  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsps cashews
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey (use coconut nectar or maple syrup for vegan)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2-3 dried Guajillo chilies for medium spice (use chile de arbol for hot or anaheim for mild)
  • pinch cayenne


  1. Preheat your oven to 300F.
  2. Roughly ground all the nuts and seeds (except for the 2 tablespoons cashews) using a food processor.
  3. Transfer them to a large bowl. Add the whole cashews, raisins, coconut oil, honey, salt and cayenne.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the mixture, spreading it evenly on the whole surface.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir a little bit so the granola doesn’t burn.
  6. Remove from the oven and let it cool down.
  7. Finely chop the dried chilies and add them to the nut mixture. If you prefer your breakfast hotter, simply add the chilies before you put the tray into the oven so they will have time to release their whole flavor.
  8. Enjoy with a glass of coconut milk or by its own.
