{Coconut Granola}

Yay! For Friday!!! I am happy and relieved its the weekend! This weekend marks the last work weekend for Brent! He is an accountant so he has been busy, busy for several months and we are excited to have daddy home more often!! But for you Tax slackers the deadline is actually Monday! Mine are taken care of ;) hehe..
Last night after the babies went down I cleaned my entire kitchen! Swept, Scrubbed, & Mopped! Then decided to make Granola... Note to self.. never do that again. Granola can get a bit messy.. I don't know if its just me but    when I make granola it gets everywhere! This granola however, is completely worth it!!!!

{Coconut Granola}

Yields- A boatload of granola...


  • 6 C. Rolled Oats
  • 2 C. Brown Rice Cereal
  • 3 Scoops of Vanilla Protein 
  • 2 C. Sesame seeds
  • 1/2 C. Flax Seeds
  • 2 C. Sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 C. Wheat Germ
  • 1 C. Coconut Flakes -- unsweetened. 
  • 2 C. Canola Oil
  • 1/2 C. Coconut Oil --- Read Benefits of Coconut Oil here
  • 2 1/2 C. Agave Nectar 


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all dry ingredients

Mix Liquids until well blended ( I used a whisk)

Spread dry ingredients on to 2 separate non-stick cookie sheets

Pour 1/2 liquid on top of one pan and then the remaining on the top and stir together till coated evenly

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes and turn/stir granola -- then reduce heat to 250 and bake for 10-15 more minutes repeat until desired browness is achieved. (I did it for twice.)


This Granola was so good!!! Its addicting! You need to make this, then let me know how you liked it. This would be great to take to a party or share with your neighbors! You will become popular pretty fast. I mean, thats why I have so many friends..  haha! Love you all.. Have a good weekend! Tomorrow, we have a busy day! Swimming, Teaching, Baby shower, Cabelas and a group date night! Yay!! 
We may make more burgers ;)

P.S. Good luck to all my friends Running this weekend!! STG Ironman, SLC marathon, and Boston! Any body else have a race?! GOOD LUCK!!! 


  1. LOVE granola! I make batches for both our house and my parents house on the regular :) Coconut is definitely a requirement. Enjoy your weekend- sounds like you guys have some fun plans

  2. Ooo yummmmmy!!! Cant wait to make this!!!

  3. Thanks for this Candice will give this a go this weekend. Questions though: can I use just plain sugar? Also, what kind of coconut oil do you use? Virgin, unrefined, etc? Any brand you would recommend? Been looking around for some time now for a good coconut oil and so far this one appeals the most: Have you tried this yet?
