How to Make Honey Almond Coconut Granola

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, 85 grams of coconut, almonds, quinoa, and vanilla bean and set aside.

Step 3

In a small saucepan, add the coconut sugar, coconut oil, water, and honey. Cook on medium/high heat until everything is combined. Remove from heat and add the sea salt. Stir to combine completely. Pour the sugar mixture over the oat mixture and fold to combine and completely coat the oats.

Step 4

Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and spread out as evenly as possible. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and stir to rotate granola. Bake again for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely on the baking sheet. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

FAQ's

Is granola gluten free?

Most granola is made with rolled oats that can be rolled in gluten. If you are making homemade granola, be sure to buy rolled oats that are specifically labeled gluten free if you need granola to be gluten free.

What can I serve homemade granola with?

I love eating homemade granola like cereal, just with plain milk or coconut milk! But you can also serve this with yogurt and fruit.

How do you store homemade granola?

Homemade granola should be stored in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 1 month.

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
