Homemade Granola with Hemp Seed Hearts
Shop-bought granola is often laced with sugar, but making a healthier, homemade version of this breakfast staple is as easy as 1,2,3. Our recipe makes use of Good Hemp Seed Hearts, which means you’ll get a protein-packed hit of energy in the morning. Pour Good Hemp Seed Milk over the crunchy goodness for a refreshing start to the day, or sprinkle it over our hemp heart ice cream for a treat.
Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
Put the oats, nuts, Good Hemp Seed Hearts and nibs into a large bowl and combine. In another bowl thoroughly mix the oil, syrup, salt and hot water.
Pour the liquid mixture into the oat mixture and combine thoroughly.
Spread the mixture out evenly onto a large flat baking tray and put in oven.
After 15 mins give the granola a good stir to ensure even browning and scrape any oats that are sticking off the bottom of the tray. Give the tray a good shake and put back into the oven.
Cook for a further 15 mins or until golden-brown.
Allow to cool before adding the dried fruit and storing in an airtight container.

Coconut Hemp Seed Granola
Perfectly crunchy and slightly sweet, this coconut hemp seed granola is a great way to add flavor and texture to a creamy bowl of yogurt but tastes fantastic by the handful, too! Made with hemp seeds and unsweetened coconut, it’s an easy recipe you’ll find yourself making again and again.
I’m not sure what it is, but I love surprising people with food. Whether it’s mailing a friend cookies for her birthday, bringing dinner to a neighbor who isn’t feeling well or showing up to a party with a jar of homemade granola for the hosts to enjoy the next morning, whipping up something homemade for someone I care about makes me smile. It feels like I’m putting thoughts of someone into action somehow. I cannot really explain it but hopefully this makes sense to at least one of you out there!
Years ago, I read something in a magazine about the “ultimate hostess gifts” and laughed because, um, I’m not that fancy. Hostess gifts? Does a bottle of wine count? (Yes, for the record.)
Though my friends and I absolutely do not expect to receive a hostess gift whenever we throw a casual party, I actually do love the idea of bringing something for the party planners to enjoy together the next morning. It’s not something I do regularly (I go the bottle of wine route at lot!) but if I have the time, I love whipping up a batch of homemade granola because it’s a treat that does not have to be enjoyed immediately and seems like something many people love.
About two weeks ago, I made a batch of granola with a hearty helping of hemp seeds for our family. Hemp seeds are very mild with a slightly nutty flavor and are a great source of protein, healthy fats (omega-3 and omega-6), magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron and vitamin E. I love incorporating them into smoothies and oatmeal, so why not granola!?
The end result was one of the most delicious batches of granola I’ve ever made! (A granola recipe definitely worthy of gifting!) I used a lot of “extras” in this coconut hemp seed granola so the oats, while present and tasty, were not the star of the show. The hemp seeds and toasted coconut took center stage and I quickly found myself eating the granola by the handful and looking for excuses to sprinkle it on top of anything remotely sweet.
The granola keeps well in an air-tight glass jar and can easily be customized to incorporate your favorite add-ins. Once the granola is cooled, feel free to toss in dried fruit or mini chocolate chips or leave it just the way it is… Simple, crunchy and delicious!Perfectly crunchy and slightly sweet, this coconut hemp seed granola tastes great by the handful or sprinkled on top of a bowl of creamy yogurt. ]]>
