Healthy Granola


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cups barley
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup pepita seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (e.g. apricots, cranberries, dates, sultanas)


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Place all ingredients (except the dried fruit) in a large bowl and mix well to combine. If you would like to sweeten the mixture, you might like to drizzle some honey throughout.
  3. Spread the mixture out evenly on the lined baling tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and stir the mixture. Bake for another 10 – 15 minutes or until crunchy.
  5. Remove the tray form the oven. Sprinkle dried fruit throughout the mixture and allow to cool.
  6. Serve granola with some Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit for a perfectly balanced breakfast.
