A delicious recipe for homemade crunchy Thermomix Granola that's so simple to make. Just mix everything together in the Thermomix, then toast for half an hour and it's ready to be enjoyed or stored for later.
There are hundreds of granola recipes out there but this one is really simple. It's made with oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, raisins, maple syrup for sweetness, cinnamon for spice and some coconut oil to give it a lovely crunch. You could always add some nuts for extra goodness or some orange rind and juice, the possibilities are endless.
The cereal aisle in the supermarket is flooded with granola boxes, which are usually over laden with added sugar and very expensive. This recipe does have maple syrup but according to some it does have a few health benefits over the refined stuff.
I love it served with just almond milk, or jazzed up with yogurt and fresh berries. Once made, the granola can be stored in an airtight container in the pantry for a few weeks.

Can I use olive oil or grape seed oil?
Grape seed oil has a very mild flavour so should be ok to use in the granola without affecting the taste.
I probably wouldn't use olive oil as it's quite strong and the flavour could come through in the granola.
I have been making granola in my Thermomix for over five years. I saw this recipe which was more direct and it is absolutely delicious.
Thank you Janice for sharing. I'm so glad you liked it! Vickix
Made some today!!
Easy & delicious!
That's great to hear Mazidah! I'm glad it worked out well for you. Vicki.
Have you any cheese and leek recipes
Hi Elizabeth, I don't at the moment but you might find some on the Thermomix recipe community website. Vicki.
I use butter instead of coconut oil, and instead of the seeds I add 60g of cashews, 60g of macadamias and 70g of peanuts when the maple syrup and spices are added. This chops them up and it’s ready to add the oats and I use dried chopped mixed fruit 🙂
Delicious recipe! Thank you 💗
That sounds like a great combo Angela. Thank you for sharing.😋
