Skin Loving Breakfast Granola

My slightly addictive skin-loving breakfast…

Granted if you have a nut allergy I apologise in advance as this isn’t going to be a great recipe for you.

This granola is my go-to breakfast! Sure I love eggs & smoked salmon but this is the mainstay of my weekday breakfast & we make at least one batch a week.

My husband is constantly amused at how much I heap into my bowl followed by ‘Are we nearly out of that again?!’ So I only hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Oh & see my notes at the bottom as to why this is also amazing for skin health too!

U & your Skin loving Granola:

Makes a ruddy great batch! Store in a large Kilner (Mason) jar.

  • 500 grams Rolled oats (the big ones)
  • 500 grams buckwheat flakes
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 50 grams Hazelnuts
  • 100 grams walnut pieces
  • 100 grams of almonds
  • 30 grams sunflower seeds
  • 30 grams of pumpkin seeds
  • 30 grams chia seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup

Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan, then add all of the other ingredients to it & combine well.

Spread out onto a non-stick baking tray (I line mine with parchment paper for ease of removal afterwards) & then bake for 15 mins on 180 degrees. Gently stir halfway through & check the nuts aren’t burning.

Serve with your choice of Greek yoghurt, almond milk, rice milk, blueberries, strawberries &/or 1/2 banana.



This granola is firstly packed with protein which is essential for the repairing building blocks of the skin. Secondly, the nuts & seeds provide a good chunk of the essential facts of Omega 3 & 6 that your skin needs to stay hydrated & to replenish the delicate, protective lipid barrier. These fats also reduce inflammation in the body making it vital for anyone with inflammatory skin issues such as Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema & premature Ageing.
