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. 
Print Recipe


  • 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.
