This easy granola recipe is filled with the wholesome goodness of nuts, seeds and other crunchy bits to make for the most satisfying breakfast. It can be served with a little milk or a dollop of yoghurt of your choice. For a gluten-free version, omit the oats and use buckinis or quinoa flakes. For strict paleo use coconut flakes instead.


  • 1⁄3 cup honey or rice malt syrup

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder

  • 2 cups rolled oats, buckinis, quinoa flakes or coconut flakes

  • 3 tablespoons raw almonds

  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons sunflower seeds

  • 3 tablespoons shelled pistachio nuts

  • 3 tablespoons shredded coconut

  • 3 tablespoons macadamia nuts

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 3 tablespoons dried blueberries (optional)


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

  • 2.

    Place honey or rice malt syrup in a large saucepan, add cinnamon and vanilla and warm over low heat for about 1 minute to melt.

  • 3.

    Remove pan from heat and add all remaining ingredients, except the blueberries, if using. Mix until all ingredients are well coated.

  • 4.

    Turn the mixture out onto the prepared baking tray. Spread thinly and bake for 8–10 minutes, or until the granola is lightly golden.

  • 5.

    Remove from the oven and slide the paper sheet onto a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before breaking up and tossing through dried blueberries, if using.

  • 6.

    Transfer to an airtight jar. Store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 1 month.
