My Dream Nutty Grain-Free Granola

Granola Dream

I have always been a fan of granola which is full of nuts and seeds. I hate it when there’s too much dry fruit or oats which aren’t crispy. I’m the one who searches for that one nut in the granola. When I was little, then I secretly ate all the nuts inside the granola and then left everything else in the package. Now I would leave all the grains and raisins there if my conscience could allow me to do that. That’s why I created my dream granola recipe. Full of nuts, seeds and coconut chips. I could eat this granola all day long.

Like always making the granola is something creative. You don’t have to strictly follow the recipe. I usually use all the possible ingredients I have in my cupboard and play around with them. Quite often I don’t even have to go to the store and I can just put together some of my favourites.

Nutty Grain-Free Granola


  • 2 dl raw cashews
  • 1 dl sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp linseeds
  • 1 dl raw desiccated coconut
  • 2,5 dl raw coconut chips
  • pinch of pink Himalayan salt
  • some ground vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp almond meal
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter
  • 1-2 tbsp honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 175° C/ 347° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (if you prefer you coconut lightly baked, then add it later (after baking rest of the granola for 5-7 minutes)).
  3. Stir in the wet ingredients (melted coconut butter and honey).
  4. Turn the granola out onto your pan, which is covered with baking paper. Spread it in an even layer.
  5. Bake for 5-7 minutes. After that stir the granola and bake another 5-7 minutes (add coconut if you didn’t add it the first place). The granola is ready when it´s lightly golden. Open the oven door and let it cool completely (don´t stir anymore). The granola will crisp up as it cools!
  6. Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature.
  7. Serve with natural unsweetened yoghurt or homemade nut milk and suitable seasonal berries and fruit or smoothie. Try not to eat it all at once. It´s really addictive!
