Blueberry, Turmeric & Coconut Granola

You may have heard of The Groovy Food Company, offering coconut based products including their 100% unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil. Now they have just launched a new exciting product to the range: Virgin Coconut Oil infused with Turmeric! This colourful spice has definitely seen a rise in popularity amongst the health food world thanks to its plethora of benefits, so combined with good old coconut oil, this is a winner of a nutritious ingredient and is a great way to inject a burst of goodness into countless dishes.

It’s just launched in Waitrose but I was lucky to be kindly sent a jar to test out – and of course, create a healthy recipe with! Rather than going down the savoury route, I wanted to make a super easy breakfast dish which uses the colourful coconut oil combined with oats, dried blueberries, seeds, coconut and cardamom. The result is a crunchy, substantial (and addictive!) granola absolutely bursting with flavour and colour . Serve how you want – straight from the jar, with yogurt and fruit, sprinkled on top of a smoothie bowl… Trust me, it’ll be hard to make this last a week!


  • 100g rolled oats (can be gluten-free)
  • 75g buckwheat groats
  • 75g pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 100g dried blueberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3 tablespoons The Groovy Food Company Coconut Oil with Turmeric
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

Get making!

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C and grease and line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. Mix together the oats, buckwheat, pumpkin seeds, coconut, dried blueberries and cardamom in a large bowl.
  3. Gently melt the coconut oil and maple syrup then pour into the bowl and mix well to combine, making sure everything is coated.
  4. Spread evenly over the tray in a single layer and press down slightly to help make the clusters. Bake for 15-20 minutes, making sure to remove and stir regularly so the granola is evenly baked.
  5. Once golden, set aside and leave to cool completely – this is when it will firm up and go nice and crispy!
  6. Place into a kilner jar or lidded box/tub and keep for up to 2 weeks.
