This easy, gluten-free Cinnamon Coconut Granola is one of my kiddos favorites. And it’s easy enough that they can make it themselves!

All the breakfast love.
There’s no doubt in my mind that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, not to mention my favorite. Unless you count dessert… Seriously, though, I love breakfast and can quite often be found eating it for lunch and dinner, as well. ‘Cause pancakes, waffles, and coffee cake can be very versatile. 😉
And I’m proud to say that one thing I’ve passed down to my kids is a love of all things breakfast. Their first kitchen jobs was flipping pancakes, and from there they graduated to smoothie-making, and now my oldest is moving up to granola!
Next generation cooks.
Though the original recipe for this granola came from my mom, my 9-year modified it a few times, cutting out sugars and other ingredients until she ended up with this delicious granola. Well, I’m really only guessing that it’s delicious by the way my family devours it. I, sadly, can’t tolerate oats – not even certified gluten-free ones. 🙁
But, anyway, I’m happy to add this Cinnamon Coconut Granola to my arsenal of healthy and delicious breakfasts I can feed my family. And I’m even happier that I don’t have to make it for them. My daughter takes care of that herself! And she does a pretty durn good job, if I do say so myself.
It feels pretty good to have worked myself out of the “resident granola-maker” job. 😉
