Homemade Almond Coconut Granola. It’ll change your breakfast bowl life.

yogurt with raspberries and Homemade Almond Coconut Granola


I never really ate granola until just a few years ago. Until then, I knew granola as tough and cardboard-like, with flavors that tasted either unappealing or dare I say “fake”. But that’s because I had never made my own granola. I was buying it packaged from the store or trying it from a hotel breakfast buffet, always disappointed, left wondering what the hype was all about.

But then I started experimenting with making my own granola at home. And my life was forever changed.

This right here is my favorite tried-and-true granola recipe that I make over and over and over again. Homemade Almond Coconut Granola.

Homemade Almond Coconut Granola

This homemade granola is all things perfect to me.

FLAVOR: Warm and toasty. Sweetened with brown sugar and maple syrup, with the added flavors of almond, coconut, and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.

TEXTURE: Crisped perfectly, with no large hard chunks of break-a-tooth granola pieces here!

STORABILITY: Is that a word? I love that this granola keeps well for a good amount of time. Most often, we make a double batch.

When this homemade almond coconut granola is in the oven, the whole house is enveloped in its toasty scent. I always welcome its wonderfully comforting visit.

Homemade Almond Coconut Granola with yogurt and fresh berries

I like to add a handful of granola to any yogurt, but my current favorite combination is vanilla bean yogurt (Noosa brand) or coconut yogurt (Noosa or Trader Joe’s brand) with a swirl of homemade berry freezer jam and a sprinkling of fresh berries. I also adore any of the flavored Noosa yogurts, and enjoy them with a simple dose of this homemade granola.

  • 3 c. old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c. shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1.5 c. sliced almonds
  • 5 T. brown sugar
  • ½ T. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • tsp. nutmeg
  • c. coconut oil melted
  • ¾ c. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. pure almond extract


  • Preheat oven to 300° F.
  • Spray an 11" x 17" rimmed baking pan lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Pour liquid mixture over dry mixture and fold until evenly coated.
  • Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Bake for about 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until granola is nicely browned. If you like a crispy, crunchy granola, be sure to let it brown. If you like a more chewy texture, don’t let it brown as much. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Store in airtight container.
  • Note: This keeps very well in an airtight container. I often make a double batch, using two rimmed 11" x 17" baking pans.
