    1. Hi Charlie, yes, of course you can leave out the coconut. However, please be aware the quantity of granola cups will be less, or you could replace with something else such as ground almonds or small seeds of your choice, or even some finely chopped dried fruit such as cranberries etc to bulk the mixture back up. Hope that helps!

      Hi Andrea, Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It is 1/4 cup of honey. I’ll edit the ingredients now so it is correct!! Much appreciated.

  1. This sounds yummy! If I just wanted to turn this into granola clusters do you think the baking time would be the same?
