Coconut Almond Butter Granola

Coconut Almond Butter Granola

Hi, My Cooking Spot Readers! My name’s Megan and I am the creator of The Emotional Baker, a blog focused on creating tear free vegan treats. For my first post, I thought I would share one of my favorite breakfast foods – & that’s granola.

I love creating new recipes. I’ve made Chai Tea, Cashew Butter, Chocolate – the list goes on and on – and ideas keep coming.

With each new flavor, I swear I’ve found my favorite. This batch was no exception. The almond butter gives the oats a caramelized texture. Each bite is filled with crunchy coconut, nuts and dried fruit.

Feel free to change the mix-ins. I like a variety of nuts and fruit, but you could certainly do one nut – it’s easily customizable!

Some granola making tips.

  • Spread the granola as evenly as you can.
  • After 30 minutes, carefully flip the granola with the added fruit. Then pack the granola back down so it can crisp.
  • Do not touch the granola until it cools completely. This allows it to develop the perfect texture.

I hope you love this granola as much as I do 🙂
