Total time
Serves: 1 batch
  • 100 g of hazelnuts
  • 100 g of almonds
  • 100 g sunflower seeds
  • 30 g pumpkin seeds
  • 50 g of shredded flaxseed (preferably freshly shredded, otherwise store-bought ground flax)
  • 2 tablespoons of native coconut oil
  • 80 grams of apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • the peel of 1 organic orange
  1. Preheat the oven to 160 ° C circulating air (180 ° C top and bottom heat).
  2. Chop the nuts roughly or pulse briefly in a food processor. Mix the chopped nuts, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and shredded flax seeds in a mixing bowl.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a small pan on low heat. Add the apple sauce, cacao powder, cinnamon and cardamom and mix everything to a sticky paste.
  4. Add the paste to the dry ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon so that everything is well covered with the sticky mix. Spread the granola on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and roast for about 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the baking tray, loosen the granola a little and stir. Turn the baking sheet around, and bake for another 5-10 minutes in the oven.
  6. Just before the end, add the orange peel and spread it over the granola. Roast everything for another 1-2 minutes until the orange peel becomes fragrant.
  7. Remove the granola from the oven, allow to cool completely and store in an airtight glass container.
