1 Cup Rolled Oats
5 Medjool dates, pitted
1/2 Cup Pepita Seeds
1/2 Cup Almonds
1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cup Dried Apricots, chopped finely
1/2 Cup Macadamias
1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes, lightly toasted
1/2 Cup Raisins
1/2 Cup Hazelnuts
1/4 Cup Cranberries
1/4 Cup Quinoa Flakes
1/4 Cup Linseeds
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp ground ginger
1/2 Tsp Nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line a baking tray and set it aside.
  3. In a food processor, add the oats, macadamias, almonds, hazelnuts, and dates. Pulse a few times until it resembles a chunky crumb texture.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add the linseeds, sunflower seeds, pepita seeds, quinoa flakes, spices, honey, and EVOO. Mix to combine.
  5. Pour the mixture onto the lined baking tray and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring at the 5-minute mark to ensure it doesn't burn.
  6. After 5 minutes, add the coconut flakes, cranberries, raisins, apricots, and an extra generous drizzle of EVOO. Return it to the oven for 4-5 minutes to soften the fruit and until the granola turns golden.
  7. Allow it to cool completely and enjoy it with yogurt or milk. You can also add some fresh berries; the options are endless for this homemade granola.
  8. Store the granola in an airtight container in the cupboard for up to 1 week.
