Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Coconut Almond Granola

I finally tried making granola last night and I’m happy to say that it turned out really legit! My favorite granola as a kid was from this restaurant called Peaches in Florida so I wanted to recreate that one, which meant it had to have cinnamon + raisins + coconut + almond. There are lot of different things you can add to a general granola base, but I HIGHLY recommend this combo – it’s just SO tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea or kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup honey (or a little more if you like your granola on the sweeter side)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Mix oats, cinnamon & salt in a bowl.
  3. Combine honey, oil & vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until dried ingredients are thoroughly coated.
  5. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, stir, and then bake for an additional 10 minutes (or until granola looks golden brown).
  7. Let the granola cool for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally (you will notice it starts to get harder).
  8. Add raisins, coconut & almonds.
  9. You just made granola! Now put it in an airtight container and it should be good for about 2 weeks.
  10. Enjoy! :)
