Homemade granola is the best granola because you can load it up with the good stuff. I love this easy granola recipe because it’s packed with crunchy almonds and toasted coconut. It’s time to say goodbye wimpy granola!
To make the granola, mix oats, almonds and coconut flakes with pure maple syrup and virgin coconut oil. Bake the mixture until browned and crisped. Serve it with a splash of homemade almond milk or try it sprinkled over a yogurt breakfast bowl.
Coconut Almond Granola Recipe
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free, if needed)
2 cups organic unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup raw almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt or fine sea salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet (15- x 10-inch) with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut flakes and almonds. Drizzle with maple syrup and coconut oil; stir well.
Spread oat mixture in prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with salt. Bake 15 minutes; stir well. Bake 15 minutes more; stir well. Bake 5 to 15 minutes more or until the mixture is toasted and the coconut has browned, stirring every 5 minutes. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
