  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats, macadamia nuts, and coconut.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, coconut oil, and honey.
  • Pour mixture over the oats and nuts. Using two spatulas stir and "chop" the oat mixture until they are well coated.
  • Spread the granola out in a greased rimmed cookie sheet, or 2 if you need.
  • Press the granola down and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Gently stir the granola and bake for another 10-15 minutes, check to make sure that the macadamia nuts are browning but not burning.
  • Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely, about an hour. Break apart and add the cherries. Stir to mix well. Store in an airtight container.
