  • Instant Pot
  • Wooden spoon


Instant Pot Granola

  • 3 tbs coconut oil Note 1
  • 3 cups oats Note 2
  • 1 ½ cups almonds Note 3
  • 2 cups dates
  • 2 cups sunflower seeds
  • 1 ½ cups pepita seeds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder Note 4


Instant Pot Granola

  • Turn the Instant Pot on, press the Slow Cooker Button and let it heat for a minute.
  • Once the Instant Pot is heated a little add the coconut oil to the stainless steel bowl and let the oil melt.
  • Once the oil has melted add the oats, raw almonds, dates, pepitas, sunflower seeds and cinnamon then stir to combine.
  • Leave the granola to cook for 2 hours Note 5
  • After 2 hours, press the cancel button, then the Saute button Note 6
  • Saute the granola for 30 - 45 mins stirring regularly. Note 7
  • Transfer the granola to a baking dish and let cool
  • Serve with yoghurt and fruit.



  • Note 1 The coconut oil is the 1st ingredient added for this recipe. Let it melt (into liquid form) and then add the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Note 2 The oats can be quick or rolled oats, both work fine for this recipe! 
  • Note 3 All of the nuts and seeds are raw. We cook them during this process. So you are looking for 'natural nuts', ie not roasted, salted etc. 
  • Note 4 You will be able to find cinnamon power in the spices aisle of the supermarket. This is the raw powered cinnamon not the cinnamon sugar (easily confused). We don't want to use cinnamon sugar as it will add sugar to the recipe and the natural raw cinnamon gives great taste, no need for sugar also! 
  • Note 5 The setting is low so it won't burn, you can stir occasionally if you wish. 
  • Note 6 The saute mode is used to toast the granola so that it will be crunchy delicious once it has cooled. Keep an eye on it and stir regularly throughout this time (30 - 45 mins). 
  • Note 7 Unlike when we use the slow cooker function, the saute function will heat and cook the granola much faster. This is the time to be hands on with the cooking. 
  • Note 8 **It is hard to determine the nutrition for this recipe as each individual will likely consume a different portion of the granola. This recipe has been worked out on 20 individual portion sizes.
