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.

I love the crunch of granola combined with the creaminess of yogurt. And the cranberries, nuts, and coconut are great additions too. I give this recipe a big yums up! 🙂
Great recipe. Coconut is definitely a bold choice, but, a good one.
I wish I had some of this granola for my yogurt in the morning!! It looks sensational!
It feels like a special tread when I add granola to my yogurt. It’s the perfect little bit of texture to add to yogurt!
Thank you for the nice compliment! Once you adjust to the delicious tang of Greek yogurt your’re sold forever 😉
It’s such a yummy combination, but I have to limit myself because I could really do some damage here – haha!
I used to make granola all the time. I forgot how wonderful it is. This looks so tasty.
I hope this recipe inspires you make it again. I love the crunchy texture of granola.
Coconut is soul-food for me and this is a lovely idea to combine with granola and use it as topping!
I’m glad you like coconut as much as I do. It’s so delicious 🙂
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!
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 🙂
Thanks, Joanne. It’s a great combination and satisfying too 🙂
Mmmmm!! Sounds delish!
We love granola. This is will be a fun recipe to make this weekend.
You can easily experiment with this granola recipe. I might add some mini chocolate chips when I make my next batch.
Your granola is exactly how I like mine! Love adding coconut, dried fruit and nuts! Now I have a huge craving!!!
All the textures of the ingredients in this granola makes me happy! The coconut adds just a slight touch of coconutty flavor. So good!
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! 🙂
Thank you, Nicole! We were in Germany for a few years and they call it muesli too!
Love the variety of nuts especially the macadamia in your granola. Don’t think it will last for 2 weeks in my house.
I’ve noticed the granola doesn’t last that long in my house either!
Yum, I became addicted to granola when I visited the US 😀

Schools have not started yet here, but I think I am going to try this granola to my son when he starts his school year. It looks so crunchy and delicious!
I love the texture of this granola, especially when I eat it with yogurt! Enjoy this time before your son starts school!
Crunchy and delicious and perfect for those rushed back to school mornings.
