  • 2 cups rolled oats (certified gluten-free)
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (or other favorite nuts)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line a pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add your oats, walnuts (or other preferred nuts) and cinnamon. 

  3. In a small pot, over medium-medium high heat, add your coconut oil and honey. Bring to a simmer, and simmer for 1 minute. 

  4. Take your pot OFF the heat and add in your vanilla.

  5. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients in your mixing bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated. 

  6. Spread out onto your pan in a thin, even layer, and bake in the oven for 22 minutes.

  7. Take your pan out of the oven, and add your coconut to the pan. If you stir your coconut into your granola mixture, your granola will not turn out as chunky granola (more like confetti granola). If you would like chunky granola, sprinkle your coconut on top. 

  8. Put your pan back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes, or till the coconut has just slightly browned. Watch your coconut closely to ensure that it doesn't burn!

  9. While the granola is cooling it will get crunchy. Let it cool for about 30 minutes and devour!

Recipe Notes

Store your granola in an airtight container. Serving size is based on 1/4 cup of granola.
