Val's Olive Oil Granola is a harmonious blend of flavors and textures, promising a delightful and wholesome start to your day. Join Val on this culinary adventure, and let the tantalizing aroma of oats and olive oil guide you toward a breakfast experience that is truly extraordinary:


  • 2 cups of oats
  • 3 tablespoons puffed amaranth
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • handful walnuts
  • handful macadamia nuts handful dried mulberries or figs
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon (or more if you like)
  • 2 teaspoons cardamom
  • 1/2 vanilla syrup or powder
  • bit of rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons Peranzana extra virgin olive oil


  1. First you take a skillet and toast the nuts (you can use whatever nuts you prefer) on medium heat. Toast until they get dark brown.

  2. Add your oats, puffed amaranth and pumpkin seeds and stir for about 10 minutes to ensure that everything gets toasted equally.

  3. When the oats get a bit of color, turn down the heat and add your spices and rosemary.

  4. Mix and add your dried fruit.

  5. In a separate small pan put honey and olive oil together, heat it up and stir a bit. When you start to see bubble take it off the heat and add it to your oat. Mix it until it all comes together.

  6. Allow the granola to cool completely before transferring it into a clean, airtight glass jar. 

  7. Simply scoop out your desired portion, pair it with your favorite yogurt or milk, and relish the fruits of your pre-planning – a delightful breakfast experience that's as effortless as it is delicious.


Val by suckerforcutefood suggests that this recipe works for oven granola or cast iron granola. She prefers cast iron because you can toast the nuts better and more flavorful!
