  • 25g pepitas
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  • Preheat your oven to 175c and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • In a bowl add in the dry ingredients and stir the mixture until well combined.
  • Then, add in the maple syrup and olive oil and stir through again, coating the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  • Next, tip the mixture on to the lined baking tray and spread the mixture evenly over the tray.
  • Bake the granola for 4 minutes then remove from the oven and stir, breaking up any clumps.
  • Stir through the shredded coconut and return to the oven to bake for another 4 minutes.
