This easy homemade coconut granola recipe can be served as a hot or cold cereal. Serve the raw mixture before toasting to enjoy it like a muesli. Coconut granola features shredded coconut, slivered almonds, ground flax seed, cinnamon and spices, and coconut oil! It is sweetened with maple syrup and brown sugar.
I love the convenience of store bought granola and muesli, but every now and then I like to make my own. Homemade granola lets you tweak a granola recipe to include all your favorite ingredients (and leave out the stuff you don’t like!)
This coconut granola recipe is easy to make and packed with nutrients. If you don’t want to toast the mix, simply eat it raw like a muesli cereal. I like to top yogurt with muesli.
Toasting the mix will bring out the yummy coconut and almond flavors, and make the rolled oats crunchy. I like to toast the mixture in the oven for about 20 minutes. The toasting is what turns the mix from muesli into granola.
Once the granola has cooled, you can stir in dried fruits if you want to. Dried pineapples taste delicious mixed in this coconut granola!
