Mixed seed and nut honey granola

About this recipe: Making your own granola may seem like a lot of effort but you get to control exactly what goes into it. A lot of the shop bought ones have a frightening amount of sugar. You should be able to get all of the ingredients in a health shop, if they are not in your supermarket. Play around with the ingredients and you can come up with something unique.

Serves: 8 

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 200g porridge oats (not the instant kind)
  • 100g rye flakes
  • 25g sunflower seeds
  • 25g pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds or linseeds
  • 50g chopped pecans
  • 50g chopped almonds

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat your oven to 150 C / 130 C fan / Gas 2.
  2. Mix the oil, vanilla and honey and maple syrup together in a large bowl. Add in all of the remaining ingredients. Mix everything really well together and then spread the mixture thinly and evenly on to two baking trays.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Check from time to time. If the oven seems too hot, turn it down. The granola should only be very light brown in colour. Break up the mixture and stir it around and bake for a further 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the baking trays and spread it evenly onto a flat dish to cool. It will crisp up as it cools.
  5. After it has cooled, pour it into an airtight container and store in a cool dark place. It will keep for up to a month. Serve with yoghurt and fruit compote.
