This granola with coconut recipe is a fantastic way to add a bit of tropical flavor to your breakfast. I recently dived in to the world of homemade granola, and it is SO GOOD I’m not going back! I made a Raw Honey Granola recipe with loads of nuts and spices, and it was a huge hit. Homemade granola is so simple, uses a few pantry staple ingredients, and is ready in under 30 minutes.
 
I love the versatility of granola – you can use it in so many ways! You can add this coconut granola to a big yogurt or smoothie bowl.  Add a scoop to your morning cereal with fruit and milk. Or you can even go a little nuts and add some to the top of these delicious Breakfast Brownies. This granola adds a wonderful crunch to any breakfast dish.

What’s In This Granola Recipe with Coconut Flakes?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Old Fashioned Oats: I used old fashioned oats for this recipe. I found old fashioned oats work much better than quick oats, as they hold up really well while being baked.
  • Unsweetened Coconut Flakes – I used these fantastic coconut flakes which added the perfect flavor and crunch. I always keep a few bags of these coconut flakes in my pantry for a quick breakfast topping or to use to make homemade coconut milk.
  • Almonds
  • Maple syrup: for natural sweetness without the refined sugar, I’d definitely recommend using a natural maple syrup over sugar in this recipe.  And don’t even think about using fake pancake syrup… only the real deal maple syrup in this recipe!
  • Walnuts
  • Coconut Oil: I love keeping a few jars of this organic coconut oil on hand.

How Do I Make This Coconut Granola Recipe?

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the the oats, coconut flakes, walnuts, almonds and pinch of salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined.  Add the liquid mixture to the bowl.  Fold together until the maple syrup mixture has coated every oat, coconut flake, and nut.
  3. Pour granola mixture onto the parchment paper, and using a spatula spread it out evenly over the paper and press down with the spatula.  The harder you press the oats down, the chunkier the granola will be.
  4. Bake granola for 18 minutes, then remove from oven, turn the pan around, and bake for another 5. Do not stir or flip the granola. 
  5. Remove from oven and allow granola to fully cool.  The granola will harden more as it cools, and will form thick chunks.  Add to cereal, yogurt bowls, or parfaits.
