Rain, rain, and more rain… however Saturday morning’s stuck inside don’t have to be all bad. Ive been attempting to do an essay but instead find myself ‘procrastabaking’ in the kitchen, making a mixed spiced and salted nutty granola. I haven’t bought granola or muesli from the supermarket in a looooong time as its so hard to find a tasty one that isn’t 80% sugar! I still crave that morning crunch, so making my own is the answer and not only is it better for me health wise, but also a lot cheaper as I can make a bulk batch.

Total time:
Serves: 10
  • 2 cups jumbo rolled oats (can substitute quinoa oats or gluten free oats if your gluten intolerant)
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat kernels
  • 1/2 cup wholegrain rice puffs
  • 1/2 cup figs
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbl spoon mixed spice
  • 1/2 tbl spoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  1. Turn the oven onto 160 Degrees Celsius
  2. Line a large baking tray with baking paper
  3. Chop the figs into small pieces
  4. Add all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix together
  5. Add the spices and salt to the mix
  6. Add the melted coconut oil and rice malt and stir evenly throughout mixture until all ingredients feel like they have been coated
  7. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes
  8. In 15 minutes stir the granola so the bottom section is now on the top, bake for another 15 minutes at 160 degrees
  9. After 15 minutes give the granola another stir and turn the oven down to 110 Degrees, bake for another 30 minutes or until the granola is light brown and crunchy

I love this granola as its not too sweet, with the mixed spices, cinnamon, and a hint of salt it is a perfect balance for the taste buds 😉 Serve with fruit and yoghurt, or add it to your porridge for a little crunch.

Enjoy! x
