A simple granola made from jumbo oats, olive oil and maple syrup. A versatile base recipe allowing you to get creative with your extras.
  • 600g jumbo oats
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 100g olive oil
  • 100g maple syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • + Chopped seeds, nuts, dried fruit, coconut - desiccated or chips, your choice.
  1. Pre heat the oven to 160ÂșC (fan)
  2. In a large bowl toss the oats with the cinnamon and salt
  3. Warm the olive oil and maple syrup or honey together in a saucepan until loose, stir until well blended. Add the vanilla extract and pour over the oat mixture, making sure all the oat grains are well coated.
  4. Spread the oiled oats in a thin layer on a lined baking sheet, go onto another sheet if necessary. If the oats aren't in a thin layer they won't crisp up. Transfer to the pre-heated oven.
  5. After 10 minutes, remove and sprinkle over your chopped nuts, seeds, dried fruit and coconut. Stir so everything is evenly spread and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes or so until toasty and browned.
  6. Allow to cool fully before transferring to an airtight glass jar where it will keep for a few weeks.
  7. A serving of granola is approximately 40g.
