Honey Cinnamon Coconut Granola Bowls
Have you turned your kitchen in to a #quarantinekitchen yet? If you’ve been on social media at all in the past week (or even just stuck at home) you’ve probably felt inclined to cook every meal you can remember since 2002. The upside is that your freezer is probably stocked with all of the leftovers (at least mine is).
In addition to the many recipes you’ve been thinking of making, I’m here to share a chunky granola, which sadly, did not even make it to the freezer because it went so fast. This granola is loaded with coconut, honey, cinnamon, and all the ingredients to make your house smell like a cake. Absolutely perfect for Spring weather approaching..
Since most of my mornings consist of #fabfoursmoothies I thought I would make something that I can resort back to with (you guessed it) MORE pantry ingredients. Not that I need a break from my smoothies, I’m just trying to make all of my ingredients last as long as possible. The fewer the grocery trips I can make, the better.
Here are the details for this delicious granola..
- It’s practically a throw everything together in a bowl type of baking.
- The taste is nutty, chunky, sweet, and it’s perfect with strawberries and milk.
- It can totally last in the freezer (if it makes it there) and thaw quickly for smoothie bowls, cereal, yogurt bowls, or even as is!
- If you don’t like your granola this chunky, stir it around half way through baking for smaller pieces.
If you feel inclined for yet another baking project this week, give this recipe a go. At least this one is healthy, right? Scroll on to find the full recipe and don’t forget to tag me in a photo of your creation on social media!
Honey Cinnamon Coconut Granola

- In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, pecans, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, salt, and cinnamon.
- Heat a small saucepan over low heat and add the honey, coconut oil, and vanilla.
- Whisk until the coconut oil has just melted and the mixture is smooth.
- Pour the wet mixture in to the dry and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until combined.
