This homemade granola is so delicious, easy to make, and healthy. It is packed full of healthy fats for growing children and a perfect snack or breakfast. Top it with yogurt and berries, or milk for a grain-free cereal.  You can halve the recipe for a smaller batch.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried coconut flakes
  • 1 cup mixed sliced nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews) 
  • ½ cup Pepitas 
  • ½ cup Sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax meal (linseed meal) 
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup rice malt syrup or maple syrup 
  • 3-4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Combine all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and then add the wet ingredients (rice malt syrup/maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil) and mix well until all combined. 

Spread the granola on the lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.

Gently mix/flip over the granola and place it back in the oven for 5 more minutes or until golden brown.

When ready, remove from the oven and let it sit for at least 15 minutes to become crunchy. 

Be careful to watch in the oven as it can quickly burn!

Store in a jar or airtight container. Makes around 8-10 servings.
