Toasted Coconut & Almond Granola
1 hr + 10 min
10 ingredients or less
(½ cup per serving)
Total1 hr + 10 min
3 cups (243 g)
1 cup (143 g)raw almonds, chopped
½ cup (72 g)
½ cup (62 g)raw sunflower seeds
¾ cup (56 g)unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup (120 mL)
¼ cup (54 g)refined coconut oil, melted†
Optional add-ins (after baked)
- Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C) and line a baking tray. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, almonds, seeds, and coconut.
- Pour the maple syrup, coconut oil, and salt over the oat mixture and toss it to coat. Transfer to the baking tray and bake on the centre rack of the oven for 60 - 70 minutes*, or until lightly golden. Stir every 15 - 20 minutes.
- When removed from the oven, let cool completely. It will continue to harden as it cools. If adding any dried fruits, stir it in now, then transfer the granola to an airtight container or large glass storage jar. Enjoy!
- †Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. If you prefer a distinct coconut taste, use unrefined coconut oil instead.
- Variations: add spices such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
- * Shorten the cooking time by turning up the heat a bit, but keep an eye on it and stir more frequently to avoid burning.
- Store sealed and on the counter for up to 3 weeks.

I make this granola every 2 weeks with little variations. My go to recipe, thank you!
I tried this recipe on Thursday and on Saturday I made the second batch already!
I used it in desserts I made for my birtbday party and many friends asked for the granol recipe :)
It is great!
Hugs from Cracow, Poland
It’s raining here quite a bit and warm granola sounded like a perfect meal/snack. I had everything in my pantry and the only change I made was adding cinnamon to the recipe. It was delicious. My daughter and I had it with a little cashew milk poured over it for a snack. The rest I stored in a glass jar. Yum!
Love this granola recipe, I made it once and could not stop eating it!!
Your granola recipe is amazing and super easy to follow, this is the second time I am trying this out and now I have completely stop buying ready granola from stores .... home made is the best. :)
This is my new favorite recipe. I’ve been making it every week. I’m a flight attendant and it’s been great to travel with. First I packed it in a ziplock bag and brought fresh berries and yogurt to make parfaits. Now I add freeze dried mixed berries from Trader Joe’s after it cools and just eat it as a cereal. Nothing to refrigerate (I use individually packaged plant based milk) means more room in my cooler for the rest of my meals. This is SO GOOD and keeps me full for hours. I even made parfaits for the crew and they all agreed—this granola is delicious! Thank you!
It cooked so well!! And the whole house has such a nice aroma of flavors! So excited to add it on top of my chia pudding!
I love this recipe, heavy on the things I like. It is now my go-to granola. I like to meal prep 1 cereal option per week and this is on rotation with Bircher muesli.
Hi! Thank you for this nice granola recipe. Also my boyfriend loves that recips eventhough he's normally the type of refined cereals...so that he likes it means a lot!
I love to add a bit of shredded coconut after bacing - that makes it taste even more like summer!
I make this all the time! It’s just sooo much better than the shop bought stuff. Thanks for sharing.
Made this also. Lovely and tasty. Love how many things you make with nuts in. Big nut fan :) love you so much!
I loved them all. So bad we don´t have you here in Brazil!!! :(
Make it all the time. Bought some granola a few weeks ago, I had no time to make it. Not the same. I live it with blueberries.
This is the best granola I’ve ever eaten. It’s better than the ones in the stores from which my stomach bloats and hurts. Thank you!!!
This is my favourite granola recipe. Love adding in some cacao to make a chocolate version. Served with fruit and yogurt, SO GOOD!!
Dear Sadia, I love all your recipes! I frequently gift this granola to friends and family in a nice little jar - if I do not eat all of it myself first :) Thank you for all your great work! All the best from Austria
I absolutely loved it! It's the first granola recipe I've actually liked and didnt burn so yay!
Finally got around to trying this last night! It is absolutely amazing. Made the whole house smell incredible. My husband is obsessed with it and almost are half a jar of it before I took it away from him LOL. Will definitely be making this again!!
Is there a way to turn them into Granola Bars using more Maple syrup or Brown Sugar???
I made this several times now and I enjoy it every time! Goes very well with blueberries (both fresh and frozen)
The shredded coconut in the video looks like desiccated coconut, is that correct or is there a difference? Will make soon as soon as I know which coconut to buy. :) Thank you in advance!
Love all of ur recipes 💛 thank you so much for your videos, website, and articles as well.
I love how easy this is! And it’s SO tasty 😋
Delicious and very easy!
My husband is a huge granola head, and we both love this! I like to mix a handful dark chocolate & carob chips at the end for a sweeter treat. Thank you for the awesome breakfast ideas, as always!
This is the beeeeeeest granola I have ever made! I was actually kind of skeptical on cooking it on such a low heat for so long but wow it turned out amazing. I tried it halfway through and I was like, “oh, yeah, this is gonna be amazing.” I made everything to the T, except I added cinnamon and left out sunflower seeds since I didn’t have any. Thank you so much for everything you do, pick up limes! Everything I have tried from you is delicious!!!!!
Recipe was easy to follow and tastes absolutely delicious. This is the beginning of my new healthy eating thanks to Pick Up Limes.
Love it! Thank you Sadia 🤍
Love love ❤️
This is my go-to granola recipe. I’ve taken it to multiple events and everybody always wants the recipe.
Everything you make is delicious.
I’m so glad I found you.
Currently in my 1st trimester of pregnancy and everything sounds terrible EXCEPT your recipes. You’re keeping me fed and nourished.
We have made this recipe several times and just love it! Homemade is so much better and you can personalize this recipe to make it your own!
Pick Up Limes is amazing!!
Love the crunch and the nutty flavor!
This recipe is perfection. So delicious and very easy to make. Really easy!
I make it weekly. I highly recommend this granola.
Made this recipe last night and couldn’t wait to have it for breakfast this morning! Delicious! Perfect amount of sweetness for us. We added in the optional hemp seeds and ate it like a cereal, with oat milk and frozen blueberries. This will be a staple in our house.
Sending appreciation from South FL 😊
I’ve made this three times now. It’s my new favorite snack/breakfast/dessert.
Delicious and easy to make. My whole family enjoys this - for breakfast, for midnight snacks. This has become a go to recipe made on repeat.
This is a really nice granola recipe. I use this as my go-to recipe for breakfast ever since I made it for the first time. My family loves it too.
Love this granola. I make it almost every weekend to have through the work week. I also add ground flaxseed after the bale, along with hemp seeds, chia seeds, and sometimes chocolate. This is great with yogurt and fresh fruit!!
I make this all the time! It's amazing. Thank you :)
My go to breakfast cereal!
I have made this numerous times and it is so easy and flavorful! By far the best granola!
What a great granola recipe! I've made it several times and we reach for a bit every time we're looking for a snack. I've found using a baking pan that has an edge is less messy when stirring during roasting. Love the flexibility using different nuts and seeds.
I LOVE THIS GRANOLA! I made it last week and use it daily in various things in the kitchen.
This granola, mixed into coconut yogurt, has become a breakfast staple for me. 🥰
Amazing! Thank you from Russia :)
So good!! Thank you 😊
Thank you for this wonderful recipe! It’s so easy to make and so so flavorful. Best granola recipe out there for sure. I absolutely adore your videos on YouTube and love making your recipes. You’re such an inspiration with your happy bubbly personality and your approach to life! 🌸🌱
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! I had all the ingredients on hand and assembled them in no time at all. I added dried mulberries and cacao nibs. I'll definitely play with this recipe more!
I love this recipe! easy and tasteful! I really do not want to buy already made granola because it contains so much added fat and sugars. This recipe is the solution!
I love this recipe! Sometimes I switch up the nuts to pecans or walnuts... or add vanilla and orange zest. Such a versatile and easy recipe. Comes together quickly and even the non-granola lovers in my family love it! Yet another winner from your amazing website.
I just finished my delicious breakfast. Thank you so much for this incredible granola recipe 😋
I’ve always hated store bought granola, but decided to try to make this as a quick breakfast option at least for my husband who loves granola. This granola is AMAZING! I can see it becoming a regular part of our morning routine.
Love this recipe! So easy and delicious!
A great recipe. I add 1/2 uncooked kinoa. Loved it.... 😍
This is such a good recipe! I love how it is so versatile. I omitted the coconut flakes, and added chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Everyone loved it, thank you so much!
I make this all the time! It's amazing.
The best granola I ever tasted! Thank you!
So good, thank you!
My new go-to recipe for delicious, easy-to-make granola!!
Chopping the raw almonds stimulates some really nice time for mindfulness. Such is my blossoming hippie comment for the day ...
Soo delicious!! Pairs perfectly with strawberry yogurt :)
This recipe is now a big hit in my office. Everyone is obsessed!!
I love the idea of making my own granola and this recipe sounds amazing (like all your recipes). I currently have the first batch in the oven and it smells amazing but I am wondering if there is a way to make this oil free? Unsweetened applesauce maybe?
So this is probably the most successful recipe I have used for granola! I used walnuts instead of almonds and added chia seeds, dried mango, and chocolate...and woah it is absolutely out of this world amazing! Thank you for all the beautiful recipes, I love your mantra and creativity with food :)
This is the recipe I discovered you with, a while ago, and since then you are part of my life on Instagram and YouTube.
I bake regularly a big batch, and the smell in the house is amazing.
Thank you for all your recipes, they are versatile and easy to make, and it is such a pleasure to watch you in the process.
A big hug for you guys!
I truly love each and every one of your recipes Sadia - and I love you guys as well, have a wonderful Christmas together and stay safe. Huge hugs from me, Christina in Scotland 🏴
Wow! Best granola I ever made, thank you!!
I mixed this into your Banana Coffee Muffin recipe and the results were great :o)
Amazing! Best granola.
This is SUCH A DELICIOUS granola!
I think it's the coconut addition that makes it for me. Yum!
I've been making my own granola now for nearly 2 years. And I love the variations that you offer. I especially this one.
i made this recipe and it was delicious, i left out the sun flower seed because of food sensitivity. definitely making it again.
Yum. Made this before a festival and friends loved it. Great crunch and great ingredients.
The original measurements of maple make the granola super sweet (to sweet for my preference)
So next time will use the 1/3 cup tip :)
Hi Sadia, many thanks for this simple yet incredible recipe. I made it and it turned out wonderful. I love having it for breakfast.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you many congratulations for your engagement.
And , you inspired me to donate to refugees. Thank you very much for letting me be a part of the good work.
There is no option here to post a picture otherwise I would have loved to show how the granola turned out . Thanks!! 😊
I am so happy about this recipe!! I sometimes do the healthiest ever granola and sometimes do the toasted coconut almond granola, coconut is one of my favourite ingredients and eating this with yoghurt and dried cranberries for breakfast makes the start of my day a burst of sunshine!!
This is our favorite granola ever! I always liked the coconut granola from trader Joe's but it was a bit too sweet. We love it so much and can't believe how easy it can be to make! Enjoy all your recipes and you are inspiring!
First off, congratulations on your engagement!! You both are my example of what a perfect harmonious couple looks like, so thanks for setting that role model for us viewers. I also am super appreciative for your thoughtful Youtube videos and the updated PUL website. I've been following you ever since your first video (when they were a bit shaky) and haven't stopped loving your nutritional advice and yummy recipes. I've watched your "5 Foods I Eat Everyday, and so could you" probably over 40 times! The advice on there is so helpful that I am using that video to teach my mom about basic daily nutrition since she has high cholesterol issues.
Back to the main reason why I messaged you for this coconut & almond granola recipe - I have a couple of questions:
1) I have raw coconut meat; I took off the brown skin - can I shred that and add to the granola mixture and then bake it? Or do I bake the raw shredded coconut separately (at a lower temperature and in less time) and then add it to the granola after it has baked in the oven?
2) You suggested adding cinnamon and/or pumpkin spice - do I add these before or after baking the granola in the oven?
Thanks so much for your time! I look forward to more granola recipes from you! Miss Tea Time Tuesday - please bring that back!!
Lots of Love,

In my mind, before I discovered your video I tought "damn granola seems so good but it takes a lot of time". Since 3 weeks I made this recipe every weekend for my breakfast in the week ! I just love it ! And it's super easy !!! And I'm so found of your work too, thank you :D
Best toasted granola recipe. Very delicious and so easy to make.
I've been trying a lot of different granola recipes. So far, this is my favorite. Tastes great!
I started eating more plant based and your YouTube channel and website is one of my favorites. I'm even guilty reading your recipe's at work lol (I bet a lot of us do lol) ,This recipe is our favorites! I'm actually having it right now with Greek yoghurt. I have tried many of your recipe's and this inspired me to keep on eating more plant based and take good care more of my and my families health. Who knew plant based foods can be delicious and affordable. You and your team are amazing! please keep doing what you do :D
Thank you. We, canadians from the North...like..waaay north lol
I just tried the recipe and my entire family loved it! Its going to be our go to breakfast and we wont buy granola from now on!
I used coconut sugar turned into syrup and used my airfryer on low heat to crisp it faster..Thanks alot
One of my all-time fave! 🧡
My breakfast go-to! 😍
This is my ride or die granola! When I’m batch making granola this is the recipe I use. It’s super versatile, keeps super well in the pantry and goes with anything, yogurt, milk, on a smoothie, I’ve even had it with apple sauce. I think the long bake at a low heat helps to bring out a really nice caramel-y flavor.
I’ve shared jars with my mom and friends and they say it’s one of the best they’ve had! Great as a cute gift if you’re homemaking presents.
Love the simplicity of this recipe and the taste is great!
So delicious! Never really liked store-bought granola and this is the first time I tried one myself. I had date syrup at home and used it instead, turned out amazing:)
So, so delicious! I ended up adding a tbsp each of chia and hemp seeds and 2 tbsp of raisins, from the optional add-ins. It's coconutty crispy goodness all round!
It's amazing receip
Wow, look at the content quality and the new website!! This is amazing work guys! That’s a better upgrade, apple should learn from you! 😅 big fan of PUL recipes and the wholesome content!!
I love your recipes, especially this one. I made it so many times and I'm always coming back for more. It's so delicious.😍 Thank you so much for your hard work. In my opinion one can really feel how much love and care you put into your recipes. I'm really grateful to you and your team. ☺️
Absolutely delicious! So easy to make and the taste is sooooooooooo good❤️
This granola is so delicious! I'm glad I added the cinnamon to it, 'cause it just made it even better. I'm in love with it!
Loved this recipe! I added some additional almond butter, just because I had it on hand :) It was very simple to make and I gave a big jar to my Dad for his birthday :)
BEST EVER GRANOLA! The first and only granola recipe I´ve tried, super easy to make. After tasting it for the first time I instantly knew there was no need to look for another recipe ever again.
I have no words to describe how amazing this granola is. I make it almost every week. Thank you for sharing this recipe! <3
This granola is so simple yet so amazing! 😍 I made it yesterday for the first time and had it this morning for breakfast with fruits and coconut yogurt. Delicious!
One of my fav granola recipes. I’ve made it like a hundred times already 🙂 Easy and very tasty loaded with healthy ingredients. Thank you for this wonderful recipe 🙂🙂
This was my first time making homemade granola and I'm so glad I picked this recipe! It's perfectly sweet and great to have a cereal or with yogurt or just on its own (especially warm out of the oven) I will definitely be making this again and again
Thank you for this! I've been enjoying it as breakfast or as a snack with some plant based yogurt. Great as always.
This was one of the very first PUL recipe I made and it bowled me over. No number of stars do it justice.
Thank you so much for sharing this quick, easy and delicious recipe! Made it without the sunflower seeds, but it turned out absolutely delicious and so so crunchy. I don't think I will ever go for store-bought granola again and I can't wait to try your other granola recipes as well!
Love your channel and everything that you share <3
A great breakfast and snack option! It's toasty in flavor and crunchy in texture, not overly sweet and so so easy to make~
Fantastic and so yummy
I love making all the recipes I have so far. Love the smoothies and granola. These recipes are flavorful and have opened my eyes that vegan eating can taste wonderful and not boring. I am trying to eat healthier and lose a lot of weight. It needs to become a way of life for me. You recipes have really helped. Thank you !!
My question is how long is the granola good for after making it?
This granola has become a staple for me, I love enjoying it as cereal or atop smoothie bowls. I have been following PUL since 2018, and just wanted to say THANK YOU for pouring your hearts into the content you create. The website is INCREDIBLE! <3
Hey Sadia! ☺️ Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe – I have never made my own granola before and I just love it!😋
Keep up your amazing work – you really help me to cook and eat more healthy meals!
P.S. your website looks so pretty!
I made this granola and it was sooo good. I'll do it again, that's for sure! I also checked the calories again the "low sugar" store bought and it was the same, while the taste of the home made was a 100 times better.
Fantastic yet simple granola! Another recipe proving that few ingredients can yield good results👏🏼
Crunchy, not too sweet (despite the maple syrup), and a discrete coconut flavour that suits everything. Amazing topping for smoothies.
I started making this recipe a year ago and never looked back at the store bought ones. Thank you for this!
Hi Sadie and the PUL team,
I made your toasted coconut and almond granola today. It's turned out so well!! My partner was eating it out of the roasting dish :)
I'm thrilled that I will no longer need to buy store granola.
I love your YouTube channel - tomorrow I'll be making your potato and pea curry, with Naan bread.
I love good food!
A big thank you!!
