Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola

5 Ingredient Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola. Great for breakfast or as a snack. So much better than store-bought!

Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola | chefsavvy.com #recipe #granola #coconut #snack It’s no secret that I love granola. It makes an awesome snack or breakfast and is so easy to make at home. I love coming up with new flavor combinations for granola. Maple Pecan, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Nutella Skillet Granola are just a few of my favorites.

This granola is loaded with shredded coconut, coconut oil, honey, pecans and chocolate chips. It has tons of coconut flavor and big clusters with the perfect amount of sweetness.

Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola | chefsavvy.com #recipe #granola #coconut #snack It’s loaded with coconut flavor thanks to the coconut oil and the shredded coconut. If you haven’t tried coconut oil you’ve gotta give it a try. The coconut oil and honey hold everything together and help get the large clusters everyone loves. They are melted in the microwave to make it easier to coat the old fashioned oats.

This recipe is ridiculously simple to make. Only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time. To make the granola start by melting the coconut oil and honey in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. Toss with the rest of the ingredients and place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and allow the granola to cool. The granola with get crunchier as it cools. (It tends to be sort of soft when it first comes out of the oven.) Toss cooled granola with chocolate chips and enjoy.

Serve the granola with milk or on top of Greek yogurt.

Substitute your favorite nuts or dried fruits.  You can even add some wheat germ or flax seed to boost up the nutrition value in this granola.

  • The fact that I haven’t had breakfast yet and I’m looking at your post is pure torture! That granola looks so good. I can imagine the chocolate and coconut having a party in my mouth. Mmmm… I bet it would taste like the Mounds candies. Great job!

  • Cherri

    Love this granola, did a lil tweakin by adding a lil more honey and chai seeds. Great stuff

  • Kim

    Made this tonight. Used almonds in lieu of pecans and sprinkled in a little cinnamon. Super flexible and delicious recipe. Thank you!

  • Shanta

    What can be used instead of coconut oil and coconut is it dessicated or fresh

  • Brynne

    Just made this and it’s sooo delicious! The only suggestion I have for anyone making it is to add a little sprinkle of salt across the top right when it gets out of the oven, added some extra zing 🙂 I used shaved almonds as well which were awesome!

  • nicky

    I made this today. Took others’ advice and added cinnamon, some sea salt, and flax seed. I think it’s delicious!! My daughter LOVES coconut, so she was thrilled. And my house smells delicious! 🙂

  • Steph

    I would love to add the chai seeds and flax seeds as others have suggested. Do you add them after the granola comes out of the oven? Or mix them in with the granola before it goes into the oven?

    • Hi Steph,

      You want to add the chai seeds and flax seeds with the other ingredients before it goes in the oven.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

    This is such a great recipe! It has become my go to recipe for granola since my husband loves coconut. I even get a little panic stricken when I don’t have some on hand. It makes a good snack, too. I like using mini chocolate chips and putting them in just before the granola is completely cooled so they melt just enough to stick to the granola, but not enough to coat it. That way they don’t sink to the bottom of my container! Thanks so much!

  • Becky

    I make this recipe constantly. I love how insanely easy it is but don’t love how quickly my family gobbles it up. :o) Silly question but I am planning to make this for a gluten free pot luck – if I use gluten free oats, will it still turn out as delicious? Thanks!

    • Hi Becky,

      I am so glad you enjoy this granola!! It is hard to say for sure how the gluten free oats will do in this recipe because I personally have not tried it. I think they will be a good substitute though and should work.

      Let me know how it turns out for you!

  • Tena

    Can this be made, making it soft instead of crunchy. I don’t really really care for hard granola.

    • Hi Tena,

      I would try not too cook this as long. You can also add a bit more coconut oil to make it softer.

      Thanks!

        This looks wonderful; all my favorite things! Could I use sweetened coconut that I have on hand? What amount of honey should be reduced? Thank you!

        • Hi Rachel,

          It is hard to say because I have never made it with sweetened coconut before. I would try adding around 3-4 tablespoons of honey (which is about half of the amount called for). I would start there and taste. If you need it to stick a little more add some more coconut oil.

          Thanks & Enjoy!

    Just made this and can’t wait for it to cool. Just thought I would add after reading some of the comments that oats are gluten free but often get contaminated with gluten in the processing. Oats labeled gluten free are just certified that they are processed in a gluten free facility. 🙂

  • Lauren

    This was the first time I’ve made granola and it was soo good I could’ve eaten the whole batch in 1 sitting!!

    Question, is it possible to make this granola into a bar? Would i just press it into a small pan to cool when I take it out of the oven?

    • Hi Lauren,

      I am so glad you enjoyed this granola! I have not tried making a granola recipe into granola bars before so it is hard to say for sure. I would imagine you might need to add more honey to make it stay together? And I would try putting it in a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan.

      I hope this helps! Thanks!

    I have no coconut oil. What do I use? I got butter? Or Vegtable Oil… 🙁

  • Sandy

    Is the coconut oil measured in liquid or solid? 1/4 of solid coconut oil isn’t the same as measuring it in its liquid form, so I just want to be sure I’m using the right form.

    • Hi Sandy,

      I measure it out in a dry measuring cup. (I keep my coconut oil in the pantry and it’s typically pretty hard.)

      Thanks!

    My husband is a diabetic and loves granola. I was wondering if you might have the nutritional value or the total carbohydrates in your granola.? I am going to make it because it sounds yummy!

  • Brett Palmer

    Do we have nutritional value for this per serving? It is delicious!!
