that matter 😀
