Cook Time:
Yield: 20
Diet Suitability: Vegetarian, Low-Lactose, Low-Calorie
Method: Baking

Ingredients

  • Walnuts 150g
  • Almonds 125g
  • Pumpkin seeds 150g
  • Sunflower seeds 150g
  • Porridge Oats 300g
  • Honey 50g
  • Coconut oil 50g
  • Sultanas 150g (optional)

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C / Gas Mark 5.
  2. Place the walnuts and almonds in a food processor and pulse for about 30 seconds so that they are partially crushed.
  3. Add nut mix to a large mixing bowl with all the other dry ingredients, except the sultanas, and stir together.
  4. Melt the coconut oil with the honey on the stove.
  5. Once dissolved into a sweet liquid add it to the dry bowl and mix well. This should form a delicious oaty nutty bowl, which is slightly sticky.
  6. Place the mixture into a baking tray and bake for about 40 minutes at 180C, until crunchy. During this time you’ll need to stir the mixture to ensure that every bit of the granola gets nicely toasted and the top doesn’t burn.
  7. Once the granola is perfectly cooked remove the tray from the oven and allow it to cool.
  8. Stir in sultanas if desired.
  9. Store in an air-tight container to keep it wonderfully fresh and crunchy.
