Print Recipe


  • 400 g rolled oats / jumbo oats I use certified gluten-free oats
  • 100 g peeled pistachio
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 100 g dried soft cranberries
  • ½ tsp orange essence or pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of sea salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 140ºC/120ºC fan oven.
  • In a large bowl mix together oats, pistachio and salt.
  • Add coconut oil and maple syrup into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until combined.
  • Spread the granola mixture on a large non-stick baking tray.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, gently stirring the mixture with a spatula every 15 mins or so. Do not over stir, as this prevents the granola clusters from forming.
  • Remove from the oven and mix in the dried cranberries. Return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes, until granola is golden and crunchy.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Break into clusters and enjoy for breakfast or as a snack during the day.
