Easy homemade granola recipe made with coconut, pecan, chocolate chip and maple syrup.
What is your favorite cereal to enjoy for breakfast?
For me it would be granola well, really Cap'n Crunch, but that's for another blog post. I really do love granola. I love to have it on top of yogurt or on top of a cracker spread with peanut butter or just in a bowl with milk. I'm sharing with you today a very easy recipe for homemade coconut pecan chocolate chip granola. Your family is going to love it almost as much as mine.

I love granola because it is very easy to make but the one thing I don't love about granola is the price. It is really expensive these days to purchase granola from the grocery store. Which is why I love this recipe AND you can add basically anything to this recipe when it's done baking. I added mini chocolate chips because it adds a little extra sweetness to the crunch of the oats and pecans. And if you don't like coconut, you can leave that out from the recipe. Either way, you are going to LOVE this recipe!
This is a pretty basic recipe and you can add pretty much anything after the granola has cooked and cooled that your family loves. I love adding mini chocolate chips and dried fruit.
Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola
4 cups oats - not instant
3/4 cup pecans
1/3 cup coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup oil
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips - added after the granola has cooked and cooled.
In a small saucepan, heat the oil, honey, syrup and vanilla.
Combine the oats, pecans, coconut, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon together in a mixing bowl.
Pour the warmed oil, honey, syrup and vanilla on top and stir to combine.
Spread onto a baking tray that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes stirring every ten minutes.
Set your timer so you don't forget to stir or the granola will burn.
Once the granola has cooled, stir in the mini chocolate chips or dried fruit.
Store in a plastic container for 2 weeks. I like to use Ball jars to store the granola. They keep the granola really fresh and it looks pretty in my pantry or on the counter.
These are the Mason jars I use to store my granola and other pantry items.
I use them for my beans, rice, pasta, salt and peppercorns and so much more.
Maple Syrup can be expensive, but thankfully a little goes a long way in this recipe.
Make sure you use the right oatmeal. You do not want to use instant.
This homemade granola recipe is really easy and delicious.
I know your family will enjoy it and you'll enjoy knowing your're saving money by making it at home!
