  • 1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp brown rice syrup (or agave, or coconut sugar, if paleo)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 300.
  2. In a small bowl, melt the coconut oil in the microwave. (If it’s already melted, you can skip this step!)
  3. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. In a larger mixing bowl, combine the coconut and almonds.
  5. Drizzle with coconut oil mixture, and stir to coat.
  6. Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray.
  7. Spread out the granola in a single layer or leave it a little chunky if you like clumps in your granola.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the coconut begins to brown.
  9. Let it cool and store in an air tight container.
