Granola is officially one of my favorite things to make myself. There are certain store bought brands that I love, but homemade definitely takes the cake.

This coconut chai spiced granola recipe is the third granola recipe I’ve shared on the blog, and I think it might take the cake. Ben proclaimed that this recipe is the best one yet without hesitation. It has tons of chai spiced flavor, thanks to cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and cloves. Combined with rich coconut and caramel-y dates, I just can’t get enough.

Tips for making this coconut chai spiced granola

  • Use old fashioned rolled oats. Quick and steel cut oats do not provide the right texture for granola, so make sure you are using old fashioned rolled oats.
  • Bake low and slow. We bake this granola at a lower temperature (325 degrees F) to prevent burning while it bakes for ~30 minutes.
  • Don’t mix the granola while it is baking. Spread the granola into one large “sheet” and don’t mix it! Baking at a lower temperature prevents burning, and by not mixing the granola, it allows us to have those giant clusters.
  • Let granola cool completely before breaking into clusters. The granola will harden as it sits and cools, so wait until it is room temperature to break it up into clusters.
  • Store in a wide, shallow airtight container. Carefully layer the big granola clusters in a wide, shallow container instead of a tall, narrow one to maintain the structure.
