Almond Chocolate Granola
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ⅙ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅓ cup mild honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or any vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup chocolate, chopped (You can add whatever chocolate you like to eat. I added ½ cup milk chocolate and ¼ cup 72% cocoa Godiva dark chocolate)
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, almonds, coconut, sunflower seeds and salt.
  3. Heat a small pan over
  4. very very low
  5. heat and add coconut oil and honey. Melt it at very very low heat by continuous stirring and add it to the dry mix. Give it a nice stir so it all mixes together. Add maple syrup and cinnamon. Give it another quick stir.
  6. Spread it on a big baking sheet and slide it in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 mins, take it out and stir it all well and pop in the oven again. Repeat it three more times till it reaches a golden dark brownish color. Here if you like your's less toasted, you can bake it less. Make sure you stir it in between so it doesn't burn.
  7. Let it cool out of the oven for 5 mins and then add chopped chocolate. Mix it well. Let it cool down further. Once at room temperature, fill it in airtight containers or zip lock bags.
