Recipe: Homemade Chocolate Granola

Every morning Jonas loves to have some granola to start off his day. Although there are tons of different brands to choose from in store, I always think that homemade granola is the best way to go. No unnecessary added sugars or preservatives + it’s less expensive and a fun thing to make! Every now and then I mix up the type of granola I make for him on a biweekly basis, so last week I made him some chocolate granola to enjoy with yogurt for breakfast. It seems to be going down as a treat and I hope you all try this out as well!

Ingredients:

4 cups jumbo oats

1/3 cup raw cacao

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup raisins

 

Procedures:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients apart from raisins in a large mixing bowl.
  2. On low heat, melt coconut oil and honey in a pot until fully melted.
  3. Pour the melted coconut oil and honey mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until all of the ingredients are evenly coated in the wet mixture.
  4. Pour the mixture into a baking tray and press into the tray using a spatula or spoon to ensure you have some clusters in your granola.
  5. Bake at 180-200 degrees C for 30 minutes and mix a few times during the baking process to make sure all the granola pieces are evenly baked and golden.
  6. Once the granola is done- take it out of the oven and let cool completely. Add in the raisins or any dried fruit of your choice. You can store it in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks and use as toppings for smoothie bowls, yogurt or even alone with milk as a healthy and delicious breakfast!
