Homemade Granola

I'm personally a fan of making something myself if I can, rather than shop-bought (although I admit, sometimes convenience and time play a big role!). Since I had time on my hands this week and needed granola for my Breakfast Cake recipe, I decided to make my own. This literally took less than an hour. This makes quite a lot and will keep me going for two weeks!


400g Oats

150g Mixed Seeds (I used Sunflower and Pumpkin)

1 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

100g Melted Coconut Oil

70g Maple Syrup (you could also use runny honey if you prefer)

1 Tsp Vanilla Essence

70g Dried Fruit (I used Cranberries and Blueberries)

How I make my homemade granola:

  1. First, pre-heat your oven to 180ºC Fan and line a large baking tin/roasting tin.

  2. In a bowl, combine the oats, seeds, salt and cinnamon until fully mixed.

  3. Melt your coconut oil over a low heat and add in the maple syrup and vanilla. Add this to the dry ingredients.

  4. Mix together well, ensuring all the dry ingredients are fully coated.

  5. Pour your mixture into your baking tin/roasting tin and spread it out. Use your hands to 'clump' bits of the mixture together.

  6. Pop into the oven and while you will bake this for c.20-25 minutes, set your timer for c.12 minutes so that you can give the mixture a stir halfway through the cooking process.

  7. When done, take out of the oven and mix in your dried fruit.

  8. This will store nicely in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. You can also use it in my Breakfast Cake recipe!
