Blueberry pancake granola

The Sugar Hit!

I am a pancake fiend. In this book alone there are no less than four pancake recipes. But as man cannot live on bread alone, this woman cannot live on pancakes alone (though she wishes she could). Enter, pancake-favoured granola. This crunchy, buttery, maple-y mix is studded with blueberries and hits all the right favour notes for a pancake breakfast. But instead of being warm, not at all portable and necessitating a leisurely morning, this granola is crunchy, portable and super-quick to grab. It’s also full of good fats and plenty of fibre – bonus!


Quantity Ingredient
200g whole rolled oats, (porridge)
100g quinoa flakes, (or replace with additional oats)
150g whole pecans
45g flaked almonds
60g chia seeds
125ml maple syrup
60ml runny honey
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
30g butter, melted, (or coconut oil is good too)
2 teaspoons linseed oil, (optional)
125g dried blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Put the oats, quinoa flakes, pecans, almonds and chia seeds in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. In a measuring pitcher, whisk together the maple syrup, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, melted butter and linseed oil, if using, until incorporated. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and stir together well.
  4. Dump the mixture onto the lined trays and spread out in even layers. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring everything around halfway through baking time, making sure to bring the edges into the middle and vice versa. At the end of baking, the mixture will have browned but may still feel a little soft – don’t worry it will crisp up as it cools.
  5. Leave to cool on the trays completely, then stir through the blueberries. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 1–2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
