Orange, Almond, Coconut Granola

A delicious and nourishing start to the day this Orange, Almond, Coconut Granola is one of my family's favourite breakfasts.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 28 serves

Ingredients

  • 800 g rolled oats (8 cups)
  • 280 g raw almonds (2 cups)
  • 200 g shredded coconut (2 cups)
  • 120 ml macadamia nut oil (½ cup)
  • 2 orange/s - zest and juice
  • 170 g rice malt syrup or maple syrup (½ cup)
  • 2 tsp vanilla - essence or paste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 160°C / 320°F (fan-forced).
  • In a food processor add 360g (4 cups) of the rolled oats and all of the almonds. Pulse until the almonds are chopped up (but not milled to a meal, you want chunks). Thermomix turbo function and check through the lid (about 5 quick pulses).
  • Place this and the rest of the oats and coconut into a large baking tray. It should form a thin layer (approx. 2cm deep) so use two baking trays if necessary.
  • Mix the macadamia oil, orange juice and orange zest, rice malt or maple syrup and vanilla together in a jug (or your food processor). Thermomix 30 seconds, speed 4.
  • Pour over the dry mix and give it a good stir so that all the dry ingredients are coated.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Stir well and bake another 15 mins. Repeat if necessary until the mixture is crisp and dry.
  • Stir again and allow to cool completely.

Store

  • In an airtight container in a cool pantry for up to a month.

Serve

  • With orange segments (and fresh strawberries), your favourite milk and unsweetened yoghurt.

Notes

Nut-free

Replace the almonds with sunflower seeds and the macadamia nut oil with coconut oil.

Gluten/grain-free

Replace the rolled oats with a gluten and grain-free rolled seed like rolled (flaked) quinoa or millet.

Coconut-free

Replace the coconut with slivered or flaked almonds.

Fructose friendly

Choose rice malt as your sweetener (you can also reduce the orange juice if you need to).

Cardamon infused

Add a tablespoon of ground cardamon if it's flavour you enjoy (I personally love it).

Add cranberries or goji

This is lovely with dried cranberries or goji berries too.
