Homemade granola recipe with mixed nuts and coconut is crunchy and lightly sweetened with honey. Top on yogurt, ice cream or eat this granola with milk!
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!
- 2 cups gluten-free quick-cooking oatmeal not instant
- 1 cup mixed nuts walnuts, almonds, pecans, macadamia
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons honey I used local raw honey
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a large bowl mix together oatmeal, nuts, coconut, cranberries, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, mix honey and coconut oil together. Toss honey mixture into the oatmeal coating all the ingredients. Put the mix on a cookie sheet covered with a silicone baking mat. Bake 25-30 minutes. Every 5 minutes take out and stir the granola then flatten to a single layer. When granola is golden, remove from oven and let cool. Store granola in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
