Granola with lemon and prunes. Picture / Eleanor Ozich.

I felt the first true snap of cold this week. It only made sense to warm the oven, and roast a tray or two of sweet, golden granola. The kind that's scented with citrus, speckled with soft, black prunes. I add sweetness in the form of amber coloured honey, tossed with a little melted coconut oil. It is this delightful combination that sends wafts of caramel throughout the house. 


• 2 cups oats 
• 1 cup shredded coconut
• 2 tsp pure vanilla bean paste
• zest of one large lemon
• 1 cup pumpkin seeds
• 3 Tbsp chia seeds
• 2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
• 2 Tbsp runny honey
• a pinch of sea salt
• 1 cup prunes, diced

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.

2. Combine all ingredients except for the prunes in a large mixing bowl. Toss until combined, then spread the mixture out evenly on a tray lined with baking paper. 

3. Roast in the oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the colour is that of butterscotch.

4. Leave to cool, then toss with the chopped prunes. 

5. Will keep for up to 3 months stored in a large glass jar or airtight container.
