This granola ticks all the boxes: it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar free and so simple to make. Whip up a big batch and enjoy it as a weight-balancing breakfast, a satiating snack or guilt-free dessert.


  • 2 cups of mixed nuts (seeds, coconut flakes or buckinis work)
  • 1/2 cup grains (rolled oats or quinoa flakes)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp of sweetener (maple syrup, rice malt syrup, raw honey or mashed banana)
  • Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
  • Spices (see below for some delicious options!)



  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until they’re coated with coconut oil. Add any additional spices and spread the granola evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  2. Place the tray in the oven at 160°C and allow the granola to roast for 15-20 minutes or until it’s lightly golden. Allow it to cool and enjoy it with your choice of milk or yoghurt and fresh fruit.


Some of my favourite flavour options are:

  • Cinnamon scroll: Add 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract to the mix.
  • Pecan & date: Add an additional 1/2 cup of chopped pecans before cooking. Mix through 1/2 cup chopped dates to the cooked granola.
  • Pumpkin spice: Add 1 tbsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground nutmeg and 1 tsp ground allspice.
