This coconut oil honey almond granola just might be my very favorite thing I’ve ever made! It’s so easy, like crazy easy, to make and it’s a healthy and addictive snack that everyone can enjoy.

I bought a big jar of coconut oil awhile back and have been trying out new recipes with it. I love the subtle coconut flavor it gives to things. You could substitute canola oil or some other oil, but I would really recommend using the coconut oil. When you combine the extracts, honey, almonds, and oats with the coconut oil flavor it is so delicious!

Simply combine whole grain oats, almonds, brown sugar, and the honey coconut oil mixture into a bowl and mix together. The recipe calls for half of the almonds to be ground finely or crushed, which help provide some more texture to the granola. I either use a food processor or I will dump the almonds in a Ziploc bag and then use a meat pounder to crush them.

Dump it out onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake. This granola only needs to cook for 10 minutes and then you let it cool. You’ll end up with this coconut almond granola that is sweet, salty, crunchy, and healthy all at the same time!

Β I keep these ingredients on hand but if you don’t, a plus to this recipe is that once you buy the ingredients you can make several batches of this granola. So it’s also very cost effective.

I made this so it was ready for my son when he came home from school. He tried a little nibble and said it was so good that he wanted a whole bowl of it. So, I filled up a kid-sized bowl and then put the rest of the granola in a larger mixing bowl. I told him his bowl was on the counter and then I left. When I went downstairs to check on him I realized that he had grabbed the larger mixing bowl! He ate quite a bit of it, I was impressed πŸ™‚ When I asked why he didn’t grab the smaller bowl he said that he liked it so much that he chose the large bowl!

Silly kid. He is by far my best taste testerΒ β™₯Β β™₯

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats {not quick oats}
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet (with sides) with parchment paper or a silpat liner. Set aside.
  • Using a food processor, food chopper, or a knife & cutting board ; take 1/2 cup of the sliced almonds and pulse (or cut) them until they are finely ground into small pieces. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, the ground up almonds, the other 1/2 cup sliced almonds, salt, and brown sugar. Stir together.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine honey and coconut oil. Microwave for 1 minute or until the coconut oil is melted. Add the extracts into the honey mixture and stir together with a fork. Pour over the oats mixture and stir together until everything is coated and combined.
  • Pour oats mixture onto the cookie sheet and spread out. Cook for 5 minutes, stir the oats, and then cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Let cool for 20-30 minutes. Break up the granola into pieces and store in an air-tight container.

Notes

When I have been out of almond extract I have used coconut extract, and it's really good that way too.

You can use any type of oil you want. If you use canola/vegetable oil then you won't need to do the microwave step as those oils are already liquid.

    July 15, 2017 at 9:09 pm Great taste! However, my structure of my granola bars won't stay together. The bars were very crumbly. How can I make the granola bars more firm?

      July 17, 2017 at 8:15 pm This granola recipe is not meant to be made into granola bars. It's just for granola. Eat plain, eat with milk like cereal, sprinkle over yogurt, etc. Glad to hear it tasted good :) If you want to make granola bars that would be a completely different recipe. This one does not have enough "wet" stuff to hold a granola bar structure.

    May 28, 2018 at 7:00 pm For me it’s: this granola - fresh strawberries and blueberries - vanilla yogurt I had to use half honey and half syrup since I didn’t have 1/3 cup honey. Taste did not change noticeably from when I made it with all honey in the past. Thanks for sharing.
