Chunky Granola with Pecans, Cashews and Cinnamon! 10-ingredient chunky style homemade classic granola. Each mouthful is like a warm hug! 



  • 2 cups (200g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (50g) coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup (70g) raw cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup (60g) raw pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp (10g) chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup (100g) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (65g) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract 
  • 1 large egg white 


  1. Preheat oven to 160ºC (320ºF) and line a large flat baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, coconut, chopped cashews and pecans, chia seeds and cinnamon. Mix until well combined with a wooden spoon.  
  3. Pour in maple syrup, melted coconut oil and vanilla. Mix until well combined. 
  4. In a small bowl, add egg white and use a whisk to beat until frothy and white, approx. 1 minute (see photo above). 
  5. Pour whipped egg white into granola mixture and mix until well combined. 
  6. Spoon and spread granola out onto prepared tray. 
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until toasted and golden. Do not stir granola during or after baking, otherwise you won’t get any chunks! 
  8. Remove from oven and allow granola to cool completely on tray. 
  9. Once cooled, you can gently pick up chunks of granola and transfer them to an airtight container to store for later or serve right away! 
  10. Serve with milk or yoghurt, fresh berries and dried fruit!


Store granola in an airtight container or a glass jar, such as a mason jar, in the pantry, for up to 2 weeks.
