Homemade Coconut Granola

I love yogurt topped with fresh fruit and crunchy granola or I like granola in a bowl with milk or just to eat it by itself. Ok so I just like granola any way! All the store bought granolas seem to have a ton of added sugars and those that don't just aren't that flavorful. This Homemade Coconut Granola is so dang good I can't stop eating it. It is made with superfoods like walnuts, almonds, pepitas, chia seeds and coconut oil and sweetened with maple syrup. It's a natural and healthy way to get my granola fix. It's so delicious and filling making it the perfect breakfast or snack food. My favorite way to eat it is over Coconut Yogurt for a quick, delicious and healthy breakfast.
