As you know, I’ve been traveling and visiting friends and family, and now currently on Martha’s Vineyard. I’ve got a few delicious cookbooks posts coming you way, but in the meantime enjoy this simple but delicious recipe for Coconut Granola. It also makes a great travel snack!
Keeping with the raw movement, I decided to test out a granola that needed no baking. By combining some amazing products, I was able to make a delicious granola that you could have ready in less than 8 minutes! By using Tropical Traditions Unsweetened Coconut and Coach Oats, I achieve great chewiness to this granola without adding any preservatives or fake sugars. If you’d like a sweetener granola, drizzle some organic maple syrup and done!

2 tablespoons Raw Almond Butter
3 tablespoons Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil

1 cup Coach Oats
1/4 cup Tropical Traditions unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/4 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate chunks

- In a medium bowl, combine oats, coconut and chocolate chunks. Drizzle with nut butter and oil mixture and stir until combined. Add seeds, nuts and dried fruit!
