A healthy seed and berry granola with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, chia seeds, hemp hearts and cinnamon. Making your own granola is fun and easy!


  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (I used GF)
  • 1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 cup goji berries
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup*
  • 1/4 cup sunbutter or tahini, optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat, or lightly grease with coconut oil.

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add maple syrup, sunbutter/tahini and vanilla. Mix until well coated.

Spread granola, in a single layer, on baking sheet.

Place in oven and bake for 30- 35 minutes, stirring the mixture every 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. If using two baking sheets, you may even like to switch their positions in the oven once after stirring. If using a smaller baking dish such as a 9 × 9 or 11 × 13, bake for up to 1 hour or so, or until golden throughout. Be sure to stir the mixture every 15 minutes or so.

Once done, remove from oven and let cool, granola will harden as it cools.

Makes 4 cups.

Store in a covered container on the counter for up to 1 month. 


Feel free to add 1/4 cup or so unsweetened shredded coconut to the dry mixture as well.

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT: I love my Silpat or these parchment liners for lining this rimmed baking sheet.
