Coconut Pineapple Granola

I use granola a whole lot in this house. It’s amazing in yogurt, pancakes, oatmeal, or even just on its own as a snack. My maple pecan granola from last year was so fun and I loved making it. With warm weather coming, I started to think tropical thoughts. So I decided to bring the tropics home with this amazing, healthy coconut pineapple granola variation! It was an absolute cinch to make and so much better than store bought granola.

The coconut pineapple granola was chock full of goodies. I used lots of oats, coconut, chopped pecans, pineapple juice, agave syrup, and spices. All I did was mix all of that together!
I made sure to grease my lined baking sheet with coconut oil so that the coconut pineapple granola wouldn’t stick. Then I spread that gorgeous mixture out onto the sheet tray in a thin layer.
The coconut pineapple granola baked for 30 minutes to crisp up and cook through. It made the whole house smell like a tropical beach with the almond and coconut scent wafting everywhere. The next step was the key though. I stirred it all well and put it back in the oven to dry out for 2 hours. That made it really crisp and glorious!

I was so happy when I tried one or five handfuls of this stuff. It was crunchy and huge on flavor. Then I proceeded to put more of it in my vanilla yogurt for lunch. Since I can’t get to a tropical beach anytime soon (sigh), this stuff at least made the day a little sunnier. Hope you all love it as much as we did in this house! xoxo

  1. I actually make my own granola (actually made some and boxed in cute boxes as a wedding favor) and will definitely try this out. I wondered though, is there a reason you use agave syrup instead of honey? BTW, found your blog from the Bloggers Supporting Bloggers FB group and your recipes seem quite interesting. I definitely intend to follow…

    1. Hi there! The honest main two reasons were that I had just received a big bottle of it from my friend and wanted to use it, as well as the fact that it is vegan for my vegan readers. Honey would be a perfect substitute though! I’m so glad you found my blog through the group, I hope you love the recipes!! Thank you so much!! 🙂

  2. The recipe sounds wonderful and I can’t wait to try it! Could you add dried pineapple before placing it in the oven or would it be best to add it after the baked granola cools? I would hate for it to burn in the oven. Thanks!
