Almond Joy Granola

Almond Joys were my favorite candy growing up, and I could eat them one right after another. Now that I’m older, I try to enjoy them in a more responsible way. 🙂

This Almond Joy granola is almost like eating candy for breakfast– and who doesn’t love that? Made without oil or butter – and with very little refined sugar – this granola is a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilt.


Almond Joy Granola

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup more almonds, or other nuts/seeds of choice
  • 2-4 tablespoons granulated sweetener (optional)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300° and grease a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, cereal, nuts/seeds, and, if using, the sweetener.
  3. Pour in the maple syrup and stir until coated, then stir in the almond and coconut extracts.
  4. Spread the granola evenly onto the sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. When the granola has cooled completely, stir in the chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
