Healthy Granola ingredients


Oat is a whole-grain cereal mainly grown in North America and Europe. It is a very good source of fiber and are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Nuts &/or Seeds

Nuts and seeds are healthy snack options. They’re usually high in a healthy type of fat (monounsaturated fat, omega-6 and omega-3) and are a good source of fiber, protein, vitamin E and magnesium.

You have plenty of nuts options including almonds, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts…

And plenty of seeds options including sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, hempseed, sesame seeds, …

Unrefined Oil

The oil will help the mix to crisp. I use extra virgin coconut oil because I love the taste. If you want your granola to be a little more on the savory side and/or if you’re watching your saturated fat intake, olive oil is a better choice!

Natural Sweetener

I love honey but you can also use maple or agave syrup.


For the spices you also have plenty of options such as cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, lavender, cardamon, anise, …

Dried Fruits

Dried fruit lends some extra sweetness and chewy texture. You still here have plenty of option depending on your taste: dates, raisins, cranberries, chopped dried apricots, dried cherries, dried pineapple, dried coconut, …

Other mix that can be added

Finally, you can also add citrus zest before cooking, chocolate crips after cooking or coconut flakes in the middle of the cooking!
