Do you ever have those days where you are super busy, but feel like you get nothing done? That has been happening to me a lot lately. The days go by so quickly because I am so busy, but by the end of the day, I still don’t feel like I’ve accomplished anything.
Last week, I was running around like crazy trying to cross things off of my “to do” list, but Caleb didn’t want mama to work. He only wanted to play, so I put my “to do” list aside and we went to the park. When we got home, Caleb took a nap and I decided I was going to make homemade Coconut Granola and forget about everything else. I know granola is super easy to make, but for some reason, I always feel a sense of satisfaction after making a batch. I needed a little satisfaction, so I put on my apron and made a batch of Coconut Granola.
This granola has a triple dose of coconut-coconut oil, coconut extract, and shredded coconut. If you haven’t tried coconut oil, you need to. I am obsessed. I bought a jar from Trader Joe’s when we were in California and I am hooked. It is SO good in this granola.
The granola is sweetened with pure maple syrup. Splurge on the good stuff for this recipe. I promise it is worth it. I added in chopped almonds and pepitas for a little crunch.
I love eating Coconut Granola with Chobani Greek yogurt and fresh berries. It is the perfect summer treat. It is also good by the handful. I keep the granola in a large jar on our counter and it doesn’t last long. I can’t walk by without grabbing a handful of granola. It is too good!
This Coconut Granola also makes a great gift. Make a big batch and share with your family, friends, and neighbors. Fill Weck or Mason Jars with granola, add a ribbon, note and you are set! Such a cute, easy, and tasty gift!
At the end of the day I was content. I didn’t tackle my “to do” list, but I made a killer batch of Coconut Granola and that was good enough. Sometimes all you need is a little homemade granola. I hope you enjoy this Coconut Granola as much as I do.
This easy homemade Coconut Granola is great with yogurt or by the handful!
