For the past few days, I have had a huge hankering for a bowl of crunchy sweet granola. For me, granola is a comfort food, it’s right up there with mac and cheese, garlic mash, and a hot cup of coffee (I wouldn’t eat that all at once of course…….or would I hmmm).
Whenever I make granola, I like to peek inside my cabinets and throw in whatever dried fruits and nuts I have.After noticing the amount of dried coconut I had in my cabinets, I decided to go with a coconut granola. I already had an opened can of coconut milk in my fridge, so I went ahead and added a bit to my granola. Since the coconut milk adds a little bit more moisture, you are going to have to bake the granola for a little longer than usual in order to dry it out, but it’s worth it! I think that this recipe would also taste great with some coconut extract for an extra kick of flavor and maybe even some dried pineapple or mango. Try it out and let me know what you think!
