This recipe came inches from being in the bin…I know I’m selling it well. This recipe was actually meant to be another creation, but whilst I nibbled away thinking I had to go back to the drawing board, I realised it tasted bloody amazing and that I had in fact created something magical, even if i do say so myself. Just like the discovery of penicillin, although maybe not quite on the same scale, but in my opinion it’s just as life changing.


Most granola’s you get in the supermarket are rammed full of sugar and a lot of people will think they are choosing the healthy option when in fact they would probably be better off getting a chocolate bar. With this granola recipe you won’t be mislead, crunchy, full of healthy fats, natural ingredients, a great way to jazz up a bowl of yoghurt.

Yields: 440g of granola


150g Rolled oats
20g Chia seeds
30g Pumpkin seeds
50g Raisins
40g Desiccated Coconut
50g Peanut Butter
40g Coconut Oil
20g Honey


Pre-heat the oven to 180°c. In the microwave melt the coconut oil in a bowl, once melted add the peanut butter and honey, stirring until well combined. In a separate bowl mix together all the remaining ingredients. Combine the two mixtures together until everything is well combined. Pour the mixture into a 35x25cm non-stick tray, press it down slightly and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden on top. Remove from the oven and allow to completely cool. You can then crumble up the granola with your hands, I like to leave some chunks in mine. Store in an air tight container at room temperature, great to add some crunch to a variety of dishes.
