I was never a big fan of granola and cereals in general. It almost felt like eating a dessert, lol. Until I adapted this recipe from Smitten Kitchen to my taste and then it kind of evolved into this vegan version. Needless to say its totally modifiable and adaptable. And most important, super, super easy.



250gm rolled oats

40gm shredded coconut

40gm coconut flakes

2tbs olive oil

60ml maple, rice, date or agave syrup

flax egg (2tbs ground flaxseed + 4-5tbs water, let it stand 5 min)

pinch of sea salt

1/2tsp cinnamon

orange zest of one whole orange

100gm of walnuts, almond, pecans or any seeds for a nut-free option

200gm of raisins, cranberries, cherries or any other dried berries or fruits


Preheat your oven to 150C. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl, except fruit. Whisk the flax egg with sweetener, oil, and zest. Add the dry mixture in and combine thoroughly. Spread it on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper and bake until golden brown and dry to the touch. Cool, it completely then add dry fruit and store in an airtight container. It will keep for a couple of weeks in the pantry and a lot longer in the freezer.

Hey there! I’m Victoria. I always thought of my diet as "healthy" until I learned about plant based lifestyle. It opened doors to so much more variety of foods I never had the chance to enjoy. The countless benefits it provides for us and the environment. It simply is the best diet for our health and the health of our planet! My goal is to inspire people to eat healthy foods without the feeling of depravation. Why plant based?
