Almond Joy Granola Recipe

Almond Joy Granola.  I have been slightly obsessed with coconut lately if you haven’t noticed.  You need to try this Almond Joy Granola!   What’s not to love?  I was not always a coconut fan, but have grown to love it in so many ways.

I already have Almond Joy Energy Bites and Almond Joy Waffles, so why not create Almond Joy Granola.  I have combined my love for coconut, with my love for granola to make this very tasty little snack.  This almond joy granola is a must try!

This is so good!  It may just be my new favorite.  I have to admit, though, this recipe was not going to be granola.  I was trying to do a baked oatmeal and when I went to pull them out of the muffin tins, they just fell apart.

But rather than toss it, I just threw it back in the oven for another 15 minutes and made it granola!  Glad I did too, because the coconut got toasty and sweet.  Yum!

We shot a short video for this recipe.   You can view it below.  For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube channel.

  1. Hi Melissa, your granola sounds terrific! I make granola often but haven't used applesauce in it before. Love it! I, too, adore coconut and always appreciate more ways to enjoy it. Our granola jar is empty, so I'll be making a batch soon!
  2. YUM! I cannot wait to make this! I like to make my own chocolate chunks. And they would be perfect for this. YUM.
      1. You could by mixing 1/4 cup coconut oil and 3 T cocoa powder. If you didn't want to make your own, you can just buy cacao nibs. They are sugar free chunks of raw chocolate. Naturally sugar free. They have a bitter taste though.
  3. I just finished making a batch of this granola and, based on my initial taste tests, it is delicious! I can't wait for breakfast to have a bowl with some milk! I only had 1/2 cup applesauce left so I topped it up with 1/4 cup mashed banana. I also used vanilla extract instead of almond due to my daughter's allergy. I also baked it for a bit longer than your recipe states - I left it in for a full hour in order to get it as crispy as we like it. I think this is going to be another favourite around here! So far, every recipe of yours that we have tried has been a yummy success! Thanks again!! :)
  4. This looks delicious! I have to say I absolutely LOVE your blog! I am pinning your recipes almost everyday!! I am sensitive to so many things so your recipes are sooo helpful! And they're easy, too! Thank you so so so much!
  5. HI - your recipes are amazing! cant wait to try :) im curious as to how long they will last for? and if they need to be stored a specific way??? im in a humid part of Australia.... if that matters!? thanks
  6. I was looking for the peanut butter cup granola recipe and I can't seem to find it now. Love the new category system for the recipes. Was there a reason that the peanut butter cup granola was left off? Please post or send it, it was one of my favorites.
    1. Hi Amanda! I am so sorry I had to remove it from my blog because it is going in my cookbook. It was part of my contract agreement. :(
  7. Thanks Melissa. I made this last night. Really nice flavor! I never thought to use applesauce to reduce the oil - good idea. Thank you!
  8. I made this last night. Really nice flavor! I used sliced almonds because that's what I had and it was fine. I never thought to use applesauce to reduce the oil - good idea. Thank you!
