Spiced Tropical Granola

Spiced Tropical Granola with Yogurt


  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped (tip: 2 oz. bag is perfect size)
  • 1/4 cup flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup honey or agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp canola oil or light olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dried mango, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together in bowl (oats, nuts, flour, ginger, cinnamon, and coconut). In a separate bowl, whisk wet ingredients together (honey/agave, juice, vanilla, and oil). Add wet ingredients to dry and mix together thoroughly until dry ingredients are evenly coated with wet ingredients.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray or line the baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Spread oat mixture evenly on sheet. Bake for 50 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, stir granola on the sheet and turn over gently with a spatula, taking care that the outside edges do not burn. Remove from oven, mix in dried fruit, and set aside to cool. Granola will crisp as it cools. Once cooled, granola can be stored in an airtight container.
