Time for another great granola recipe! This time it’s all about the coconut. Between shredded coconut and coconut oil, it’s got a lovely coconut flavor. Add in some quinoa and chia seeds and you’ve got some extra nutrition. Granola is super easy to make and such a great snack to have on hand. Eat it for breakfast, or by the handful throughout the day.
I made this coconut granola specifically for a tropical breakfast smoothie bowl, but now I’m just eating it by the handful. Yumm-o! I love this kind of thing, especially in winter, so I can pretend I’m eating breakfast on the beach instead of staring at snow.
