macadamia coconut granola

Happy New Year! Let’s kick off 2017 on a healthy note with honey-sweetened macadamia coconut granola. Inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii, macadamia nuts and toasted coconut chips add a decidedly tropical feel to each golden cluster.

Topped with gorgeous berries and jeweled pomegranate arils, this is just the granola to brighten up winter mornings (and also makes a fabulous midnight snack!).

Macadamia Coconut Granola

Macadamia Coconut Granola


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut chips


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Combine oats, macadamia nuts, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add coconut oil, honey, and vanilla; toss to coat. Whisk egg white in a small bowl until frothy (about 1 minute); add to oat mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Use an offset spatula to spread mixture into an even layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, then use a large spatula to flip sections of granola. Press back into an even layer, rotate pan, and bake another 20-25 minutes. When granola is golden and feels dry to the touch, turn off oven and leave pan in oven for another 10 minutes to continue drying.
  3. Remove pan from oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely (the granola crisps as it cools). When completely cool, break into clusters and stir in toasted coconut chips. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks.


If your oven runs hot, bake granola at 290°F.

  2. Nom! Gorgeous and delicious granola to ring in the New Year on a healthy note. I’m addicted to granola in my homemade almond milk and cannot wait to try your recipe. Thank you for sharing, Laura! Wishing you and yours a boatload of blessings and much happiness in the New Year!

  3. Hi. Just came across this recipe. I have made some other granolas with the large coconut chips, but they were added to the raw oats and toasted while in the oven as the granola cooked. Have you tried this way of doing it? It seems somewhat easier. Thanks

    1. Hi there! Yes you can add large coconut flakes right to the oat mixture. Just keep an eye on it while in the oven so that the coconut doesn’t burn.
