Crispy Tangy Barberry and Nut Granola Clusters

Crispy Tangy Barberry and Nut Granola Clusters

This Barberry Granola Clusters recipe combines oats, nuts, seeds, and tangy barberries into a delicious, nutritious snack or breakfast treat.


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup USimplySeason Barberries
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and coconut flakes.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat the honey (or maple syrup), coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt over medium heat until well combined.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well to ensure everything is evenly coated.
  5. Spread the mixture out evenly on the prepared baking tray. Press down firmly to compact the mixture. This will help to form clusters.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the granola is golden brown. Be careful not to burn it.
  7. Remove the granola from the oven and let it cool completely on the tray. Do not stir the granola while it's still hot, as it will break up the clusters.
  8. Once cooled, sprinkle the dried barberries over the granola and gently mix them in, trying to maintain some clusters.
  9. Store your barberry granola clusters in an airtight container at room temperature. It should last for up to two weeks.

Enjoy this as a delicious and healthy breakfast option, or a snack throughout the day!
