Hawke's Bay Apricot Edition. Here for summer (until we run out).


Recipe by Two Raw Sisters - Rosa and Margo who go about their days showing the benefits of plant-based foods on the mind, body and environment.


  • 3 cups oats

  • 2 cups shredded coconut

  • 1 cup almonds, roughly chopped

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds

  • 4 Tbsp sesame seeds

  • 4 Tbsp chia seeds

  • ¾ cup raisins or dried fruit


  • 2 bags chai tea

  • 1 orange, juice and zest

  • 2 medjool dates

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • ½ tsp ground ginger

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • Pinch salt


Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius, line two baking trays with baking paper.

In ½ cup of boiling water, steep 2 bags of chai tea for 5-10 minutes.

In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients together, except for the raisins and set aside.   

Remove the tea bags from the water and pour into a blender, add all remaining sauce ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Add the sauce to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Then spread evenly over 2 baking trays. Cook for 15-20mins or until golden brown. While cooking ensure that you keep a close eye on it and turn granola over often. Once cooked stir through the raisins and leave to cool.
