I was thinking about German chocolate cake when I came up with this pecan chocolate chip coconut granola recipe. Toasted pecans, coconut flakes, and honey play with the flavors of the coconut pecan frosting. And semi-sweet chips add a hint of chocolate to the mix. The combination of crunchy, chewy, salty, and sweet is slightly addictive.
Pecan chocolate chip coconut granola is the perfect grab-and-go snack when you're looking for something a little bit sweet, that's also gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free. Make it at the beginning of the week and store it in single-serve containers to grab on your way out the door. Or if you're craving a savory snack, check out this paleo snack mix recipe.
