Hey i tried your recipe. Hands down the best recipe for granola. My son absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. I didn’t have pecans and maple syrup so i substituted with coconut shavings, almonds and honey. Definitely will make a big batch again. Thanks once again

Hi Gemma,
Delicious recipe….substituted pecans for salted peanuts and omitted the extra salt…..saved to favourites ❤️ Love your recipes….made lemon curd ice cream after making both the lemon curd and condensed milk…I’m sure if I kept a cow I could make double cream and hard cheese…using your recipes of course! Love your videos too….

Just made your granola recipe but used walnuts and almonds instead of pecans and used coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. Everything else the same. It tastes great

This is by far the best granola I’ve ever had. I have made it a few times now for my family. I make a batch with the pecans,coconut and pumpkin seeds for me and my husband… and a batch of just the coconut with no nuts for the kids! They love it. I’m just curious tho..would it be considered a healthy granola (or is it considered high in sugar)? Thanks so much!

I am so excited to make the homemade granola but the only problem is that i only have instant cooking oats. Will that help?

Can Old Fashioned Oats be used in place of rolled oats?

Hi Gemma,
I am a newbie to your site. Bumped into it accidentally through Youtube. Absolutely loving the outcome! I am about to try your granola. Is coconut an absolute must in this recipe? Is their a substitute?

TIA

Very good recipe. Received lots of compliments from friend and family. I had doubt’s about the dried coconut in this recipe, but this ingredient is necessary to bring the flavour to the next level. A must try recipe. Will be trying the granola bar recipe very soon. Thank you Emma.

I’ve made this recipe several times. Made it again this morning to have with my yogurt. Really good. Will say though that I turn my granola every 7 mins until done. I’m usually done in about 30 mins. Otherwise the granola will start to burn. Just eye it along the way.
