Chocolate Coconut Granola


  • cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tsps. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 5 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups whole almonds coarsely chopped (I used cocoa roasted)
  • ½ cup flaked coconut


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. I highly recommend using a rimmed baking sheet.
  • In a saucepan whisk together maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt and vegetable oil and cook on med heat until it comes to a light boil.
  • In a large mixing bowl measure out the oats, coconut and almonds.
  • Once the liquid mixture has come to a light boil, slowly pour over the oat mixture.
  • Using a spatula mix around the oat mixture until all is covered with the syrup mixture.
  • Spread onto the baking sheet and pat down the granola with the spatula. Make sure it is evenly spread out on the pan.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 min, or until the top is starting to brown.
  • Allow to cool on pan for an hour and then store in an airtight container.
