Recipe For Granola Easy To Make At Home

As I am sucrose intolerant I find it easier to make my own breakfast cereal than read all the ingredients on all the packets of muesli’s available in the supermarkets. This granola is by no means the cheaper option, but it is the healthier choice.


  • 300g Rolled oats
  • 75g Sunflower seeds
  • 170g mixed raw nuts
  • 20g wheat germ
  • 15mls pumpkin seeds
  • 45g desiccated coconut
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 80mls canola oil
  • 250g honey
  • 2.5mls vanilla extract
  • 75g chopped dried fruit
  • 90g raisins
  • 60g cranberries
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  1. heat the oven to 180° Celsius
  2. place the ingredients up to and including the lemon zest into a bowl and mix
  3. in a sauce pan heat the oil and honey
  4. when the honey has melted remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract
  5. mix into the dry ingredients and place onto a baking tray
  6. bake for 40 minutes, turning the mixture over once to prevent burning
  7. add the dried fruit, raisins and cranberries
  8. place back in the switched off oven for an hour turning the mixture every now and then to prevent burning
  9. store in a sealed container with the cinnamon
My Notes
I have an LG light oven and do the first baking at 160° Celsius and the drying out at 40° Celsius

  1. I am going to make this for Jess, she loves granola for breakfast.
    Have you tried taking a Chromium Supplement? It is great for balancing the glucose levels and recommended by our doctor for Jess. I have found a great one at Dischem, 1/3rd of the price of the first ones we got. It is the Dischem Gold Range and the doctor has approved it as being the genuine stuff.
    Thank you for all the wonderful recipes and the great read every day. xx hugs xx

    1. Hi Sharon, I take chromium every day in my multivit, as well as an additional supplement when I have sugar! Thanks for the advice. Hope you enjoy the granola xxx
