Tropical Granola

1. Preheat oven to 300° F.

2. Mix together the oats, almonds, banana chips and shredded coconut and set aside.

3. Whisk together Florida Orange Juice and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Once the sugar is completely dissolved, pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and fold ingredients together until well incorporated.*

4. Spread wet granola mixture in a thin, even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

5. Bake for approximately 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. The granola will be a golden brown color and will cluster together when fully baked.

6. Allow granola to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container. Enjoy for up to 2 weeks.

*Tip: Do not over stir. Over stirring will cause the granola to break down and make it difficult to achieve the granola clusters we’re looking for.
