Sin free granola recipe

A pot of fat free apple and mango yoghurt landed on my doormat last week. I wasn’t particularly sure that I was going to like the flavour combination but it gave me an excuse to buy some luscious blueberries and make some healthy granola.

I love quick and easy recipes and this definitely falls into that category. Simply mix all of the ingredients in a big bowl and then bake in the oven.

A bowl of this granola makes for a very healthy breakfast. The sugar is substituted for maple syrup and honey, and, because there is no butter, it’s vegan too.


150g whole rolled oats
80ml maple syrup
1 tbsp runny honey
1 tbsp sesame seeds
25g sunflower seeds
25g pumpkin seeds
60ml vegetable oil


Pre heat the oven to 160 degrees c

1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined
2. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, tossing it every 10 minutes to prevent the edges from burning
3. To enjoy as a delicious healthy breakfast, layer the granola in a bowl or small glass with blueberries and fat free apple and mango yogurt (I used Onken)



  1. I was waiting for a rainy Sunday to make this. Today is that day and I am happy to say that it was as easy as you said it would be and it tastes delicious. Even my meat eating, granola hating Canadian boyfriend agrees – I think it was the maple syrup that won him over! Thank you.

      That’s so good to hear, thank you!! It is the maple syrup that makes it so good, im sure.
