Seedy Granola

Seedy Granola

We all love granola in this house – especially if I’ve made some using a recipe by Emily!  A couple of weeks ago, part way through scoffing a bowl of the Peanut Butter & Honey one, DD1(4.75) suggests that the next time I make ‘nola, I should put nuts & seeds in it.

Always eager to please her ever-more fussy palette, I did just that.

She (and the rest of us did like it), but at the end of breakfast, she turned to me & said “Mummy, that was very nice, but perhaps next time you could make it with just peanut butter instead?” <sigh>


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup seeds (I used pumpkin & sunflower)
  • 6 tbs safflower oil (I use this)
  • 6 tbs pure maple syrup

to serve

  • milk &/or a sliced banana


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F
  2. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
  3. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  4. Add wet ingredients and mix together.
  5. Spread evenly on the baking tray.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown around the edges (& you can bear the delicious smell no more)
  7. Let cool completely
  8. Crumble into small pieces and store in an airtight container.
  9. Try not to eat it all before it’s time to serve.

    Is it ‘clumpy’ granola Bessie? It looks nice and clumpy from your pic.

      When it comes out of the tray it looks a bit like flapjack, so you can crumble it up into what ever size bits you like!
