Servings 4 cups


  • 250 grams rolled oats
  • 100 grams almonds roughly chopped
  • 45 grams almond meal
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 150 grams soft dates packed
  • 70 grams coconut oil room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon rosewater
  • Handful dried rose petals optional


  • Preheat the oven to 150°C / 300°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Mash the dates (remove any seeds first) with a fork or use your food processor to blend them into a paste. In a large bowl, mix the oats, chopped almonds, almond meal, vanilla, cardamom, and salt. 
  • Add the date paste, coconut oil, and rosewater to the oat mixture. Use your hands to mix until fully incorporated. Place the granola onto the prepared baking sheet and try to spread it into an even layer.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and cool completely on the baking sheet before breaking into pieces and mixing in the dried rose petals. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one month.
