Almond Coconut Granola Recipe

 

Toasted Almond Coconut Granola

is by far the most delicious and easiest homemade granola recipe you will find. My favorite thing about this recipe is I always have everything I need to make it on hand in my pantry. This is a staple in my house it only takes about 15 minutes to make and it will make your house smell amazing.

Almond Coconut granola has the perfect balance of flavors, the toasted golden oats and coconut flavors combination is not overly sweet, and with a touch of sea salt to balance it out. Granola is the perfect addition to Greek yogurt, enjoyed with milk like cereal or by all by itself. Almond Coconut Granola is great for breakfast but makes a great snack as well. Our house enjoys making this recipe year-round with Instant Pot Greek yogurt and fresh or frozen berries.

To make this you will need a large sheet pan like this one. The bigger the sheet pan the better in my opinion, because the more you can spread out the oats the more toasted they can get when you bake them.

You’ll also need to line the sheet pan with parchment paper. This keeps everything from sticking but also is helpful when removing the granola from the sheet pan to store.

If the granola doesn’t disappear before your eyes you’ll need to store it in an air-tight container. I like using my mason jars with these lids and these are my favorite pantry storage containers. I’ve used both to store my Almond Coconut Granola and have great results with it staying fresh for weeks either way I store it.
