Homemade Granola

  • Author: Kate Willbourn-Trevett
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes



  • Rolled Oats 2 Cups
  • Puffed Rice 1.5 Cups
  • Cinnamon 1 heaped tsp
  • Shredded Coconut 40g
  • Dried Sultanas 120g
  • Mixed Nuts 65g (I love to use pecans, raw peanuts & macadamia nuts)
  • Pepita Seeds 80g
  • Sunflower Seeds 30g
  • Maple Syrup 100ml
  • Vanilla Paste 1/2 tsp (alternatively use 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • Macadamia oil 2 tb
  • Honey 1 tb


  1. Preheat the oven to 150C.
  2. In a small saucepan, gently heat the oil, maple syrup, cinnamon & vanilla. Swirl the pan to encourage the ingredients to combine. Remove from the stovetop.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together the oats, puffed rice, seeds & nuts. Add the warm syrup, stirring until everything has a shiny coat.
  4. Line a large rectangle baking tray with baking paper. Pour in the oat mixture and spread out evenly using a spoon. Place in the oven for 15 mins . Remove from the oven and give the mixture a stir. Return to the oven for a further 10mins. Remove from oven one last time, add the coconut, sultanas and drizzle over the honey, giving it a quick toss before returning to the oven for a further 3 mins.  Turn off the temperature & allow the granola to cool in oven.  Store in an airtight container.
  5. Enjoy!
