Recipe: South African Raisin and Three-Seed Granola

1 MIN READ • 31st March 2023

Bought granola can be surprising high in sugar and fat, so why not make your own healthier version? It’s packed with fibre and healthy fats, and it tastes so good!

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
Enough granola for 15 servings


250g jumbo porridge oats
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
50g linseeds
50g soft brown sugar
2tbsp groundnut oil
100g hazelnuts or almonds, roughly chopped
200g South African raisins
Fresh fruit, to serve
Natural yogurt or milk
Clear honey, to drizzle


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, fan oven 180°C, Gas Mark 6.
2. Mix together the porridge oats, seeds, sugar, groundnut oil and nuts. Spread out onto a large baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, turning the mixture twice during the cooking time. Cool completely.
3. Stir the South African raisins into the mixture, then transfer to an airtight container and store for up to 1 month.
4. To serve, spoon some granola into a bowl and top with fresh fruit. Serve with natural yogurt and/or milk, and drizzle with a little clear honey.

Cook’s tip: The slow-burn carbs in this granola should keep you feeling satisfied throughout the morning, without the need for snacks
