.:: { Kitchen } Almond Coconut Granola ::.

This granola is my latest addiction. Lovely golden brown, crisp and sweet-but-not-too-sweet granola, with the addition of coconut chips which I’m also crazy about lately. I love having it with a cup of milk, topping it some dried cranberries. Morning, made.

Almond Coconut Granola

Almond Coconut Granola

4 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

a handful of sliced almonds

a handful of roasted coconut chips

dried fruit, optional

  1. Mix rolled oats, brown sugar, salt, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla extract. Fold the mixture together with a rubber spatula until all of the oats and almonds are thoroughly coated.
  2. Turn the oat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into a thin, even layer.
  3. Bake until the top is lightly browned – about 30 minutes, stirring the oats halfway through. Add sliced almonds and coconut chips, bake for another 15-30 minutes until crisp.
  4. Cool, add dried fruit and store in an airtight container.
