What is the difference between Granola and Museli?

How was your Christmas? Fabulous, I hope! I wanted my 1st post Christmas recipe to be one that inspires good health and nutrition as I think we all feel a bit like we have been non-stop eating for a few indulgent days!

For ages now, I have been regularly having a kombucha and a yoghurt with granola for breakfast once a week. When I looked more closely at the ingredients I realised that I could whip up my own granola in no time at all with ingredients that I love! Of course as soon as I did that, I had to share it with you!!

In Australia we tend to call granola ‘museli‘. There are heaps of versions like toasted museli and museli that has dried fruit bits in them. I don’t absolutely love those ones though, so in creating this recipe, I wanted to start  with my all time favourite nuts and get creative from there.

The best thing about this homemade coconut granola recipe is that I put a pinch of cinnamon in there and then the house smells amazing when you are cooking it!!

Trust me, with a jar of this in your pantry, your breakfasts will be sorted for weeks!

Homemade Coconut Granola questions answered:

About the recipe:

  • This is the PERFECT granola for an everyday breakfast
  • The recipe is VEGETARIAN (you could substitute agave syrup for the honey to make it VEGAN)
  • We base the recipe on a toasted granola, but leave the coconut till the very last minute so it keeps its natural colour and flavour
  • There is no egg, dairy or cheese in the recipe

To answer your questions:

  1. The granola is best served fresh from the oven!
  2. I recommend serving it with yoghurt or milk
  3. The recipe involves using just one bowl!!
  4. This is a SUPER EASY dish to pull together

Let’s  whip up this dish together…here is how to make our Homemade Coconut Granola with step by step photos:

I prefer to add the coconut after the rest of the granola has begun toasting as it keeps it’s pretty white colour and delicious taste!

How to Serve Coconut Granola

You may want to stand and eat the granola fresh from the oven and I get that….it is SO GOOD!! But a serving suggestion is using it to top fresh yoghurt or adding it to a bowl with some milk….both ways taste FABULOUS!!

If the neighbours come a knocking, it is because the smell wafting from your oven drew them in, trust me, it is delicious!

Homemade Coconut Granola

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup natural almonds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon


Homemade Coconut Granola

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees F 82.2 degrees C. Line a baking tray with paper. 
  • Add oats, almonds, sunflower seeds and pepitas to a mixing bowl and stir to combine
  • Add cinnamon and coconut oil, stir again
  • Add honey and mix till the mixture is consistency sticky 
  • Tip granola onto the baking paper and bake for 5 minutes 
  • Remove from oven and top with coconut flakes 
  • Return tray to oven for 3 minutes 
  • Serve with yoghurt or milk 



  • I use rolled oats as they are much better for you than quick oats
  • For a VEGAN option, use agave syrup instead of honey for the sweetener and coconut yoghurt or almond milk as the ingredient to add it to
  • The coconut will toast VERY QUICKLY so keep an eye on the oven during this time. As soon as it starts to turn a light brown shade, remove the tray from the oven and the heat will continue to cook it for a further couple of minutes
  • If you like really toasted coconut you can add it at the beginning. But it will turned brown and won't have the same flavour to it. Most store bought granolas with coconut cook it all at the same time
  • The granola is best stored in an air-tight storage container in the pantry, or in small ziplock bags in the freezer

I think I’d like this homemade muesli (yes we call it meusli too!) with yoghurt rather than milk. It looks and sounds delicious!

Adrianne December 28, 2018 - 11:21 am

Thanks Jacqueline, yes, the yoghurt was a perfect combination.

Beautiful! I used to make my own granola. It wasn’t very popular. I didn’t put goodies in it, it was pretty much grains, seeds, and nuts. Yours is a much better recipe!!! Happy New Year!

Adrianne January 1, 2019 - 3:54 am

Thanks Mimi! Hope you had a great New Year. I have been laying low and relaxing. I am happy with the crunch of this recipe combination! Cheers
