Coconut Quinoa Granola

Home ยป Coconut Quinoa Granola


Time for another great granola recipe! This time it’s about coconuts. Between shredded coconut and coconut oil, it has a lovely coconut flavor. Add some quinoa and chia seeds and you’ve got some extra nutrition. Granola is super easy to make and makes a great snack. Eat it for breakfast, or in small amounts throughout the day.

I made this coconut granola specifically for a tropical breakfast smoothie bowl, but now I just eat it by the handful. tasty! I love this stuff, especially in the winter so I can pretend to be having breakfast on the beach instead of staring at the snow.
