Almond Joy Granola

We have been LOVING this granola recipe we found over at The Lemon Bowl. It is called Almond Joy Granola, but we used pecans because that's what we had on hand. My 4 year old and I have been gobbling it up all week! I know this one will be a family favourite and I love that the chocolate chips and shredded coconut are added AFTER baking the granola! Genius! 


3 cups oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds (I used pecans)
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)


Preheat oven to 275 degrees and line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss together the oats and nuts; set aside. Heat honey, coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until smooth and melted. Remove and pour chocolate mixture over the oats mixture. Stir until everything is evenly coated. Spread evenly on baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Let cool completely, then add in the chocolate chips (if using), and the shredded coconut. Enjoy! - Alex
