Coconut Chia Granola

Deliciously crunchy clusters of healthy granola, boosted with chia seeds and flavoured with salty coconut flakes | oil free | refined sugar free | vegan | paleo | gluten free (if using gf oats)


  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats gluten free if required
  • 1/2 cup oat flour see notes
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup raw cashews roughly ground, see notes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1 cup rice malt syrup
  • 2/3 cup tahini
  • 1 tsp fair trade vanilla extract
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 140 and prepare two baking trays.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, oat flour, chia seeds, cashew meal and salt.

  2. To a small saucepan, add the rice malt syrup, tahini and vanilla. Gently warm over a low heat and stir to combine. If your tahini is quite thick and you don't need the granola to be oil free you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil to thin the mixture a little.

  3. Once mixture is liquid and combined, pour it over the oats and stir well until all the oat mixture is covered.

  4. Pour the granola onto the baking trays, making sure not to over fill and don't spread too much - we want the oats to clump a bit and create those awesome clusters. Place baking trays in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes. Check your granola after 20 minutes and give it a little stir around for even baking (it is meant to be soft, it won't harden until it has cooled).

  5. Once your granola is golden brown, take it from the oven and let it cool on the trays. When it has cooled, pour over the coconut flakes and mix them into your granola. Transfer to a well sealed jar and store in the pantry. Enjoy!
