Ingredients

  • 400g / 4 cups rolled oats*
  • 150ml / 1/2 cup maple syrup**
  • 113g / 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 55g 1/2 cup chopped pecan nuts
  • 31g 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160C or 140C ( if using a fan oven)
  • Line large baking tray with parchment paper
  • Place oats, cinnamon, nuts, and seeds in a large bowl and mix it.
  • Put the butter and maple syrup in a small pan over low heat. Stir gently until the buter has melted and all comes together.
  • Pour wet ingredients over the dry ones and mix them to combine.
  • Spread the granola in the baking tray evenly and cook for about 10 min.
  • Take the tray out, mix and fold the granola ( press it down if you want more chunky bits ) and put it back in the oven for another 10 min or until the edges start browning up.
  • Take the granola out and let it cool down completely. Don't mix warm granola as it will break and separate the crunchy clusters.
  • Once cool, place the granola in an airtight container and use it within 1 month. Enjoy!
