Homemade Seeded Granola

Making homemade granola is easier than you think and it will keep fresh in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.  Dried figs and a little raw honey, keeping the sugar content to minimum without compromising on the flavour, sweeten this granola!

You will need...

Large baking tray
Non stick baking parchment
Food processor or hand blender
Large mixing bowl

250g ready to eat figs (storks removed)
100g coconut oil, melted
200g rolled oats (jumbo or gluten free)
80g pumpkin seeds
80g sunflower seeds
80g roasted chopped hazelnuts
80g sesame seeds
80g ground flaxseeds (linseeds)

2 tbsp raw honey

To make...

Serves 8-10

  1. Preheat the oven to 150/130 (fan)
  2. Line the baking tray with non stick baking parchment
  3. Blend the figs with the melted coconut oil and vanilla essence until it is a fully combined paste, about 1 minute
  4. Mix together the oats, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, sesame seeds and ground flaxseeds
  5. Stir in the fig paste, making sure that oat/seed mix is fully coated, mix for a good few minutes
  6. Stir in the honey and mix thoroughly

  8. Bake for another 20 minutes, mix again, bake for another 20 minutes
  9. Turn the oven off but leave the tray in for 1 hour, this helps the granola become a little crunchy
