Healthy breakfast with homemade granola and Oxalis

Granola is a combination of unprocessed oat flakes, nuts and seeds that you roast in the oven. You can vary to your heart’s content and make the mixture you prefer.
Combine the granola with fresh yoghurt or curd cheese, fruit and the fresh apple-like taste of Oxalis triangularis flowers and leaves.

granola en oxalis - recept met eetbare bloemen      


6 tablespoons of honey (maple syrup or agave nectar is fine too)

6 tablespoons of molten coconut oil

300 g oat flakes

150 g pumpkinseeds

150 g sunflower seeds

150 g dried cranberries

150 g raisins

100 g hazelnuts (walnuts or almonds are nice too)

Oxalis triangularis flowers and leaves

fresh fruit

baking paper


Preheat the oven to 170 °C. 

Coarsely chop the hazelnuts.

Mix the hazelnuts, honey, oil, oat flakes and seeds in a bowl.

Sprinkle the mixture over a baking tray covered with baking paper and roast this for approx. 30 minutes until crunchy. Turn every 10 minutes.

Take the granola out of the oven when it is nicely golden brown. Allow it to cool off entirely on a grill for 1 hour.

(Please note: the granola will only become really crunchy when it is cooled off completely).

Mix the cold granola with the raisins and cranberries.

Store in a closed (preserving) jar. You can keep the granola maximally 2 weeks.

To vary, you can also add a handful of coarsely grated coconut flakes or dried apples.

A dash of cinnamon or cardamom is nice too!
