I've teamed up with graze to bring you the most delicious post-workout (or post-long-day-at-the-office) snack to refuel and replenish your body. This granola is super special, and I decided it would be the perfect topping for a coordinating smoothie bowl with complimentary ingredients.

baobab powder

A lover of superfood powders such as maca, cacao, goji, chia, etc, I decided to take a risk and try out this new baobab powder from graze! I'm a huge lover of graze snacks, and was very inspired by their supersnacks box which included tasty baobab snacks. Little did I know, it's tangy and sweet flavour would inspire a whole new array of recipes, in addition to providing exceptional health benefits!

granola taste


  • 3 cup rustic rolled oats
  • 14 cup raw coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 2 chopped chopped dates
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp baobab powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 14 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp pureed pumpkin


Preheat oven to 175C. In a large bowl, combine melted coconut oil, tahini, sweetener of choice and pumpkin puree.

Begin to add your oats, coconut, chia seeds, baobab powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Fold in the dates and almonds until everything is sticky and somewhat coated in the pumpkin mixture.

On a greased baking sheet, spread the granola so that there is no spaces between. Make one big granola bar! (this may not take up your entire pan)

Bake for approximately 25 minutes, checking periodically. Granola burns really quickly so be careful!!!

Allow to COMPLETELY COOL. Like, don’t even mess with it.

It should be one big brick, so now break it up into chunks! I like chunky granola but if clusters aren’t your thing, you can crack it into little bits.

To serve, sprinkle on top of a smoothie bowl and top with fruit and honey.
