I find breakfast to be one of the tougher meals to get right when it comes to a PCOS-friendly diet, and this is also something I hear often from those who join my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge.
We’re tired, we’re rushed, and I get that meat and vegetables (the ideal breakfast nutritionally speaking) may not appeal to everyone. Well, fortunately, a PCOS-friendly diet is flexible enough to not let perfect be the enemy of the good.
Here’s everything you’ll need to make this PCOS Granola Bake:
- Flaxseed/Linseed meal
- Coconut flakes
- Coconut oil
- Almond milk
- Coconut oil
- Apple pie spice
- Ground Ceylon cinnamon
- Filtered water
This granola bake recipe is a fantastic, prep-ahead-for-several-days kinda breakfast. It’s super-delicious and also very filling, making it the perfect addition to your recipe collection.

- 2 tbsp Flaxseed/Linseed meal
- 1/2 cup Almonds
- 1/2 cup Walnuts
- 1/2 cup Pecans
- 1/3 cup Coconut flakes
- 1 tbsp Coconut oil (melted, for toasting nuts)
- 1/2 Almond milk
- 2 tbsp Coconut oil (melted, cooled)
- 1 tbsp Apple pie spice
- 1 tsp Ground Ceylon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 Apples (peeled, grated)
- 5 tbsp Filtered water
- Mix the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside for 10-15 minutes to allow to thicken.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Lay nuts and coconut flakes in a single layer, then drizzle with coconut oil. Roast for 5-7 minutes, then remove and allow to cool.
- Increase the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C).
- In a food processor or high-powered blender, pulse nuts and coconut to make a crumbly mixture. Take care to not over process it as you’ll get an oily mixture.
- In a large bowl combine the processed nuts with the grated apples, almond milk, flaxseed mixture, additional coconut oil, spices, and salt. Transfer to a 9” x 9” (25 x 25 cm) baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top begins to crisp and brown.
- Serve warm, with coconut yogurt.
