This Coconut Apricot Granola recipe is so easy to make and so delicious that you’ll never buy granola again.
My youngest daughter can be very picky when it comes to breakfast food. And to be honest, things can get a little complicated at times. I have tried everything, egg-free pancakes, arepas, etc. but what she likes most is yogurt with granola and berries. Can you blame her? It’s a delicious combination. So having homemade granola at hand it’s a MUST for me.
I’m also a big granola fan. And this recipe it’s unbelievably good! So addictive, I can’t stop snacking on it throughout the day. I love snacking minus the guilt.
Salty. Sweet. Crunchy. Nutty. Fruity…Divine! Plus, It’s the perfect way to start your day since it’s packed full of goodness.
This granola could be as versatile as your taste is. The possibilities are endless. Try mixing up others nut and dried fruit combos. Like, pistachios and cranberries or hazelnuts and figs… mmmm!
