  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup nuts and/ or seeds I used almonds and chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit I used unsweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp spices I used cinnamon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a large bowl mix the granola, nuts, seeds, cinnamon and salt together. 
  • To this mixture add the olive oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and mix well so that all the oats and nuts are well coated. 
  • Bake the granola in the oven for 20-22 minutes, stirring it halfway. At the end of 20 minutes it should be a nice golden brown color. 
  • Add the raisins and pop it back in the oven for 2 more minutes. 
  • Pull out the tray from the oven and let the granola completely cool. It will continue to cook as it cools down. 
  • Once completely cool, store in air tight container for 4 weeks.
