This is one of my favorite granolas I’ve ever made. It is made with coconut oil, lightly toasted coconut and the zest of a lime. I could just live off of it (well, and a little chocolate here and there!) ;) This granola is great with some Greek yogurt and with blueberries or blackberries.

Coconut Lime Granola with Pecans, by Katrina, Baking and Boys!
4 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds (optional)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
zest of one lime
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup agave nectar (you could also use honey)
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flax, coconut, pecans, sunflower seeds, brown sugar, salt and lime zest. In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the oil and agave (or honey). Microwave for about 30 seconds. Whisk together well. Add the vanilla and whisk again. Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mixture and stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until well combined and all is moistened. Spread the granola on the baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for 22 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit on a wire rack until completely cool. Do not mix the granola while it’s cooling. Once cooled, break and crumble into chunks and pieces. Store in an airtight container.
