Crunchy Delightful Granola
5 from 3 votes
This is about a week’s worth of granola for one person, (about six bowls). You can store it easily: packed in a (somewhat) air-tight container you can store it for a month (or maybe longer, I’ve never made it past a month)

Ingredients

Optional:

  • 2 tbsp grated coconut (for the extra coconutty flavour; we usually serve one bowl’s worth with about 4 tbsp of soy yogurt or milk)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C/300°F.
  • Chop the almonds into little pieces.
  • In a large baking tray, spread the oil out evenly with an oil brush or a piece of kitchen paper.
  • Put the oatmeal, almonds, pumpkin seeds in the tray. Add ginger powder and a pinch of salt. Mix it all in.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Stir once or twice in between.
  • After 30 minutes, add the maple syrup.
  • Bake for another 25 minutes. Stir once or twice in between.
  • Once it’s done, let it cool down just a bit before you transfer it to a container. Let it cool in the container before you close it off.
  • If you wait too long taking the granola out of the tray, the maple syrup will stick to it. If that’s the case: just pop it back in the oven for another 5 mins or so!

NOTES

Christine’s pro tips
This is really tasty with some grated coconut. At the 55-minute mark, sprinkle the grated coconut over the granola, and make sure to get it out 5 minutes later. Don’t let it burn!
You can also use almond slivers instead of raw almonds. Almond slivers can usually be found near the cake baking section of your supermarket, near the icing and other toppings. The same goes for almond slivers as for grated coconut: wait until the last 5 minutes. They burn easily.
Our nutritional data also includes the grated coconut.

  1. What should we eat this with? Just by itself or mix in Yogurt or Milk?

    1. Yes, good question – and that’s really up to you! There are some great soy yogs and milk out there, and coconut and almond milk are my personal faves with this one. It does taste really nice on it’s own, but to make it a more complete breakfast I would add something 🙂

  2. Can you use honey instead of maple syrup? Does it behave differently?

    1. Hey Suki, no honey is fine in there – I’ve tried it. The maple syrup is to keep it vegan 🙂

  3. How much grated coconut is recommended? There has to be a typo there because 1/4 doesn’t say something

    1. Hi Evi! Oh, well spotted, thanks. Not quite sure what happened there. For this size recipe as it stands 2 tbsp should be about right. I’ve just updated the recipe. Thanks again, hope you’re well!
