What we love about this granola, apart from its ‘coconutty’ flavour, is the crunchy clusters it forms when baked. This granola is ideal on top of our smoothie bowls, like our Açaí Bowl Extra Everything! and Kiwi, Kale & Chia Parfait, or simply sprinkled on yoghurt. We tend not to make our granola too sweet, but feel free to add an extra dash of maple syrup if you wish.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g mixed raw nuts and seeds
400g rolled oats
100g raw buckwheat
80g buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
125ml cold-pressed coconut oil
5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
125ml filtered water
50g coconut chips

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Add the dry ingredients (apart from the coconut chips) to a large bowl. Stir until well mixed and set aside.
  3. Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a saucepan on a low heat. Stir through the water and then pour over the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  4. Spread the granola out in a single layer on the baking tray and bake for 20–30 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally.
  5. Towards the last few minutes of baking, scatter the coconut chips on top, but keep an eye on them as they burn quickly.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool. Pour into a large sealable glass jar and store in the pantry. It can keep for a month if sealed.

Note

  • We like to use almonds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds.
