This granola is such a versatile recipe and it's Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free and oat-free. Perfect as a snack, breakfast or topping.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins


  • 1 cup Coconut Flakes
  • 1/2 cup Pecans (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Almonds (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 tbs Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 tbs Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 2 tbs Honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat the oven to 300 F. Combine the coconut flakes, nuts, seeds, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla and mix until the nuts and seeds are evenly coated.
  • Arrange the granola in a thin layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the coconut flakes turn golden brown, tossing halfway through.


Taylor says you can sub any nuts/seeds you'd like in this recipe. She's tried multiple combinations and has yet to find one she didn't like.
Michele's note: I can see adding some cinnamon or pumpkin spice into this recipe as well to give it a wonderful different flavor, so see how versatile this can be? Different nuts/seeds or different spices and you could have this so many times and not get sick of it.
