Energising Breakfast Granola

Not only is this incredibly tasty, it's packed full of healthy sources of energy, protein, fats and nutrients to prime you for a day's exercise. This breakfast goes to show you can, with a little thought, eat well in the outdoors. You can eat it with cold milk, or heat the milk on the colder mornings. Also use it as an excellent trail mix!


  • 560g rolled oats
  • 150g of your favourite seeds or nuts
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 115ml melted coconut oil or olive oil
  • 115ml maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g of your favourite dried fruit
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 2 tsp powdered milk and water when at camp

What you'll need

  • Baking tray
  • Greaseproof paper
  • Large bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Airtight jar


Preheat the oven to 200°C, or 190°C for fan assisted. Line a large, rimmed baking tray with greaseproof paper.

In a large bowl combine the oats, nuts, seeds, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine.

Pour in the oil, maple syrup or honey and vanilla extract. Mix again to coat everything then pour into the baking tray. Flatten with the back of a spoon until evenly spread out.

Bake for around 20 to 30 minutes, stirring halfway. It’s ready when it looks golden brown. Allow to cool completely (this is important as it will crisp up). Break up with your hands, leaving bigger chunks if you prefer. Keeps for 2 weeks in an airtight jar or for 3 months in the freezer; it’s handy to freeze in one portion sized servings.

When camping, pour some water in a bowl and stir in the powdered milk. You can heat the milk if you prefer. Pour in your granola and enjoy!
