Homemade Granola

Quick, easy & that’s breakfast sorted for a week!




Prep time

5 mins

Cooking time

20 mins


  • 4 cups of rolled oats

  • 1 cup of flaxseed

  • 1 cup of walnuts

  • 1 cup of raisins or half and half with other dried fruits
    (I put dried cherries)

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • a little less than 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)

  • 2 tea spoons of vanilla essence

  • 1/2 cup of honey (or more)


  • Pre-heat the fan oven to 175°C (347°F).
  • Put the flaxseed and walnuts in a chopper and pulse a few times until they’re roughly chopped, yet almost pulverised.
  • Put all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Melt the coconut butter. Then add it to the bowl, as well as the vanilla essence and honey.
  • Mix everything well with a wooden spoon.
  • Put a sheet of parchment paper in a baking tray and pour the mixture in, spreading it everywhere evenly.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then take the tray out to give the granola a good mixing, then put in to bake for another 10 minutes. Have a look and decide if it needs a few more minutes in the oven – the colour you’re after is gold-brown!
  • Once out the oven, leave it to cool and then put in a food container.
    Enjoy with any sort of (nut) milk or (vegan) yogurt. 🙂
