homemade healthy granola

Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries. I tend to find it’s not as filling as having eggs for breakfast but it’s a nice change when you feel like something different, and fantastic to bring when going on holidays where you won’t have the facilities to make a cooked breakfast.

Serves: 22 1/2 cup serves


3/4 cup pecans
3/4 cup walnuts
3/4 cup almonds
3/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
4 cups / 220g coconut flakes
1 1/2 cup oats or quinoa flakes or raw buckwheat
1 tsp nutmeg
3 tsp cinnamon
pinch of himalayan salt
5 tbs / 90g raw honey or rice malt syrup
45g butter, melted
3/4 cup / 75g sultanas
3/4 cup / 55g goji berries or any other dried berry e.g cranberries, blueberries


  1. Preheat fan forced oven to 140°C.
  2. Add nuts to the thermomix bowl.
  3. Place the steaming basket in to keep nuts down so they chop more evenly. Chop nuts 3 seconds/speed 4.
  4. Add the seeds, coconut flakes, oats, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
  5. Mix on reverse/10 seconds/speed 2.
  6. Add the butter and honey whilst mixing on reverse/20 seconds/speed 2.
  7. Spread out thinly on three large trays lined with baking paper. Cook for 10 minutes, then stir and cook for a further 6-8 minutes.
  8. Remove and sprinkle the dried fruit evenly on top of the granola.
  9. Leave to cool on trays (this makes it go crispy). Then store in an airtight container.

Here’s an idea of how to serve your granola, layer it in a jar with yoghurt and fruit to make a breakfast parfait!

I hope you love my granola as much as I do!

  • To make Macadamia, Cranberry and Coconut Granola switch the pecans and walnuts for extra macadamias, the almonds for extra oats and the dried fruit for cranberries. This is a very yummy variation!
