Cherry Coconut Granola

Sep 25, 2021

There is something about freshly baked granola that singles the fall season. Maybe it’s the need to satiate my soul with oats or the warm smells wafting through the kitchen. Either way, you can’t go wrong with homemade granola. It’s so simple that you’ll wonder why you ever bought it at the grocery your whole life.


  • 2 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 2/3 Cup Dried Cherries
  • 2/3 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Ground Flax Seed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Honey or Liquid Sweetener or Choice
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil


Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, combine honey and coconut oil. Make sure that coconut oil is in a liquid state.

Slowly drizzle honey and oil mixture over dry mix and combine until the oats are evenly coated.

Evenly spread oats on a lined baking sheet to prevent sticking. Bake for 35 minutes, keeping a close eye to not burn the coconut.

Let granola completely cool then break into small chunks. Store in an airtight container to keep the crunchy texture. Serve solo or with your favorite yogurt or fruit.
