Toasted Coconut and Pineapple Granola

With the warm weather coming so quickly this year, I keep thinking summer is just around the corner. It is not, but not only will the weather in E.Tex make you think it is summer this granola will have you wishing for summer days as well! Lovely bites of coconut, sweet pineapple are the perfect snack to help with the winter blues! Even if it feels nothing like winter!
