Coconut Granola

Servings: 10
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats (don't use quick oats)
  • 1 cup slivered almonds (I used a scant cup)
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp coconut extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, toss together oats, almonds, and coconut, set aside. In a separate microwave safe mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, honey, coconut oil and salt and heat in microwave on HIGH power 1 minute stirring once halfway through heating. Stir in coconut extract and pour mixture over oats and toss until evenly coated (it will seem dry at first, just keep tossing).
  2. Spread oat covered mixture in an even layer into a rimmed, Silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 45 - 55 minutes , stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely (it will harden as it cools). Store in an airtight container.
