A super simple recipe for Homemade Honey Nut Granola featuring some toasted coconut flakes. A good granola is amazing, it’s not only delicious but full of amazing things to start your day off right. Granola’s loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fats, and just all around goodness.
Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add oats, sliced almonds, crushed pecans, melted coconut oil, honey, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt into a large mixing bowl. (The coconut flakes will be added later)
Mix all the ingredients really well until everything is well coated in the coconut oil and honey. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet with parchment paper and pat everything down into a flat, even layer.
Bake for 12 minutes then remove the granola from the oven and add the coconut flakes. Give everything a mix then press down into an even, flat layer again and bake for another 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. If you're not using coconut flakes then omit the addition of them but still remove the granola at the halfway baking point, mix it, press it down into a flat layer and then put the tray back in the oven to finish baking.
Allow granola to cool completely, about 30 minutes to an hour, then use your hands or a spoon to break it apart and store in an airtight container for upto 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 3 months.
