The number one problem I see guys who call themselves 'Hard Gainers' struggle with is food, particularly breakfast. Now the problem isn't always food selection, more so overall calorie consumption.
When you truly are a hard gainer, staying lean isn't the issue, it's obviously gaining mass. Keep that in mind when planning your meals and be sure you're planning meals that are rich in muscle building ingredients, clean proteins, low glycemic carbohydrates, and good fats.
However in the end, just make sure you eating your automobile weight in calories.

What kind of taste does coconut oil have? Personally I hate the texture of cocnout meat (like biting into a pile of squirming maggots). What does the oil add to this?
Coconut oil is tasty and loaded with calories. I think I only had it the once but it was pretty good. It's a saturated fat like butter.
