On Sundays, I’d like to prepare for the new week. It’s easier to make healthy choices when you’re busy or when you have to hurry in the morning. Baking fresh granola has become a routine on Sunday mornings. It allows me to have a quick, delicious and balanced breakfast on weekdays. Super easy and with less additives or sugars than the ones in store. Read along for the recipe, including some serving tips!

  • Preheat the oven on 150°C.
  • Add the oats, pecans, walnuts, almond flakes, pumpkin seeds and cinnamon to a big bowl and stir everything together.
  • Add in the vanilla and stir again.
  • Melt 3tbsp of coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute. This will result in 6tbsp melted coconut oil. Add it to the mixture and stir again.
  • Add the honey and stir again.granola prep
  • Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and pour the mixture onto the baking tray. It’s important that all the seeds are well spread, otherwise they won’t bake evenly. I always use 2 baking trays to make sure the granola can bake well and becomes very crunchy.granola baking tray before baking
  • Put the baking tray in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • Take the granola out of the oven after 25 minutes and let it cool down.
  • Add in the cranberries as a finishing touch. It’s important to add them after the baking process, otherwise they will become very hard.
  • Save in a closed box in a dry place.granola after baking
