Toasted coconut almond granola gives you the energy you need for a good start to the day. And this homemade version contains everything you like. Nuts, spices, and delicious grains. The perfect breakfast. An easy recipe for a full jar.
Making your own breakfast cereal is fun to do, very easy and you can adjust the recipe to your own taste. I used to eat muesli and granola from the supermarket and then there were hard pieces of banana in it (really not my thing), apple cubes (but very chewy), and hard currants. But I didn't know any better and I just picked out the things I didn't like.
Until I started making granola recipes. I roast the dry ingredients for the homemade granola in the oven and, if I feel like it, add currants, raisins, apricots or other dried fruit after everything has cooled down. Or I add it in the morning when adding it to my bowl of yogurt. That way I can adjust it every day exactly to taste. It’s my favorite thing to do each morning
What oatmeal to use for this baked granola with coconut?
Use unprocessed whole grain oats from the supermarket. The cheapest type will do just fine. You do not use quick-cooked variants or with a flavor for this recipe (you add that flavor yourself).

Muesli is made from oatmeal, combined with nuts, seeds, dried, and possibly other grains. No sweetener is added. Granola contains fat (oil or butter) and sugar. This is baked in the oven making it crispy and sweet. Then you can mix it with nuts, dark chocolate chunks, dried fruit, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc. Don't add fresh fruit (add it just before serving otherwise you can't store your granola that long. The end result: a crunchy granola mixture
