Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free rolled oats or regular rolled oats
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • ½ cup cranberries
  • 1/3 cup of sultanas golden raisin
  • 1/3 cup of currants
  • 1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Coarsely chop the macadamias, and pop into the bowl
  • Add in the oats, oat bran, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and salt
  • In a small bowl, whisk the honey, coconut oil and vanilla together (if the honey isn't runny enough, you may have to warm in a small saucepan, or pop into the microwave for 40 seconds)
  • Pour the honey mixture over the oats, and mix well until everything is coated
  • Pour the oat mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet and spread out evenly
  • Pop into the oven and bake for 10 minutes, stir and return to the oven for another 5 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and toss in the dried fruits (if using) while the granola is still warm. The granola will dry out and crisp up while it cools. Store in an air-tight container until ready to use or freeze
