Vanilla Coconut Granola

Vanilla Coconut Granola

We eat a lot of granola in my house. Normally, I make a double batch of my Peanut Butter Chia Granola recipe every other week. My husband loves it so much that whenever I’m getting ready to make it I ask if he wants to try something new and he always says no. So, this time I just made something new anyway. We’ve been in our peanut butter granola rut for well over a year and its time to take matters into my own hands.

This granola is light, sweet, crisp and totally customizable. I chose coconut flakes and pepitas, but choose any 2 add ins that you like. Any nut or seed will work here. The great granola rut is a thing of the past.

As with all granola, use rolled oats here. No quick oats. When spreading out onto a pan, gently press the mixture down with the back of a spatula. This will encourage larger clusters.

I like this granola with paired with plant based yogurt, cereal or to top a bowl of oats with. But I have also been known to simply eat it by the handful.
