This scrumptious coconut granola will keep you satisfied and full of wholesome foods, even if you don't like coconut!
Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 cups coconut flakes (use large flakes, not shredded coconut)
  • 2 cups organic quick oats
  • 2 cups nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, etc.) or seeds (pumpkin, pepita, pine nuts, etc.), chopped roughly - I like to use a combination
  • ½ cup organic flaxseed
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves, ginger or other spice of your choice
  • ¼ to ½ cup coconut sugar, evaporated cane juice or honey, to taste - the amount of sweetener is up to you
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until well combined. Place parchment paper in a cookie or cake pan big enough for one layer of granola.
  3. Pour granola mixture into pan and spread evenly. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Stir granola or turn the pan halfway through cooking time.
  4. If you like it crunchier, let it cook to a darker color. Just keep checking & stirring until you get your perfect crunch!
