Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 4 cups (about 500g) of your favourite granola ingredients - rolled oats, sunflower seeds, pepitas, sliced almonds, shredded coconut, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed, etc
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ⅓ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp rice bran oil, or similar
  • 2 tbsp honey, rice malt syrup or maple syrup (optional)
  • 75g dried fruit, currants, raisins or chopped crystallised ginger (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 120C.
  2. In a bowl, mix your dry granola ingredients, cinnamon, ground ginger and salt.
  3. Add applesauce, oil and sweetener (if using) and using your hands, mix through so everything is coated.
  4. Bake on a tray covered in parchment paper for approx 90 minutes or until light golden brown, making sure to stir every 20-30 minutes as the outer edges will cook faster than the middle.
  5. Allow to cool on the tray, then add dried fruit (if using). Store in an airtight container.
