Homemade Granola

Store bought granola can be expensive and contains added sugars, preservatives, artificial colors, and flavorings. 

Homemade granola is super easy to make and keeps for weeks without all of the added junk. This recipe makes a great snack or a healthy cereal to start off your day. 

4 cups raw Oats
¼ cup flour- I used oat flour to make these gluten free
½ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup coconut sugar* or brown or raw sugar
1 heaping tbsp raw cacao
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (linseed)
1 tbsp chia seeds
½ tsp sea salt
½ cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup raw honey

Add ins
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup dried fruit
1 cup chopped nuts (any variety)
1 cup seeds- I like pumpkin and sunflower
Sprinkle of spices- cloves, ginger and nutmeg for a holiday feel


  • Heat oven to 325F (200C)
  • Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl, including any nuts or spices if using
  • Add oil, vanilla and honey to dry ingredients 
  • Mix ingredients together, you may need to get your hands in there to mix
  • Pour granola mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper 
  • Bake for approximately 30-40 mins
  • Let cool slightly then crumble and store in airtight container. This will keep for at least two weeks. 
* If your following a low FODMAP diet, replace coconut sugar with ¼ cup brown sugar or ¼ cup raw sugar. Coconut sugar contains inulin and can trigger IBS symptoms.
