Coconut Almond Granola

Coconut Almond Granola

Sweet and crunchy granola filled with coconut and almonds. So much healthier than store-bought and tastier too.

I never buy granola at the store because it’s just so easy to make and you can throw whatever ingredients you want in there. I also love that it has way less sugar than store-bought granola. For this batch, I kept it really simple–coconut, almonds, and oats. Since I love coconut so much I used coconut oil, coconut extract, and shredded coconut to make this granola extra flavorful. I really love the combination of coconut and almonds so I added sliced almonds and almond extract in there too. I wish you could have smelled my house while it baked because it was AMAZING! This coconut almond granola turned out crunchy and delicious and I especially love the bits of toasted shredded coconut. Yum!

  1. I’ve spent a lot of money on coconut granola and you’re right – it’s so silly when I can make it at home! This looks great.

  2. This looks like delicious granola. I love two of the ingredients you used-coconut and almonds.

  3. Is that 1/4 cup coconut oil? Looks delicious.

    1. Kathy,

      Yes! Thank you.
