Coconut Cherry Granola


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla (or regular vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup almonds (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup pistachios (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries


  1. 1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together the coconut oil, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  2. 2) Add the oats, coconut, almonds, pistachios and stir.
  3. 3) Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and spread the granola on the sheet.
  4. 4) Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Stir it around every 7-10 minutes to make sure it cooks evenly. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn!
  5. 5) Once granola is done, add the dried cherries and let cool completely.


* This granola is great served over yogurt, plain with milk, or sprinkled over ice cream!
