Spicy and nutty granola

with No Comments

This was my first homemade granola recipe courtesy of the wonderful Virginia Compton at Holistic Yoga Sangha and I love it. This tastes great with coconut milk but even better with coconut yogurt – but beware mix this with coconut yogurt and you won’t want to eat again for a while!


500g jumbo oats
200g skin on almonds
100g sesame seeds
250g dried apricots
4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
100ml sesame oil
120ml runny honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c
  2. Chop the dried apricots into quarters.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl with the cinnamon and ginger and mix together.
  4. Add the sesame oil and mix until all of the dry ingredients are lightly covered in oil.
  5. Add the honey and mix through.
  6. Spread the mixture on a baking try and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and mix up, replace back in the oven for a further five minutes or until the whole mix is golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool.
  9. Once cooled decant into an airtight storage container where it will keep for around three months.
