Blueberry Coconut Granola


The end of the school year is always bittersweet. It’s a time to rejoice in your children’s achievements, to reflect on all the delicious but fleeting moments, and to celebrate (perhaps with trepidation) the three months of unstructured days and long, homework-free nights ahead.

Here’s one activity you can embrace on a lazy summer morning. Peel the kids off the couch and recruit them to help you make this wholesome granola. This version inspired by our beach café Coast is full of toasty bits and just sweet enough to eat right out of the bowl. Layer it with fresh berries and yogurt in a parfait glass for a festive breakfast or healthy dessert.

Blueberry Granola

We usually make a double batch to enjoy all week or to pack in pretty little containers to give as gifts. Speaking of gifts, this granola is the perfect way to thank teachers for spending the past year enriching your little munchkins’ minds. Perhaps a year’s supply would be a good start.


Looking for another treat to thank the teachers? Everyone will appreciate my Farmgirl Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Plenty of time to enter our June cooking contest to win an autographed copy of my cookbook and other goodies!
