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.

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.

How to make Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola

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.
