Jumbo Oat Granola

I was somewhat put off by this recipe when I saw it first because it had so many different ingredients,but to my surprise my local German discounter stocked almost all of the ingredients (which lets be honest is much simpler than going from shop to find specialised ingredients). The honey acts as a preservative so this keeps for weeks at a time.

Makes 1.4kg

500g Jumbo rolled oats
125mls Sunflower Oil
200g Honey
100g Flaked almonds or chopped walnuts
100g chopped cashew nuts
50g Desiccated coconut
100g Pumpkin seeds
100g Sunflower Seeds
1 Tsp vanilla extract
200g - 300g Dried Fruit (Raisins, Pineapple, Sultanas, Apricots, Cranberries)

Preheat the oven to 150C degrees. In a small saucepan (or using a microwave), heat the oil, honey and vanilla extract until warm. Put the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the dried fruit in a large bowl and mix well.

Add in the oil and honey mixture and stir well to ensure it evenly mixed. Spread out on a large baking trays and bake in the oven until golden brown (approx 30 minutes).


Stir in the oven every 5 minutes or so to brown evenly. Allow to cool fully and add the dried fruit. Store in an airtight container.
