This granola has a triple dose of coconut-coconut oil, coconut extract, and shredded coconut. If you haven’t tried coconut oil, you need to. I am obsessed..
The granola is sweetened with pure maple syrup. Splurge on the good stuff for this recipe. I promise it is worth it. I added in chopped almonds and pepitas for a little crunch.
Yield: About 5 cups granola
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
