Coconut Almond Goji Berry Granola Recipe
Coconut Almond Goji Berry Granola, made in a skillet, nutritious and perfect for breakfast.
There is a picture overload in this post!
I’ve become pretty bad with breakfast in the last two weeks. I changed my workout routine and started having just a smoothie in the morning.
But I was missing my granola, so I decided to make some. I wonder how I survived two weeks without granola? It only took me 20 minutes to make this on the stove top.
I also loaded is with some good stuff like shredded coconut, almonds, raisins and dried goji berries. I try to make different kinds of granola all the time, but this recipe is already one of my favorite ones!
Making granola on the stove top saves so much time! In this recipe, it is important to toast the oats a little, but not dry them out completely. Then add some coconut oil and sweetener, almonds and shredded coconut. Add dried fruit like goji berries and raisins at the end. Why both goji berries and raisins? I like them both, but you can use just what you prefer.
Goji berries come from Asia and are used in Chinese medicine. They are usually available in their dried form here in the US. Natural antioxidant, rich in vitamin C and iron. I like to use them in granola, granola bars and smoothies.
Looking for a new crunchy, flavorful and easy to make granola recipe, why not try this one?
