Health benefits
A wholesome breakfast such as this is so important to ensure good mood, energy, concentration and focus throughout the day. There is nothing in a cereal box that is good enough, so spend a little time every now an then and make a batch of  granola to keep in the pantry for a great start to the day.

Makes approx. 8 cups of cereal

3 cups nuts (I used almonds, macadamias, pecans, cashews and hazelnuts)
¼ cup sesame seeds
2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground
2 teaspoons cardamon, ground
1 teaspoon ginger powder
½ teaspoon cloves, ground
Pinch sea salt
6 tablespoons sweetener (maple syrup, honey or rice malt syrup)
3 cups rolled oats (or you could use quinoa and millet flakes for gluten-free)
2 cups of shredded coconut


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180℃.
  2. In a small bowl mix all of the spices to make a chai spice mix.
  3. Take two baking trays.
  4. Line one of the baking trays with a silicon coated baking paper (I use ‘If You Care’ brand). To this add your nuts and sesame seeds and toast in your preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and add half the spice mix. Toss to coat the nuts.
  6. Now drizzle with 3 tablespoons of sweetener so that most of the nuts and seeds are coated.
  7. In the second baking tray place the oats (or GF flaked grain), coconut, remaining spice mix and toss to mix.
  8. Drizzle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of sweetener.
  9. Bake both trays for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the nuts to cool completely.
  10. Stir the oat/coconut mix and bake for another 10 minutes or until toasted to your liking.
  11. Once they are cool, break the nuts up into clusters and mix through the toasted oats/coconut.
  12. Store in an airtight container for up to a month.

Chai spiced granola 3

    This sounds amazing! I’m guessing the cloves should be ground too, like the other spices?

    • Yep, just corrected, thanks Kerryn G x

        Yum, added to my shopping list so I can make this weekend. Love your recipes Georgia, thank you!

  • Leisa

    I made your Nourishing Toasted Muesli recently (love it!) which has oil in the ingredients. This recipe (can’t wait to make!) has no added oil. I’m a little confused about why one has oil and the other doesn’t. The other ingredients and methods are otherwise similar.

    • Feel free to add oil to this also – this is just a different texture and style of muesli G x

  • Bec

    Just made your delicious granola and am so happy I have yummy & healthy alternative to the sugar laden granolas out there!
    I LOVE chai spices, so personally I would add more of the spice mix to the granola, but otherwise with a bowl of yoghurt it’s toasted goodness!!

    • Glad you enjoyed it Bec – I’m with you, the more spice the better, especially chai inspired G x

  • Emma

    This is soooo delicious Georgia. Though I used whole cloves, which was a mistake as my daughter and I ate one whole. Bit overpowering in flavor. Keep up the amazing work!

    • Oh no – a whole clove is pretty intense. Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed Emma G x

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“Thank you very much for your awesome website & facebook page posts, you have motivated & inspired me heaps!” Fiona

“Just discovered your site 3 weeks ago, its been a great help with kids lunches for back to school, thanks so much!” Ange

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
