What You Will Need

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup candy-coated chocolate candies
  • 3/4 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut
  • 4 drops green food coloring


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Melt coconut oil slowly in the microwave.
  • Add honey to coconut oil and stir.
  • Mix oats and almonds on a large cookie sheet. Pour honey mixture over oats and then stir to combine.
  • Spread out on cookie sheet and bake for 14 - 18 minutes stirring occasionally. Granola is done when it is golden brown. Watch closely and do not burn.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Mix coconut with green food coloring in a small bowl.
  • In a large bowl, mix cooled granola, green coconut, chocolate candies, and cranberries. Your granola is ready to serve or pour into your mason jar container.
  • This recipe makes just a little more than will fit in one quart-sized mason jar. You can enjoy the leftover granola as you package your gift.
