Basic Granola

This granola is delicious as is but at the same time makes for the perfect base to add whatever else you wish to it. The coconut oil makes the granola crisp but you may replace it with olive oil if you are not keen on the sweetness.

The granola will keep for two weeks in a glass jar.

4x 250ml oats

250ml Almonds or any other nut you may prefer

125ml pumpkin seeds

2,5ml ground cinnamon

125ml melted coconut oil

125ml honey

5ml vanilla extract

180ml dried fruit like raisins or chopped, dried apricots, or chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 160℃ and line a roasting tin with baking paper.

Combine all the dry ingredients.

Combine all the wet ingredients and pour it over the dry ingredients. Mix together with your hands so that all the dry ingredients are lightly covered in the wet.

Bake the mixture for 12 minutes. Open the oven and give it a good stir before baking for another 10 – 15 minutes, until golden brown.

Cool the granola completely before stirring through the dried fruit or chocolate chips.

Store in an airtight glass container.
