Nate's Chunky Monkey Granola
Servings: 19 (⅓ cup servings)
A perfectly sweet and crunchy homemade granola with banana chips, toasted macadamia nuts, mini chocolate chips and dried pineapple. Great with a bowl of yogurt and fresh fruit or eaten by the handful any time of day.
- 4 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup melted coconut oil
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¾ cup mini chocolate chips
- ¾ cup banana chips, broken into smaller pieces
- ½ cup dried pineapple, chopped into bite sized pieces
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, macadamia nuts, and salt. Add coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla and stir until well combined.
Spread combined granola onto prepared sheet pan. Bake for 23-24 minutes, mixing half way through baking time.
Leave the granola to cool completely. Move the cooled granola to a large mixing bowl and mix in the dried fruits and chocolate chips. I like to pick up the parchment paper or silicone mat and pour the granola into the mixing bowl from the parchment paper.
Store granola in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks. It won't last that long.
