Home-made granola is as simple as anything to throw together. Wayan Kresna Yasa’s go-to recipe will super-charge your mornings.

Preparation time: 20-30 minutes, cooking time: 3-4 hours


This is Potato Head’s breakfast granola – inspired by the States and tuned for the tropics. “I tried granola for the first time when I was living in the U.S.,” says Potato Head’s executive chef Wayan Kresna Yasa. “So, the inspiration comes from there.” 

It’s simple to make, stores well and is totally dairy-free. “The reason I use canola oil is to keep it vegan and to keep a lighter texture,” Kresna Yasa says. “The olive oil adds an earthy flavor and also keeps the ingredients crisp.” 

Serve it with fresh-cut fruit and plain yoghurt or sprinkle a couple of tablespoons over a smoothie bowl to make it sparkle. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
130 ml canola oil
130 ml olive oil
80 ml honey or maple syrup
5 cups rolled oats
5 cups spelt flakes


1 ⅛ cup sunflower seeds
⅔ cup sesame seeds
⅔ cup cashew nuts
⅔ cup almonds
½ cup flax seeds

Method
Preheat oven to 200℉ or 135°C. In a saucepan, gently heat canola oil, olive oil and honey or maple until lukewarm. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl, then add the warm oil from the saucepan and mix well.

Spread the granola in a thin layer across a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 3 to 4 hours, depending on how toasted you like it. Stir the mixture every 10 minutes until it’s evenly cooked. Set aside to cool, store it in a tight seal jar, and try not to snack on the whole batch in one go.

Kitchen hacks
– Store in an air-tight container for a month or in the freezer for about 6 months.
– If you don’t have canola oil, use vegetable oil.
– Cashew nuts can be substituted for pecans.
