Toasted Coconut Granola

Granola is a staple in my house. I put it on pancakes, yogurt, waffles, rice cakes, etc. It is honestly so good and easy to make too! You can pack it with a ton of protein and healthy fats without all the added sugar that a lot of store-bought granolas contain. Plus it makes a great gift if you put it in a mason jar!
