  • 2 cups oats (certified gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup, if vegan)
  • Zest of 2 oranges
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup orange juice


  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 300 and line a baking pan with parchment paper. 

  2. In a small mixing bowl, add your oats, coconut, walnuts, turmeric and cinnamon and stir them together. 

  3. In a small pot, over medium heat, add your coconut oil, honey and orange zest. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

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

  5. Pour your wet ingredients from your pot over the dry ingredients in your bowl and stir to combine. Pour your granola mixture onto your pan, and spread out in a thin, even layer. 

  6. Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or till the edges are just starting to gain color (but not burning!).

  7. While the granola cools it will get crunchy; let cool for 30 minutes. 

  8. After cooling, crumble your granola up as much or as little as you like, depending on how small or big of granola clusters you prefer.

  9. Devour!

Recipe Notes

Stored in an airtight container, homemade granola should last about a couple months.
