Coconut and Nuts Granola

Granola is one of those treats that tastes delicious, is super filling, and a great breakfast option with milk or yogurt, or even a snack!
Here is one of the various granola recipes I like to make. It has a delicious crunch from the toasted nuts, a delicate sweetness from the honey and brown sugar, and wholesomeness from the oats, and a fun flavour from the coconut and touch of rum extract! And the great thing about granola is that it is easily customizable, so you can make it your own!
Hm… I seem to be having a coconut and rum phase with all the bread and macarons and bars and crumble I’ve been making. Not to mention ice cream! Perhaps I am secretly craving the Caribbean beaches?
