Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups (200g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (90g) shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup (80g) raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup (80g) raw almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup (130g) honey
  • 50g (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • Dried Fruit
  • 1/3 cup (50g) dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup (50g) sultanas 
  • 1/3 cup (80g) dried apricots, roughly chopped

Instructions

  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, cashews, almonds and cinnamon. Mix until well combined with a wooden spoon.  
  3. In a small pot, pour in honey and add butter. Place over a low-medium heat and mix until butter has completely melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. 
  4. Pour honey and butter mixture into dry ingredients and mix until well combined and everything is coated. 
  5. Transfer granola onto lined tray and spread out evenly. 
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until toasted and lightly golden. Do not stir granola during or after baking, otherwise you won’t get any chunks! 
  7. Remove from oven and allow granola to cool completely on tray. 
  8. Once cooled, sprinkle over dried cranberries, sultanas and chopped apricots. Mix through granola. 
  9. Serve with milk or yoghurt and fresh berries. 
  10. Store granola in an airtight container or a glass jar, such as a mason jar, in the pantry, for up to 2 weeks.
