If you can, use organic ingredients for this recipe. Although we are unsure whether eating organic food reduces breast cancer risk, organic food contains less pesticide residue. We know that certain pesticides are linked to breast cancer risk, so we recommend eating organic food whenever possible. Read more on pesticides here.


85g (¼ cup) honey

1 tsp cinnamon

60ml (¼ cup) olive oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp almond extract

Pinch of Salt

60g (½ cup) almonds – roughly chopped

200g (2 cups) rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds


  • Preheat your oven to 160°C/140°C fan/gas 3 (320°F). 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, olive oil, cinnamon, vanilla extract, almond extract and salt until well combined. 
  • Add the almonds, oats and chia seeds to the bowl and mix until well coated. 
  • Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a lightly oiled baking tray. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and give it a good stir. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the granola is golden. You may need to bake it for an extra 2-5 minutes but be careful not to let it burn – the oats and the almonds can burn very fast. 
  • Let the granola cool down completely before placing it in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. 

Why this is good for you  

Almonds, oats and chia seeds are high in fibre. Studies have shown that a diet high in fibre is associated with a decreased breast cancer risk.
