Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. I bought a non- toxic cookie sheet and I love it!
Spread granola mix evenly over cookie sheet.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly brown on top.
Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Store in a ziplock bag or mason jar.
*Coconut oil can be refined or unrefined. Using unrefined will give you more of a coconut flavor.
*I like to eat this granola as a breakfast cereal with coconut milk. It's also great as a topping for yogurts or fruit!
*You can add things like cranberries, raisins, or almonds.
