What to do

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with baking paper.

  • 2. In a large bowl stir together oats, buckwheat, pecans, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, salt, and spices until well mixed.

  • 3. In a small jug whisk together olive oil, honey and vanilla extract.

  • 4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix carefully with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are thoroughly coated.

  • 5. Spread granola over the lined baking sheet and press down slightly with the back of the spoon to encourage some clumping.

  • 6. Bake in pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes. Check and stir every 10 minutes to ensure the granola does not burn.

  • 7. During the last ten minutes of cooking stir in the dried dates and coconut and return granola to oven.

  • 8. Once cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving or storing.

  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

  • Tip: To make vegan, use maple syrup instead of honey
