Homemade granola

September 26, 2014


Yesterday when I saw the healthy homemade granola parfait recipe on my twitter feed from Food52 I thought this would be a good way to get the best of the jar of coconut oil I have at home. I have never made granola at home before so this was a first. I had to improvise the recipe to use the stuff I had at in the cupboard. 


First I got a fresh coconut and poke a hole in one of the eyes, give it to my dauhgter with a straw to enjoy the juice.


Once the coconut was drained I have tried my best to break it open nicely and managed to break the shell in to two parts in the middle which I passed on to my daughter again to make a coconut bikini and play with it.


After taking out of the shell I peeled and grated the coconut in the food processor. 


In the meantime I roasted the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in a pan for 1-2 minutes. Transferredd the seeds to a big bowl and melted the coconut oil in the same pan.


Then I added grated coconut, rolled oats, flex seed, flaked almonds to the roasted seeds. and mixed everything well.


I mixed the honey and the melted coconut oil in the same cup that I measured everything and added that to the oats and mixed until the oats are well coated with the cocnut oil and honey.


I put everything in a big oven dish and baked it in gas mark 3 oven for almost 45 minutes until everything is golden brown. I mixed it with a spoon every 15 minutes while it is in the oven. 


Ingredients I put in this is simply what I had in the cupboard and will probably different next time I make granola;


6 cups of rolled oats

Half a 25 gr pack of sunflower seeds

Half a 25 gr pack of pumpkin seeds

2 tablespoons of hemp seeds

2 table spoons of golden syrup 

2 table spoons of honey

2 heaped cold table spoons of cocnut oil which I melted in a pan.


I had 2 jars and a baby jar of granola, but it was a total hit at breakfast and I guess I will be making more once we finish this batch.


By the way I like it best with yogurt and fresh fruit.
