TOASTED COCONUT GRANOLA

I ran out of my regular smoothie bowl topper and decided to have a go at making my own granola. I’d never made granola before, but I think that this batch turned out pretty good. It’s super simple to make but also really versatile,Β next time I plan on adding in some nuts and dehydrated fruits for extra flavour and crunch.
