Yet another granola! I’m obsessed. 


Fruit and Nut Granola

  • Author: By: The road to loving my Thermo Mixer
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 45
  • Total Time: 50


  • 800g oats
  • 200g almonds
  • 200g macadamia nuts
  • 50g cashews
  • 50g unsalted peanuts
  • 100g pepitas
  • 200g sunflower kernals
  • 200g shredded coconut
  • 60g flaxseed meal
  • 200g diced dried apple
  • 200g sultanas
  • 200g dried apricot, diced
  • 150g coconut oil
  • 120g honey
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place almonds, macadamias, cashews and peanuts into bowl and blitz on speed 5 until slightly crushed. This is to taste.
  3. In a large dish combine oats, nuts, pepitas and sunflower kernals.
  4. In the bowl add oil, vanilla and honey.
  5. Mix at 50 degrees, speed 2 until melted. This shouldn’t take too long.
  6. Pour the oil mix over the oat mixture. Use hands or spoon to mix well.
  7. Spread mixture across two large ovenproof dishes or trays lined with baking paper.
  8. Place into the oven. I had to cook mine for 45 minutes to get a nice golden colour – you might like more or less colour. The trick is to just watch it. Stir the mixture every 10 minutes or so to avoid any burnt bits.
  9. Once almost done, add the coconut. Cook for 5 minutes or until coconut is slightly toasted.
  10. Remove from oven. Add flaxseed and fruit to mixture. Combine well.
  11. Once cool, store in a jar or airtight container.

    Peta, when you say a heaped teaspoon of vanilla, do you mean vanilla essence (how do you heap a liquid)?

      Mmm… these look great. I’ve always been teepmtd to make granola bars at home. And then I remember that I’ll want to add too many chocolate chips for them to still be classified as granola bars instead of cookies. Your look like they have the perfect ratio! Thanks for the recipe!
