Health Nut Toasted Coconut Almond Granola


Sometimes I make this granola recipe just so my house can smell like a tropical vacation. Packed with cocout, toasted almonds and sweet banana that holds it all together, you might want to double this one!


  • 3 cups of rolled oats
  • 3/4 c. bran buds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut pieces, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed into a paste
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup to make it vegan of low FODMAP)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the coconut oil and honey together, about 1 minute. Alternatively, microwave for 30-60 seconds until melted.
  4. Meanwhile, add all other ingredients, including the mashed banana,  into a large mixing bowl. Add coconut oil mixture once completely melted.
  5. Mix ingredients together until well combined and small granola clusters start to form ( I like to use my hands for this step to make sure everything is well mixed)
  6. Distribute mixture in a single layer,  between the two baking sheets, so it browns nice and evenly
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Allow granola to become a nice golden brown for that delicious toasted flavor
  8. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Store in and air right jar.
