Coconut Macadamia Granola

Mix up the grains, nuts and seeds in this recipe to make it your own. Just try to keep the total quantities the same.

If you don't want to use quite so much coconut oil, reduce the quantity to 1/2 cup.

Coconut oil can be substituted for macadamia oil. If substituting oils, reduce the amount in the recipe to 1/2 cup.

  • 3 cups rolled oats 300g
  • 1 cup rolled rye 130g
  • 1 cup rolled barley 120g
  • 1 1/2 cups macadamias chopped, 120g
  • 1 cup pecans chopped, 100g
  • 1 cup flaked coconut 65g
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 75g
  • 1/2 cup pepitas 70g
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil 180ml
  • 1/4 cup rice bran syrup 60ml
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 60ml
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Large pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 160C (140C fan forced).
  • Line two large trays with baking paper.
  • Place the rolled grains, nuts, sunflower seeds, pepitas, and coconut in a large bowl. Stir through to combine.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, place the coconut oil and the maple syrup and whisk to combine. Stir again to mix the spices through the grains.
  • Place the melted coconut oil, rice bran syrup and maple syrup into a small bowl or jug. Add the vanilla extract then stir until combined. The mixture will seem to thicken and emulsify.
  • Pour the liquids over the dry ingredients and stir until the muesli seems slightly damp.
  • Spread the mixture onto the lined trays.
  • Bake for about 30 - 40 minutes, stirring the edges of the mixture into the middle every 5 -10 minutes to ensure even baking.
  • Watch the muesli carefully towards the end of the baking time and check more frequently as it can burn easily.
  • When golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Store in an airtight container.
