Coconut & Cinnamon Granola

So So Good. 

The beauty with making your own Granola is that you can alter your ingredients to your preference and add/swap/remove the bits of store bought granola you don’t like!

I kept mine pretty simple as I usually add it to yoghurt or milk with fresh berries when it’s done.

 Feel free to alter this recipe and be sure to suggest anything you think could work!

  • Oats- I recommend Jumbo Oats- this makes up the volume of your granola so use as much as you want to bake!
  • Dessicated Coconut
  • Seeds- I used Sesame, Sunflower, Pumpkin and Chia!
  • Nuts- I went with a big mix bag of nuts to get a bit of everything in there!
  • 3 Teaspoons of Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence.
  • Equal parts Coconut Oil and Honey; For my serving I used around 4 Tablespoons of each.
  1. Combine all your dry ingredients and flavours in a big bowl.
  2. Add your Coconut Oil and Honey to a pot and heat until combined and smooth.
  3. Add your oil mix to the oats and mix thoroughly.
  4. You don’t want your mix to be too wet but if you don’t think everything is coated well just heat a little more of your coconut and honey and add!
  5. Place your mix in a big tray or low rise oven dishes and add to a preheated oven (180’C) and bake for around 40-60 minutes tossing continuously throughout the baking period to make sure all parts are getting nicely toasted.
  6. Take out of the oven when it’s a nice golden colour, it may not seem really crunchy at the time but when it hits the cool air, with a bit more tossing it will start to crisp up.
  7. When entirely cool add to an air-tight jar.
  8. Serve with all the breakfast foods.
