Granola is the ultimate “hippy food”! It’s nourishing and delicious, but store bought granola is usually full of sugar, making it more delicious but less healthy. 

Making granola at home is actually quick & easy, especially with this recipe! 

  • 3 cups rolled gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 to / cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 cup nuts and/or seeds (almonds, pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder) – optional
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup


Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the wet ingredients all at once. Stir until mixture is even.

Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, stir it up a little so the edge don’t burn and bake for another 10 minutes.

Take it out to cool. The granola will get crunchy as it cools!

Enjoy with warm or cold almond, cashew or coconut milk, coconut yoghurt and/or some fresh or frozen berries.

When cool, store in an air tight container (preferably not plastic).
