Description

A fragrant granola with a good amount of chai spice, coconut, and almonds, but a bit of coconut oil really makes all the flavors come together!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoons Ginger Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cardamom
  • 1-½ cup Rolled Oats
  • ¼ cups Quick Cook Oats
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • ½ cups Whole Unsalted Almonds, Roughly Chopped
  • ¼ cups Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Almond Extract
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ cups Roughly Chopped Dried Figs (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a small bowl, whisk together ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ginger powder, and ground cardamom. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine rolled oats, quick-cook oats, coconut flakes, and almonds.

In another small bowl, mix honey, coconut oil, light brown sugar, almond extract, and salt until fully combined.

Add wet mixture and spice mixture to dry ingredients and mix until evenly combined. (The mixture will come together in clumps. I find it is easiest to use my hands.)

Spread mixture out an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, stirring halfway through, until light golden and fragrant, 20-22 minutes. Watch the granola carefully in the last few minutes of baking and remove if it gets darker than a golden brown.

Remove granola from oven and immediately add figs (if using), stirring to combine. Allow to cool completely at room temperature. (Granola will be soft when it comes out of the oven but will crisp as it cools.) Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Soooo delicious! My children asked to have it for dessert! It was really easy to make, only next time I will double the recipe. We only got 5 small portions out of it. Also will reduce the amount of salt next time. Other than that, absolutely perfect!
