Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C) and line a baking tray with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. To a food processor, add the oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, walnuts, pecans, cocoa, coconut, chia seeds and salt. Give it a few pulses to roughly chop the oats, seeds and nuts. If you don't have a food processor, you can also coarsely chop the nuts and seeds with a knife.
  3. Remove the blade from the food processor. If the blades can't be removed, transfer the contents to a large bowl instead. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract to the nuts and seeds and mix using a rubber spatula.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the baking tray and spread it out evenly.
  5. Let the granola bake in the oven on the centre rack for 20 - 22 minutes, stirring halfway to ensure even baking.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool completely. It will harden as it cools.
  7. Once completely cool, mix in the chocolate chunks, and enjoy with milk or yogurt and fresh fruit.

This recipe looks divine and I would love to try it! However it isn't doable for someone in a country that doesn't use cups. Sure, you could buy a scale and measuring cups online but it would help if the recipes were more accessible as I'm getting nowhere trying to use different converters :(

Hi there, Matilda! Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us. Would you kindly share what measurements are most accessible for you? We aim to be as inclusive as possible here at PUL so we appreciate the information to help us grow and improve 😊💖

Hii, do you think I can get away with subbing half of the oil with nut butter?

oh never mind haha I didn't see the other comment

Oh my heavens!!!
Thankyou for the splendid recipe! I tried this one out mere moments after watching the video. It's like a healthy chocolate fiesta in my mouth! This granola was fantastic with my morning yogurt bowl! Thanks again!

Dear Pick Up Limes Team,

You are absolutely wonderful to watch and learn from. I would love to see you guys make an app similar to MyFitnessPal and My Plate. It would include a place to import each part of the plate method and it would tell us if it was nutritious or not, instead of counting our calories and macros. I think it would be more inspiring if it focused on being nutritional instead of scaring us away from avocados and fruit. Thank you for your constant inspiration!

Best wishes!

Hello Dana, thank you for the kind words and suggestion! We've noted it down 🤓

Can I swap the coconut oil with nut butter?

PUL Team - June 14, 2021, 3:33 p.m.

Thank you for the question, I! The coconut oil helps the granola harden up to give nice and crunchy clusters. We'd recommend substituting it with a neutral vegetable oil, such as refined olive oil that doesn't impart the olive oil taste, rather than nut butter as we haven't had a chance to test it without oil. If you do experiment with using nut butter though, do let us know how it turns out!

Made this today and it is perfect. Not to sweet, doesn't clump, has real chocolate flavor - even liked it with just almond milk, which is pretty rare for me and granola. Definitely my new go-to granola recipe. My grocery order goofed and didn't give me the seeds I purchased so I upped the coconut, oats, and nuts to make up the difference in volume.

We're so grateful for the glowing review, Emmy, thank you! So happy to hear 😃

Probably the best recipe for a morning pick me up. Didn’t know I needed this.
Have a great day!
