  • cup organic honey
  • cup organic MCT oil see note
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • ½ cup pecans or walnuts chopped
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup organic brown flax seeds
  • ¼ cup organic hemp seeds
  • 2 cups Barbara’s brown puffed rice crisps


  • Preheat the oven to 320°F/160°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, MCT oil, vanilla extract, salt, ginger and cinnamon until combined.
  • Add the oats, sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts, flaxseed, hemp and rice crisps to the bowl and stir until everything is coated in the honey-spice-oil mixture.
  • Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, or until the granola begins to just brown at the edges. Be careful not to leave it in the oven once it has browned, as the granola can get too brown, or burn, very quickly after this. If you are at or near sea level, check the granola at 30 minutes. 
  • Let it cool completely before serving. Serve with fresh fruit and non-dairy milk or kefir.
  • Store in covered containers or jars at room temperature. 


MCT oil stands for Medium-Chain Triglycerides and is considered the healthiest fraction of coconut oil. It’s liquid at room temperature, so very easy to mix into the other ingredients. It provides a light crispiness to this granola. Other neutral oils to consider are avocado oil or grapeseed oil.
