Granola with mixed nuts and coconut - The Foodie Affair

Easy Granola Recipe

Not too long ago I got my husband to switch from flavored yogurt to plain Greek yogurt.

I felt like it was a major win because he eats yogurt just about every morning, and what he was eating was loaded with sugar!

Not the best way to start a day!

Now he adds just a small amount of sweetener to plain yogurt, and has this Granola with Mixed Nuts and Coconut for an extra satisfying and filling topping!

Granola Recipe Lightly Sweetened With Honey

Topping your plain yogurt with this granola my be all the sweetener you need.

This granola is baked with honey adding a light sweet taste, and enhanced even more with the coconut and cranberries.

I used gluten-free oats, which is what I had in my pantry, but I have also made this with regular quick oats.

You can toss in some fresh fruit like blueberries, add milk and eat it like a cereal or munch on it between meals for a satisfying snack!

  1. It’s crazy how much sugar is in flavoured yogurt, isn’t it? We think we are eating something healthy but the healthy part is overshawdowed. Looove homemade grandola, this looks like a delicious version!

    1. It is crazy to see so much sugar in yogurt and so many other foods too! Even the plain yogurts vary in sugar levels. It really is smart to look closely at the brands you choose. Thanks so much for stopping by Naomi 🙂

  2. I absolutely adore homemade granola – or muesli as we call it in New Zealand! I really love your combination of ingredients here, especially the use of honey and coconut oil. This must taste amazing! 🙂
