Crunchy granola anyone?

It is no secret I have a sweet tooth so when it comes to breakfast there is no denying that granola is one of my favourite things.  Baking my own makes me go weak at the knees, I get so excited I get to chose my favourite ingredients and make it just how I like it.

If you are anything like me, and I suspect by reading this you are, then you will enjoy munching away an entire bowl or sprinkling this golden goodness on yoghurt, pancakes and smoothie bowls galore!


  • 2 cups jumbo whole oats
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 tablespoon cinammon
  • 1/2 cup honey or agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds


  • In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients
  • Add honey and mix together
  • Line a tray and spread mixture evenly
  • Bake on low 110 °C for 60 min turning the granola over every 20 min or until golden brown
  • Let it cool so it hardens and becomes crunchy, store in jars or air tight containers – if you can make it last!

Tip: make it before you have visitors,  your entire house will smell like warm apple pie!
