Toasted Coconut and Honey Almond Granola

Author Chelsea


  • 3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Combine the oats and slivered almonds and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the honey (measure exactly - don't overfill the measuring spoons), coconut oil (measure exactly when it's melted and not in the hardened state), brown sugar (measured lightly packed), vanilla extract, and salt.
  4. Microwave mixture for 15 seconds and stir until well combined.
  5. Pour the honey mixture into the oat and almond mixture and stir until well combined.
  6. Add in the flaked coconut.
  7. Spread the granola evenly onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes (depending on the heat of your oven) making sure to flip and stir the granola around every 6-8 minutes.
  9. Remove and allow the granola to harden and set up. (It may be soft and not very "granola-like", but it hardens as it dries out so be careful to not over-cook it). Mine generally takes about 22 minutes and the coconut is a light brown color.
  10. Once the granola is hardened, stir in the dried cranberries.
