Almond Joy Granola // Do you like almonds, coconut, and chocolate together? This Almond Joy Granola would be perfect! Make this to enjoy in your breakfast parfait, afternoon snacks, or after dinner treat! | Tried and TastyI’m a granola fanatic. You may or may not know that about me already. My favorite is my Easy Toss and Bake Granola, but I also love my Coconut Butter, Coconut Almond, Honey Apple, Honey Almond, and Peanut Butter Granola. You may have also noticed I love Almond Joy’s as well (i.e. my No-So-Guilty Almond Joy Trifle). I figured it was time for a new granola recipe and couldn’t have picked a better more delicious version!

I got the idea that this would make a great neighbor gift for the holidays because this past Spring I used granola as a gift. When Steve and I got our pictures taken by the lovely Brittany Marie Photography, I was so head over heels in love with how they turned out, I needed to make a treat! Again, since I’m on a health journey, I wanted to make something that was both healthy and delicious. So I made granola. She LOVED it! With the right packaging, it’s the most darling gift around! I used some of the Lily’s Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips that I had on hand from my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie and they were perfect!

Ingredients

  • 2.5 c. rolled oats
  • 1 c. unsweetened coconut flake
  • 1 c. raw almonds roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp. organic cane sugar
  • ¼ tsp. of salt
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. almond butter
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup
  • 1/3 c. Lily’s Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips
  • 1/3 c. yogurt chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees.   

  2. In a large bowl, mix the oats, coconut flakes, sugar, salt, and almonds together.

  3. In a small skillet over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil, almond butter, and maple syrup, and pour over the dry ingredients. Mix well.

  4. Spread the mixture evenly onto one large or two small baking sheets (be careful not to crowd the granola) and bake for 20-25 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir to ensure even baking. Watch carefully the last five or so minutes as the granola can burn quickly. 

  5. Once the granola is visibly browned, remove from the oven and let cool completely. Once cooled, add Lily’s Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips and toss.

  6. Store in an air-tight container. Yields approx. 20 quarter-cup servings.

Recipe Notes

If you wanted, you can add the chocolate chips to the granola right out of the oven while the granola is still warm so it melts and coats the granola if you'd prefer!
