Ingredients

  • 150 g/ 1 1/2 cups Jumbo Oats
  • 3/4 tsp Salt (fine)
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin spice
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin seeds
  • 28 g/ 1 oz pecan nuts (halved)
  • 28 g/ 1 oz Blanched almonds (halved)
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 4 1/2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 75 g/ 3oz Raisins
  • 50 g/ 2 oz Milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 170C/ 325F/ GM3 and line a baking tray with baking parchment
  • Weigh the oats, salt, spice, seeds and nuts into a large bowl. Stir to combine
  • Put the coconut oil & maple syrup into a small saucepan and heat gently until melted. Add the vanilla extract
  • Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and mix well. Tip onto the baking sheet and spread out
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then turn the oven down to 150C/ 300f/ GM2, gently turn the granola using a metal spoon and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes, turning halfway through the remaining cooking time. The granola should be golden and crisp (if not let cook for a few more minutes)
  • When cooked remove from the oven and sprinkle with the raisins and chocolate chips. Let sit for 1 minute, then gently and briefly toss the granola with a metal spoon - enough to spread the chocolate slightly, but avoid mixing it in vigorously
  • Let cool completely. Break up any large chunks of granola and store in an airtight jar for up to 1 month
