  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup almonds roughly chopped
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • ½ tso ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Toppings of choice - yoghurt fresh fruit, cranberries, dried fruits


  • Preheat oven to 300F/150C
  • Combine oats, almonds, coconut, sunflower seeds, pepitas and cinnamon in a large bowl
  • Combine honey and coconut oil in a bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds until melted and runny
  • Pour coconut oil and honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir until well combined.
  • Lay out granola in a thin layer onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper
  • Place into oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until granola is golden brown and crunchy (note 1 & 2)
  • Keep in an airtight container until ready to serve


Note 1 Every so often, use a spatula to turn or shake up the granola so it cooks evenly. Remember the granola will continue to cook and harden once taken out of the oven so don't worry if it's not too crunchy yet.
Note 2 Cooking time will vary. We don't have a fan forced oven which meant it took less time than usual. What took us 50 minutes to make in our last oven, took only about 25 minutes in our current oven. You really need to keep an eye on it in the oven, so check it every so often to make sure it doesn't burn
