Citrus Granola

Very quick to prepare, this stores in an airtight jar. I used a few drops of orange essential oil to boost the flavour in this, but any orange flavoured liqueur will do the trick, too.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 30 mins


  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 cup of roughly chopped Singing Magpie Produce pecans
  • 1/2 cup of roughly chopped Singing Magpie Produce dried Smyrna quince
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • zest of one Riverland orange
  • Orange essential oil or orange liqueur


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Spread coconut, oatmeal and nuts on a large, lined tray and toast for approx 10 minutes, stirring them around twice in that time to prevent them burning.
  • Cool slightly.
  • Combine chia seeds, maple syrup,spices, quince and orange zest in a large bowl, add cooled dried ingredients and mix well. Add a few drops of orange oil or a little orange liqueur and mix that in well.
  • Spread mix out evenly on lined tray and toast in oven for 10-15 minutes, again stirring around at least twice to prevent burning. Remove when golden.
  • Cool and store in airtight jar.
