Homemade Granola In 10 Steps

I have this recipe for a while now, and I have been meant to try it for ages but finally I have made it today and OMG! I can confidently say is better than any cereal or granola I have tried before.

Is properly crunchy and crispy. Is like one of those sugar loaded cereals (that taste so good) except that this one is actually very healthy! The right amount to serve once is cooked is: if you are losing 1/2 or 3/4 cup or 1 cup if you are maintaining.



2 cups of oats

1 cup of pecans (or hazelnuts)

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

3 tablespoons sesame seeds

3 tablespoons chia (optional)

3 tablespoons coconut (optional)

3 tablespoons of flaxseed (optional)

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup dried fruit

1. Turn on the oven at 150 degrees celcius
2. Place the hazelnuts on a tray and toast them for 5 minutes
3. In a bowl mix the oats, sesame seeds, hazelnuts and almonds
4. Heat up the coconut oil and the honey until they are both melted and combined
5. Pour rue honey mix to the oat mix
6. Mix well
7. Spread on 1 or 2 trays and toast for 20 minutes (or until crispy)
8. Move around every 5 minutes
9. Once they are out of the oven mix in the raisins and the cranberries
10. Keep in an air thigh container and keep in a cool place

You can serve with a bit of yogurt and fruit:

Or you can serve with almond or coconut milk just as cereal:

    Ursula is there anything that I could supplement instead of honey if I want to have this granola during the no sugar November?! Thanks

    Hi there
    Love your recipes but always get confused with “cup” measurements. Do you have an easy way of remembering or is it possible to consider using grams in addition to cups?
    Thanks so much

      Hi Emma! I have a little meassuring cup and find so easy to have a little cup rather than a weighing scale as mine is huge and a bit of a pain taking it out every time I bake! What I can promise is I can do a printable easy converting sheet so everyone can print and go back to it when needed! X
