Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Oven
  • Glass Jar or Storage Container

Ingredients

  • 170g (2 cups) Grainy Oat Flakes
  • 60g (1/3 cup) Puffed Quinoa or Amaranth (optional) – You can also use more oats instead.
  • 75g (2/3 cup) Chopped Almonds
  • 75g (2/3 cup) Chopped Cashews
  • 75g (2/3 cup) Chopped Walnuts
  • 75g (2/3 cup) Chopped Hazelnuts
  • 45g (1/3 cup) Pumpkin Seeds
  • 45g (1/3 cup) Flax Seeds
  • 80g (3/4 cup) Cranberries or Raisins (whether you prefer)
  • 1 pinch Salt 
  • 4 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 100g (1/3 cup) Maple Syrup, Honey or Rice Syrup

Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 150°C (300°F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2

Toss the oats, popped quinoa or amaranth, almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, raisins and salt in a large bowl and stir equally.

3

Add the maple syrup and melted coconut oil and stir to combine. Make sure all of the ingredients are moistened.

4

Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the granola is golden brown. (It could also take a bit longer, which depends on your oven).

5

Allow the granola to cool completely – the air will help the granola to obtain a crunchy texture.

Notes

  1. Nuts: I used a mix of whole and sliced almonds. You can use both or either, whatever you like.

  2. Make-Ahead Instructions: Granola is the perfect recipe to make ahead because it stays fresh for so long. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 weeks. Even better than containers are glass jars – they are not just airtight but also really beautiful. Besides storing your granola, you can use them to decorate your kitchen or to give away your homemade granola as a gift.

My Recommendation

Here are some beautiful jars, storages boxes and mixing bowls I found on Amazon that you can use to store your self-made granola.
