Date & Golden Berry Granola

Written By Kayla Seah

I think this might be the third or fourth granola recipe I’ve shared on the blog. I’m constantly alternating my original recipe depending on whats in my pantry and I figured it’s become a tradition to share the new alternative. This version might be the most appropriate for autumn with notes of pumpkin pie and a nice tartness from the golden berries. The best thing about granola is just having fun with the whole process; throw in a bit of this, a dash of that, and pop it in the oven. A batch of this makes the perfect hostess gift and any cold morning a tad bit better. 


Date + Golden Berry Granola

3 cups rolled oats (gluten free for GF eaters)

1/4 cups walnuts or pecans

1/2 cup golden berries 

1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped

1/2 cup flax seed

1/3 cup honey 

1/4 coconut oil 

2 tbsp. maple syrup 

1 tsp. cinnamon 

1/4 tsp. nutmeg 

1/4 tsp. ground ginger 

1/4 tsp. ground cloves 

1/4 tsp. ground allspice 

1/4 tsp. salt 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mix together oats and flax seeds. Set aside the dry fruit, you won’t be adding this until the end. In a small bowl whisk together all the spices. 

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the coconut oil, honey and maple syrup together. Whisk in spice mixture and remove from heat. Pour wet ingredients over oat mixture and mix well with a large wooden spoon.
Spread granola mixture evenly onto a baking sheet. If it’s too much for one baking sheet, you can bake it in two batches. Bake granola for 25-30 minutes, stirring at the halfway point. In the last 5 minutes add nuts; this avoids burning them during baking. Once golden brown, remove from oven and mix in dried fruit. (Adding the dried fruit in at this point avoids hardening them during baking.) Let granola cool, it will get crispy as it cools.

Enjoy over yogurt, with almond milk, or grab a handful for a quick snack!
