Every 2 or 3 weeks, all grains, seeds and spices come out of my pantry and get transformed into my yummy granola! You will thank yourself every morning that you took the effort to make this Granola, free of refined sugar, free of sunflower oil and all other 'bad' additives. These amounts are just a guideline, feel free to be creative and if you happen to not have one of the dry ingredients at hand, you are still able to make it. Don't be scarce on the need a lot!!!
  1. 500 - 750 gram rolled oats
  2. 1 1/2 cup (130 gr) pumpkin seeds
  3. 2 cups (200 gr) sunflower seeds
  4. 1 cup (175 gr) buckwheat kernels
  5. 2 cups (150 gr) coconut flakes
  6. 1/2 cup (75 gr) sesame seeds
  7. 1 cup (75 gr) quinoa flakes
  8. optional: 1/2 - 1 cup of chopped nuts, like almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, macadamias or pecans.
  9. 1/2 cup coconut oil virgin
  10. 3 tbs honey or maple syrup (if you are vegan and want to skip the honey)
  11. 2 tbs coconut palm sugar (optional)
  12. 2 tbs all spice (piment of jamaica)
  13. 4 tbs cinnamon
  14. 2 tsp salt
To add after roasting
  1. Chopped dried figs or any other dried fruit that you would like to add (apricots, raisins, cranberries, or dates)
  1. Turn on oven on 170°C. (325 F)
  2. In a big bowl mix all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a pot on your stove, slowly melt the coconut oil and add the honey. (don't let it boil!)
  4. Pour the coconut oil/honey liquid over the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with your hands.
  5. Have two oven trays ready and place a thin layer of the granola on each tray.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or when you think it's nice and brown according to your liking.
  7. Let cool by air.
  8. Mix in the dried fruit. To avoid big chunks of dried figs, you have to tear them apart a bit and mix well with the granola.
  9. Make sure it's cooled off completely before putting in a jar!
  1. Nuts are delicious in this granola, however nuts are also an easy snack or ingredients for salads. Therefore I often skip the nuts in our granola, just to keep an eye on our overall nut intake. So feel free to add the nuts if you like them for your breakfast.
  2. Fill a nice glass jar with your ready made granola and put the rest in plastic airtight bags to keep as a supply.
  3. Granola stays good for many weeks.
