💛 1 scoop Free Soul Vanilla vegan protein blend
💛 200g oats
💛 30g quinoa puffs (or other puffed cereal or sunflower seeds)
🧡 1 tsp mixed spice
🧡 1/2 tsp cinnamon
🧡 1/2 tsp ground ginger
🧡 180g pre-cooked/roasted chestnuts, chopped
❤️ 60g coconut oil, melted
❤️ 140g apple puree
❤️ 50ml plant-based milk, if needed
❤️ 100g dried cranberries


  1.  Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together the oats, quinoa puffs, vanilla protein powder (if using), mixed spice, cinnamon, ground ginger and chopped chestnuts.
  3. Pour in the melted coconut oil, apple puree and stir to combine until sticky. Add the plant-based milk as needed to coat the granola evenly – it is usually only needed if using protein powder.
  4. Transfer to the lined tray and bake for 25 minutes, stirring through every 10 minutes. Allow to cool before stirring through the dried cranberries and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
