Healthy Chunky Granola

Cherry Chocolate Add-ins


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a medium or large baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside for later.
  2. Add all ingredients except coconut oil and maple syrup to a large bowl. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Add coconut oil and maple syrup. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until well mixed.
  4. Pour mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a rubber spatula, press down and pack the granola mixture together to create an even, flat, and very tightly-packed layer, about ½ inch thick. Your granola may not cover the entire baking sheet. Now, nudge the sheet of granola apart in the center (dividing the tightly-packed layer in half), to let air through.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Rotate baking sheet. Bake for 18-22 more minutes, until granola is a deep golden brown. Mine took 40 minutes total. Do not flip or move granola—it is fragile and needs to crisp up while cooling.
  6. Place baking sheet on a cooling rack. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes, or until completely cooled and firm. Break sheets of granola into clusters. Fold in cherries and chocolate. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
