Here’s a delicious, easy, fiber-rich Homemade Granola that’s perfect for breakfast or a post-workout snack!



  • 4 cups rolled oats*
  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews*
  • ⅔ cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup  coconut flakes
  • ½ teaspoon  ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 275° F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. Roughly chop cashews to thirds and halves. 
  3. In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and mix until combined. 
  4. Next add water, olive oil, and toss until evenly distributed.  The granola will look slightly moist.
  5. Dump granola on the tray and flatten into an even layer. Do not press down firmly and leave air space as much as possible.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, then stir to redistribute granola and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring 2-3 times until granola is a dark golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.  Granola can be stored for up to 1 month.


*Use old-fashioned rolled oats, not quick cook or steel cut.

*Always use raw cashews and untoasted coconut or they will over cook and become bitter during the baking process.
