This Coconut Granola with Almonds and Cardamom is a nutrient-packed granola recipe sweetened with honey and scented with the warm flavors of cardamom and cinnamon. This will make your house smell beyond amazing as it bakes!
In a large mixing bowl, add the honey (or other sweetener) and coconut oil. Microwave for 20 seconds, until warmed slightly. Stir until coconut oil melts (if solid to start), and add in vanilla extract, cardamom, cinnamon, and salt. (alternatively, you can melt this on the stovetop).
Add the oats, 1/2 cup of the coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and raisins to the bowl. Mix together until the mixture is coated in the coconut oil and honey mixture.
Spread in a thin layer on the prepared baking sheet; bake for approximately 20 minutes until lightly toasted.
Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes without stirring. Add the remaining 1/2 cup coconut.
Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container or bag for up to two weeks in your pantry.
