Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C) and place a sheet of baking paper onto a baking tray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, almonds, seeds, coconut, and salt.
  3. Pour over the maple syrup, and oil, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray and bake in the centre rack of the oven for 60 - 70 minutes, or until lightly golden. Stir every 15 - 20 minutes to achieve an even golden colour.
  5. When removed from the oven, let cool. It will continue to harden as it cools.
  6. If adding any dried fruits, stir it in now.
  7. When fully cooled, transfer to an airtight container or large glass storage jar.

Notes

  • * If you would like this granola to be less sweet, use ⅓ cup maple syrup instead.
  • Variations: add spices such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
  • Want to shorten the cooking time? Turn up the heat a bit, but be sure to keep an eye on it and stir more frequently to avoid burning. The mixture is ready when it's lightly golden.

Storage

  • Store sealed and on the counter for up to 3 weeks.

Hi Sadia,

I made this granola and it was sooo good. I'll do it again, that's for sure! I also checked the calories again the "low sugar" store bought and it was the same, while the taste of the home made was a 100 times better.

We're so glad you enjoyed the granola, Anna!

Fantastic yet simple granola! Another recipe proving that few ingredients can yield good results👏🏼
Crunchy, not too sweet (despite the maple syrup), and a discrete coconut flavour that suits everything. Amazing topping for smoothies.

This is so wonderful to hear, Louise! We love it on smoothies too 😍

I started making this recipe a year ago and never looked back at the store bought ones. Thank you for this!

Hi Sadie and the PUL team,

I made your toasted coconut and almond granola today. It's turned out so well!! My partner was eating it out of the roasting dish :)

I'm thrilled that I will no longer need to buy store granola.

I love your YouTube channel - tomorrow I'll be making your potato and pea curry, with Naan bread.

I love good food!

A big thank you!!
