  • Spread oats and coconut flakes onto a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes; stir oats and coconut and rotate baking sheet. Continue baking until oats and coconut are toasted, about 8 more minutes.

  • Whisk honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together in a bowl until smooth. Add oat mixture to honey mixture and stir until evenly coated.

  • Line the baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Spread oat mixture evenly onto baking sheet.

  • Bake in the oven until granola is toasted, 8 to 15 minutes. Stir granola and transfer liner and granola to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

If you like your granola sweeter, you can add an additional 1/4 cup honey.

If using coconut, reduce amount of oats by 1/2 cup.

Just a heads up... On step 5 I think "waxed paper" should be "parchment paper" (waxed paper in the oven is a no-go). Thanks for the recipe Read More

Loved this granola I added a couple teaspoons hulled hemp seeds and flax seeds before toasting oats and coconut and a 1/2 cup dried reduced sugar craisens before baking. Its great eaten out of hand or as a cereal with milk. Gluten free goodness. Read More

This recipe is great! It's simple doesn't require a lot of ingredients and best of all it's quick! My brother loves this and he's not one to throw out compliments. I'm going to double or triple this recipe next next time since the original recipe was obviously not designed for a hungry family of 5. Read More

Made the recipe as stated. Pretty simple to make. I like my granola a bit sweeter so I would add a touch more honey. Read More
