Homemade healthy granola

I have been making this homemade granola fresh every morning for as long as I can remember. Preparing it this way, rather than using shop bought granola, I can be sure there are no extra unwanted ingredients in my morning grains.

I used to add some agave syrup to my yoghurt to make it sweeter as I am not a big fan of yoghurt. But I have minimised my sugar intake over the course of the past few years and couldn’t imagine adding sweeteners any more.

As oats very often create a reaction in people with coeliac disease after switching to a gluten free diet, I too had to look for alternatives for a few weeks while my body was getting rid of gluten. So I missed my favourite breakfast option a lot during this time.

Also, this is an absolutely good alternative for you to have a healthy but fulfilling breakfast if you don’t fancy a soggy porridge.

A healthy and fulfilling breakfast option for those who can tolerate oats on a gluten free diet. A good alternative for those who don’t fancy porridge as well. Add your favourite berries, fruit, dried fruit, nuts or frozen berries.


  • 8 g unsalted butter

  • 50 g gluten free oats

  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • For a full breakfast add:
  • 75g Greek style yogurt

  • 0.5 tsp chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp goji berries

  • a handful of fresh blueberries

  • 2-3 fresh local strawberries or blueberries


  • Heat a large frying pan on medium heat with the butter until it melts.
  • Spread the butter and add the gluten free oats as a thin layer, add the pumpkin seeds to toast them as well.
  • Mix the ingredients and toast for 5 mins or until golden brown.
  • In the meantime mix the yoghurt with chia seeds and goji berries so they soak up the liquid and become soft and ready to eat.
  • Now that the oats have cooled for a few minutes they can be added to the bowl alongside the fresh berries.
