Awesome granola dust

BT Toronto | posted Monday, Oct 26th, 2015

Mornings will be amazingly fast and convenient with this epic megamix of brilliant ingredients from Chef Jamie Oliver, giving us loads of nutritional benefits from the nuts, seeds, oats, and fruit.

Awesome granola dust


  • 10 cups rolled oats
  • 8 oz raw unsalted mixed nuts, such as walnuts, Brazils, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, cashews
  • 3 1/2 oz mixed seeds, such as chia, poppy, sunflower, sesame, flaxseed, pumpkin
  • 8 oz unsweetened mixed dried fruit, such as blueberries, cranberries, sour cherries, mango, apricots, figs, sultanas
  • 3 tablespoons quality cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground coffee
  • 1 large orange


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the oats, nuts, and seeds in your largest roasting pan. Toss together and roast for 15 minutes, stirring halfway. Stir the dried fruit, cocoa, and coffee into the mix, finely grate over the orange zest, then, in batches, simply blitz to a rough powder in a food processor, tipping it into a large airtight jar as you go for safekeeping.

To serve, you can have loads of fun—the simplest way is a scant 1/2 cup of granola dust per person, either with cold cow’s, goat’s, soya, nut, or oat milk or 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and a handful of fresh fruit (3 oz is one of our 5-a-day).

You can make porridge by adding a scant 1/2 cup of granola dust to 3/4 cup of milk, then top with fresh fruit, and this ratio also works for a smoothie—I like to chuck 1 ripe banana and 1 handful of frozen raspberries into the mix too. It’s even a great base for pancakes—simply beat 2 heaping tablespoons of granola dust with 1 heaping tablespoon of whole-grain self-rising flour, 1 mashed banana, and 1 egg, then cook as normal. And in winter, try a hot drink—heat a scant 1/4 cup of granola dust with 3/4 cup of your favorite milk to your desired consistency.
