Description

This Homemade Granola Recipe is sweet, crunchy and coconutty!  Packed with fiber and flavor, our Coconut Granola with vegan dark chocolate is a tropical mood-booster that is a healthy, filling treat on the go.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes ( not shredded coconut)
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275F . Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a large bowl and mix well, using a wooden spoon or your hands, so the oats and coconut are well coated with the oil and maple syrup
  3. Transfer it to the lined baking sheet and spread it in one single layer. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 so it bakes evenly
  4. Remove from the oven, let it cool completely, add the chocolate chips and toss well

Notes

This granola goes really well with dried tropical fruit, such as pineapple, mango or papaya!
