  • Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Halfway through, stir the granola and then spread it back out.

  • Allow to cool for a few minutes, then break apart.


  • Make sure to mix it halfway through baking, otherwise some parts may become too dark.
  • If you want a deeper coconut flavor, swap out the avocado oil with melted coconut oil.
  • Line your pan with parchment paper (or use a silicon baking mat) for easy cleanup. The honey can make it tough to clean on an unlined baking sheet.
  • You can totally customize this recipe. Add 1/2 cup-1 cup of your favorite nuts, like almond, pistachio, or walnut. If you are nut free (like myself), try pepitas or sunflower seeds.
