Chocolate Granola

Last month I shared that I had made homemade chocolate granola for the first time in this post. One of my sweet readers, Cheryl, requested that I share my recipe.

Chocolate Granola:

4 cups rolled oats
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup chopped pecans (or your choice of nuts)
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar

Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit. Combine rolled oats, coconut, pecans, chia seeds and salt in one bowl. In a separate bowl combine cocoa, coconut oil, vanilla, honey and brown sugar. Then combine the rolled oats mixture with the cocoa mixture, mix well. Pour granola onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes then stir. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Allow to completely cool and do not stir granola until completely cooled.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe. It is perfect combined with homemade yogurt!
