  • baking tray
  • mixing bowl


  • 100 g rolled oats
  • 100 g buckwheat flakes
  • 100 g quinoa flakes
  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 7 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 3 handfuls of pecan nuts
  • 2 handfuls of pumpkin seed
  • 2 handfuls of golden linseed
  • 2 handfuls of dried cranberry
  • 1 handful of dried blueberry


  • Preheat the oven at 160ºC/325ºF/gas 3.
  • Mix gently together the oats, quinoa flakes, buckwheat flakes, chia seeds and roughly chopped pecans.
  • Carefully stir in the oil and maple syrup until all ingredients are well blended together.
  • Tip the granola onto a large baking tray lined with a baking sheet. Spread a little as you would do with the top of a crumble. You do not want it too thin.
  • Bake for 20 mins. Mix & spread the granola a little bit more. Bake for another 20 mins or so (checking every 10 mins) until you get your optimal crunchiness. Switch off the oven and leave granola to "dry" inside for 2 hours or so.
  • Once cooled down, add the pumpkin seeds, linseeds, cranberries and blueberries. Store in an airtight container.
