Cardamom, Orange & Honey Granola



  • 1/4 C canola oil
  • 4-6 Tbsp. honey, depending on how sweet you like it
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom (1 1/2 if you love it like I do!)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 3 C gluten rolled oats
  • 1/2 C finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 C finely chopped prunes or dried pears
  • 3/4 C raw nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, chopped brazil, pecan, or a mixture)
  • 2 Tbsp. flax seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Zest of one large orange


  1. Preheat your oven to 180˚C and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. (You can make this recipe raw if you have a food dehydrator, just set the temp on low and let it dry for a couple days)
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the oil, honey, orange juice, salt and cardamom. Heat on low and stir well.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir until well mixed.
  5. Dump the whole lot out onto the parchment paper and spread out evenly.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring once about midway through cooking.
