Homemade Coconut Granola

We love homemade granola and I make it often. One of the things I love about homemade granola is that I can control the ingredients that go into it.

It is also easy to change it up and make all kinds of different flavors. The coconut granola I am sharing today is one of the newest ways that I have changed it up a little.

This coconut granola is my new favorite granola. I love eating a bowl of it with yogurt or milk for lunch. Yes, I eat granola for lunch often because it is a healthy and quick lunch, but this is also perfect for a healthy breakfast.

If you have not tried homemade granola I encourage you to give it a try.

    Homemade granola and trail mixes are the best with coconut oil! Thanks for a great recipe!

  4. Yum! Have added this to my “to cook” list! Thanks for sharing!

    sounds great!

  6. My husband would love this recipe! Where did you find coconut extract? I am assuming you do not use imitation. Also, is the coconut you use unsweetened? Thanks for your help!

    • I usually find the coconut extract in the baking aisle with the other extracts like vanilla etc. On the coconut I usually use whatever I have, both unsweetened or sweetened will work. I hope you enjoy it.

  7. This looks so nummy nummy. I love granola and coconut. Also, homemade granola is great for me because most of the store bought stuff has almonds (or some other nut) in it and my husband is allergic. Thanks!

    • That is why we love homemade granola too. My daughter is allergic to all tree nuts and peanuts and it is almost impossible to find one that she can have. Homemade works great because we know what goes into it. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Lynn! This was so good it was addictive! Between my kids and I (OK mostly just me) we finished a whole batch in about 2 days. Thanks for the great recipe. By far, this is now my favorite granola/

  9. I have a (maybe) dumb question…..why would you use regular and quick oats? I don’t usually have the quick and was wondering if I could just use all regular? Sounds awesome though! LOVE coconut :)

  10. Does it matter if you use refined or extra-virgin coconut oil? Will there be a flavour difference?

    • I use the refined. The coconut flavor seems more mild with it and so that is what I keep on hand. I think the other would work fine, it would just have a stronger coconut taste, which is this would be fine. In baking and other things though we find the unrefined coconut too strong, but that is probably a personal preference. I hope that helps.

    I have a small convection oven that I can only put one 9×13 pan in at a time. Would the whole batch fit in a pan? If I stirred it occasionally, do you think it would work?

    • I don’t think it will crisp up as well in just one pan. You would probably be better off just cutting the recipe in half and doing it in one pan. I hope you enjoy it!

  12. What brand of gluten free oats do you buy? I bought a big bag of gluten free oats and my kids used it up. The brand name escapes me.

    • I usually buy Bob’s Red Mill, but I have bought a few other brands when my the food co-op I order through has them.
