I posted this about 12 months ago and have been spending some time refining the recipe. This is the new version!
The Wylde Kitchen “Good Morning Granola” will be for sale on the site soon if you don’t have the time to make this yourself. Stay tuned for updates!
I can’t get enough of it and make a batch every 2 weeks. It is so tasty and leaves you feeling full of energy and ready to get into the day. I make 2 versions – one with fruit and one without.

This feeds me every day for about 2-3 weeks - a small bowl a couple of times a week.
1 cup pecans
1 cup almonds
2 cups oats
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flaxseeds
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
3 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons cinnamon (ground)
1 cup sultanas
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup dried apricots (chopped)
1/2 cup dates (chopped)
What do I do now?
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
Roughly chop the pecans and almonds. Add them to a large mixing bowl with all the other dry ingredients and stir – do not add the sultanas or anything else at this stage (they will burn, I tried it – they burnt).
Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon on a low heat. Once dissolved add to the dry ingredients and stir. Place this mixture on a baking tray and bake for about 15-20 minutes stirring now and then so it doesn’t burn and cooks evenly. Once golden remove tray and cool completely.
Now add the sultanas, goji berries, cranberries, dried apricots etc
What else should I know?
You can add any dried fruit that you like to this mix – just make sure you do it AFTER cooking the oaty, nutty mix. Experiment with different nuts and fruits. Use the things you like to eat and see how it turns out.
Top with fresh berries or peaches or anything else you like.
This will last for about 4 weeks in an airtight container in the pantry.
