Homemade granola with a tropical twist! Add in coconut chips, dried pineapple, and dried mango to make this refreshing and delicious granola. 


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ⅔ cup coconut chips
  • ½ cup whole almonds, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup dried pineapple, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup dried mango, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (162°C). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Prepare the granola: In a large bowl, mix together the old-fashioned oats, coconut chips, almonds, cashews, salt, light brown sugar, maple syrup, and olive oil. Toss everything together until well combined. Spread the granola out onto the prepared baking sheet, then bake for 23-25 minutes, stirring the mixture around at least once during baking.
  3. Add in the dried fruit: Remove the granola from the oven and let cool completely on the tray, then transfer to a bowl and toss with the dried blueberries. Enjoy!
  4. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for a few months.


  • Substitutions: I like the flavor of almonds and cashews in this recipe, but you can definitely swap them for other nuts if desired. I think walnuts would be delicious in this granola as well. 
  • Baking Time: I have found that 23-25 minutes is about the perfect baking time for this recipe. At the halfway mark, I like to remove the tray from the oven, stir everything around with my spatula, and return the tray to continue baking. This helps make sure everything bakes evenly. 
  • Storage: I love storing this granola in quart containers! They help keep the granola fresh, and they easily fit in the pantry.
