Simple homemade granola

By Kate Gardner

Makes 5-6 cups of granola

  • 300g oats
  • 200g chopped nuts and seeds  (pecans and almonds are my favourites, plus pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
  • 300g dried fruit (I generally stick to raisins and sultanas but feel free to use anything!)
  • 100g coconut oil
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C (fan 140). Line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a pan, gently melt the coconut oil and stir in the coconut sugar so it dissolves. Add cinnamon if using.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the oats and chopped nuts/seeds. Pour over the coconut mix and stir well so everything is combined and coated.
  4. Tip the mixture onto the baking tray and spread out evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring it around halfway — it should be toasted and golden but not burnt.
  5. Add the dried fruit and return to the oven for 5 minutes so that the fruit swells and toasts slightly, but does not burn.
  6. Leave to cool then transfer to a sealed container to store.
