Healthy gluten free granola! Made with nutrient dense nuts, seeds and coconut, this recipe is grain free and paleo friendly.

I use a dehydrator to make this recipe as I soak the nuts the night before which makes them easier to digest (leaving you feel lighter) and the very low heat from the dehydrator maintains the nutrients whilst providing a crunchy and delicious muesli. I use a Sedona Dehydrator with metal trays. The recipe is grain free and refined sugar free and rich in good fats and provides a source of plant-based protein.

Prep Time 8 hours
Cook Time 10 hours
Total Time 18 hours


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raw macadamias
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/2 cup organic shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted tbsp
  • 2 Tbsp natural sweetener of choice (honey, maple, rice malt; optional) tbsp
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder (or good quality vanilla extract)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup organic dried fruit of choice (optional)


  • Soak your nuts and seeds overnight in seperate bowls with enough water to cover. Soak hard nuts (almonds, macadamias for 6- 8 hours and softer nuts and seeds (walnuts, sunflower seeds and pepitas for 4-6 hours).
  • Drain and rinse soaked nuts and seeds very well. Drain well and place onto paper towel to absorb remaining water
  • Transfer half of the nuts and seeds to a food processor or blender to roughly pulse to chop (this step is optional but is great to give a variety of texture to the granola).
  • In a large mixing bowl combine chopped nuts and seeds, whole nuts and seeds, coconut, coconut oil, natural sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Transfer granola onto the dehydrator trays. Spread evenly across trays over one even layer each. Place into your dehydrator on low setting for 12-18 hours until crisp or on a higher setting for 8-10 hours. (Your dehydrator will provide options).
  • Once you are happy with the crispness of the granola allow to cool. Mix through dried fruit and store in air tight glass containers for freshness.
  • Serve as is, with fruit, yoghurt or plant-based milk.Notes: You can swap nuts and seeds around to liking.
  • You can also add flavours such as cacao powder with your natural sweetener.
