I’ve caught the granola bug! Last week I made a Maple Cinnamon Granola so today I thought I’d experiment with new flavours.

This is a fruitless version shown. I have added 400g sultanas and 100g diced dried apricot to the mixture since the picture was taken as my partner loves the added fruit.

I love this because it’s so much cheaper than store bought cereals, healthier and it’s very filling. My partner finds it fills him up until lunch time.



Honey Nut Granola

  • Author: The road to loving my Thermo Mixer
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 45
  • Total Time: 55


  • 650g oats
  • 200g almonds
  • 150g unsalted peanuts
  • 100g honey roasted cashews
  • 100g pepitas
  • 120g sunflower kernals
  • 100g shredded coconut
  • 50g chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 120g honey
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place almonds and peanuts into bowl and blitz on speed 5 until slightly crushed. This is to taste.
  3. In a large dish combine oats, almonds, peanuts, pepitas and sunflower kernals.
  4. In the bowl, blitz your cashews on speed 5 until slightly crushed. Set these aside.
  5. In the bowl add oil, vanilla and honey.
  6. Mix at 50 degrees, speed 2 until melted. This shouldn’t take too long.
  7. Pour the oil mix over the oat mixture. Use hands or spoon to mix well.
  8. Spread mixture across two large ovenproof dishes or trays lined with baking paper.
  9. 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.
  10. Once almost done, add the coconut and cashews. Cook for 5 minutes or until coconut is slightly toasted.
  11. Remove from oven. Add chia seeds to mixture. Combine well.
  12. Once cool, store in a jar or airtight container.

    Sorry to ask but how long does this keep? Do i store it in the cupboard or fridge? Also how do you eat it (with milk on top of cereal)?

    Just wondering if you know where I can buy bulk amounts of the ingredients for this? I make it all the time and thought it could be cheaper somewhere other than the supermarket??? I am in the western suburbs of Melbourne…
    Thanks, Tabetha
