Coconut Chia Granola

I just love coconut! It just gets me in a tropical mood.

Monday night is family night. Wich means watching Expedition Robinson and a late night snack 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Expedition Robinson is a reality show about two groups of famous people surviving on an island.  I know…I’m such a sucker for reality :p

The reason i’m sharing this is because the people on the island where eating coconut wich awakened a coconut granola craving!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To crunch up this recipe I added some chia seeds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was the perfect paradise like snack for tonight 🙂 I think I’ll have some for breakfast tomorrow too!
